You are in the Speed Shop Tuning and Modification
What is this discussion about?
This forum is to ask questions or enjoy bragging rights about swapping out your stock engine for a more powerful one, be it the same make or from another make of car. This forum is NOT for descriptions of replacing same with same merely to replace a blown up motor. Use the Maintenance & Repair Board for that kind of swap.

It really wouldn't be worth the motor swap if you want a single overhead cam motor realistically an integra isn't the car to look to. They had an entirely dohc engine line-up and it would really be kind of pointless to do the modifications to drop in a sohc engine from a civic or something similar. The stock nonvtec hp or an integra is more than any vtec sohc motor they make, honestly if you want a solid chassis for racing look into a 90-96 civic hatchback. the 90-93 versions or ef chassis are very light, easily modded and almost any d-series sohc motor is a direct drop in. I've seen them as high as 11 second cars on a sohc vtec motor due to the weight of the car.
