Post EG K20RSwap costs? vs a H2b swap.

Im have this hatch EG for a long time now. been searching for motors now I have a full time job. its my side ride EG hatchback. What kinda makes me mad is I don't really know what to go with. right now I am boosting a single cam minime with turbo not even tuned yet. semi built got to brake it in and I am still not satisfied for my Honda. the motor I built blew up before like twice and I am sick of this thing happening. I want an all motor crank start ready to run as is. that will be very reliable for track and sometimes just for daily. ive been thinking a H2b setup also for a long time everyone says k killer etc. seems hella cheaper than doin a slow *** b16 swap from h motors etc but still expensive. a lot of guys might tell me go K series. but is it worthit? rialiabllity. or h2b I just don't want things to brake like axles and who knows? riability.
my first motor swap I wanted a straight up jdm b18c1 or a b18c5 type r eg easy swap like I heard.

but since motors now seems really close to a k20R series motor seems like a logical choice but is this swap hard? I just want all motor now and not going turbo just want a very fun long lasting car to drive. I love my EG hatch and idk if I will sell it I have ups and downs but now it just needs a dam motor.

as for a complete swap seems not too bad like 4800? for complete k20R? etc.
but what else would I have to need to buy to get this motor running perfectly in my EG as for as wiring and other parts
h2b or Kseries?
im tired of driving a slow *** civic.?
how much complete total would I net if I will do a k20R swap?

Here's a list of parts you'll need when doing a K swap into a Civic hatchback. I have never done an H2B before so I won't be able to help you there.

I personally currently have a h2b swap and a k swap cars. i can tell you off the bat the H2b is by far the cheaper the k swap. Especially if you are wanting the k20a type R.

h2b or Kseries? Depends on what is your goal.
im tired of driving a slow *** civic.? Both h2b or KSeries will fulfill your wishes
how much complete total would I net if I will do a k20R swap? let just say the amount of money to buy the k20r engine with transmission is enough to do a full h2b swap.

H-series engine with a B-series transmission, it's a pretty popular swap as the B-Series transmissions have some the best gearing and reliability.

Why go K20R? If you are just looking for a fun to drive swap get a K24. You can get one cheap out of a crv etc. A stock K24a1 for example will only run you about $700, then mate it to the type-s tranny for the 6-speed fun. All together the swap can be had for fairly inexpensive and has some much more potential for future upgrades: K20a2 head, RBC intake mani, cams, etc etc etc.

I for one really like the K series. I have also seen some fast *** H series cars. My buddy has a F20b with a b series trans and that car is also pretty damn fast. I have a full list of parts you'll need for a K series swap, if you are interested check it out in my signature. I would say go check out my build thread but its pretty useless since photobucket wants people to pay for image hosting after years of free use so that's not about to happen.

Or you could just get a K24A2 and skip the K20 head all together. The K24A2 head from the TSX flows just as good as the K20 heads, and the 06-08 TSX cams are the most aggressive OEM cams (even more aggressive than the Type-R cams I think, but citation needed there).

Also I'd recommend a PNN4 06+ Si Transmission over the Type-S K20a2, just personal preference on gearing.

Something to consider for OP is you CANNOT use air conditioning with an H2B swap in an EG chassis. There's no way for the compressor to fit, at all.
