Default RSX to Civic

I was thinking of getting a new car and I wanted to know if I could swap an 04 RSX engine and tranny into a 04 Civic Si. What would I need to buy or whatever? Would it be a problem with the stick being in the dash?

Hate to be the first to tell you but you should search.

seeing that the ep3 SI already has the base rsx engine in it, i think a rsx-s engine would bolt up fine.

1. search
2. the linkage is different, im pretty sure the tranny is the same, if its not you need a diff. tranny b/c of the shift in the dash
3. why did you paint mandark black?

Seeing how I don't really ask that many dumb question (just give out smart *** answers). What's this search thing about and how does it work (like I said, since I've been on here I really haven't had a need to do it.

P.S. Let's not lose focus on my questions. Would the tranny fit fine or what?

1. I'll get right on that.
2. The RSX Type-S (I'll be more specific in the future) is a six speed.
3. Becaue people say that we look alike (on account I have a big head**two of them actually**).

i don't see why you would spend that much money on a whole new k20 engine (unless you mean just swapping heads)when you could just supercharge the engine you ahve now and be just as fast if not a little faster than type s's, and buy just buying a supercharger or turob you would be saving about 3500 dollars. that is just my 2 cents though.
