B16B 1595ci [email protected] & 118lbs/[email protected] 10.8:1
1997-2001 Civic Type R (JDM)

B18C5 1797ci [email protected] & 130lbs/[email protected] 10.6:1
1997-2001 Integra Type R (USDM)

B18C Spec R 1797ci [email protected] 130lb/[email protected] 11.0:1 1997-2001 Integra Type R (JDM)

To fit in your DX model. Toss out/sell your old D-series engine/transmission/ecu

What parts you will need that I think off the top of my head.

Basic list as follows:

Engine & Transmission
Correct ECU for that engine
Shift linkagage
Engine mounts
New clutch kit
New t-belt, water pump, & tensioner.

Check out TCC sponsors or local shops that HAVE done these before for prices on installs.

What's a frankenstein? Would it be another name for CRV/vtec?

I love B16B's they have an Insane rod stroke ratio. Like 2:1 or something ridiculously high? Id take one over a B18C. But only if it was going in a hatchback. Since you have a Coupe you should take a B18C or C5. The extra displacement and Torque will benifet the heavier car more. Hell you might as well just save some money and get a plain B18C1 and throw some bolt on's or some suspension work.
