    I have a 92 acura b18 engine and was wondering is it possible to put it into a 87 mighty max?

    Sure. You can put just about any engine into any vehicle. It will require extensive fabrication and a great deal of time. Virtually everything will have to be custom made/designed to adapt it.

    you can do anything with enough time/money/skill usually you can get by with just 2 sometimes it takes all 3 but the more you have of 2 the less you need of the third but is it worth it? prolly not. Is it different? definately. its your truck do what you want

    It's a FWD engine and there is tonnes of ancillary stuff hanging off the 'rear' of the head overhanging the transmission housing. You'll need to think about engine mounts, sump clearance, a custom made set of headers, modified intake manifold, getting hoses to mate up to the radiator and heaters... It is a massive job and all of it will need custom fabrication. Good if you got the skills and equipment but bankruptingly expensive to outsource.

    and a full s2k setup will not be cheap and would provide a easy 300-400hp 4g63 so unless the s2k trans bolts up to other engines like your b18 it would get harder the thing i would do is go search honda forums to find peoples rwd builds and just do all of that into the mitsu truck being a fwd engine it should be front sump making the crossmember clearance a lot better

    The B series honda engine rotates counter clockwise, you would end up with 5 reverse gears and 1 forward gear,the k series and f series in the s2000 rotates clock wise,You can buy the cams to make the B series engine rotate clockwise but your looking at $1500 or more
