Im gonna do my first swap, and Im not sure which set up to go with. Would a B20 be good for a daily driven car? and how much more would it cost compare to the b16.

b20 w/b16 or gsr tranny is mint for a daily driver. Lots of torque, especially compared to a b16. IMO a great engine for a daily driver cause you don't have to rev the bag out of it for it to be fast.

sell ur legend engine....
buy a b20 and gsr tranny.... get one with lsd if possible...
later, when u have more money... slap on a vtec head b16 or b18c head and upgrade the internals a bit while u're at the head swapping.... will make you a good daily driver with even more power once you have enough fun with the b20

C27, that's a 6 cylinder eh? It will fit but with extensive mods, drop in, I don't think so.

B20 long block is less than a thousand, B16 tranny for 6 or 7 hundred? Then get axles, engine bracket(s) from Integra, radiator with proper hose size (32mm), tune your ECU a bit and I think you are good to go, right?

And you can save money on labour, since you are doing the swap yourself. Overall, 2G could potentially cover it. But don't quote me on that.

Good thing about B20 is decent torque (about 30lb more than your D16), and also runs on 87 octane gas. Fuel mileage could go down a bit if you go with a short geared transmission but if you can keep your feet out of the gas paddle, 450 or a bit more should be possible.
