O and plus i heard from the previous owner that B series Blow Up Easily

That seems to be a very general assumption there that saying that all b's blow up easily....

do a little reading there is a wealth if info on the net......

here is The article on swapping a b its not a direct swap... you need mounts, linkage, ecu, axles, big hammer etc.. .

a lot better gains from a b than a d ( stock for stock) but you need to decide what your budget is and what you are comfortable with doing..

yeah the b20 crv engine is not bulletproof but it was really never designed to be cranked to 8 grand either.. but it makes TORQUE you dont have to wail on it to get it going.... b16a is popular and reliable.....
b18a integra engine has good torque runs great and is a cheap b swap since you can find the engine here in the USA in running order for little money.....

read it al up and decide on what you want to do and we all will be here to help you out along the way..
