Default 06 Civic SI engine swap into 1996 Civic EX!?

I am posting for a friend who is not computer savvy. Is it possible to swap the engine from an '06 Civic SI into a '96 Civic EX?

Hmmm. Well he is a mechanic with his own shop. He likely would not have asked me if he didn't already have a donor engine/car. I can see if he will do some pics of the work :)

Yeah me too but since a lot of people are doing k swaps, that means B series are going to get cheaper and i'd rather have a turbo B series than a K

I am the one who my friend posted for about the 06 si swap into the 96 ex. What is needed for this swap? I have the engine, however the transmission is auto and I have a manual car. I am looking for a manual trany now. Looking for tips on conversion kit i would need?

Thanks

they can be really expensive depending on how you approach the swap. Buying all the pre-made parts to swap is a killer. buying second hand and doing fab work saves thousands.

the cheapest way of getting a k swap, is by buying someones completed or nearly complete project.
