I don't know what to do ...
Put this Mugen engine on my CRX ( Del Sol ) or use the B20 Block and B16a Head with one Jackson Racing Supercharger .....

That's a B20A mugen engine? Sorry if I sound stupid I've never heard of this. If it's anything like a normal b20A engine a b16 head won't fit on it without some major machine work.

How much did you pay for that? Any info on how to order one. E-mail me.
I've bought on Mercado Livre ( something like EBAY here )
I was thinking to sell it ... but this one ( Has no Price ) ... it's very rare and i don't know how much to send to USA ...

I would say you at least would need the intake that came with it to make it worth your while. If you can find the right buyer state side it be worth more to sell it, then trying to swap parts to fit it. You could try to sell it on ebay usa. That is an original b20a block not a b20z. Swap wont work.

If you part it out, I'd like to get the dry sump and valve cover.

in brazillian reais is r$ 10.000,00
Okay, I understand now r$ 10,000.00 if write the way we understand it. So you paid $4,300 US with the decimal it made me think you paid R$9.5111.

Without the actual intake throttle bodies I think you might have spent too much for what you want to do. You'd be better off putting that motor in a prelude then trying to make a vtec head fit that motor. No one who has done the swap got it to work correctly. Just think of that motor as bing a super b20a5.

I don't understand why anyone would buy that engine then immediately try to change it into something else.

Pure waste of a good engine IMO.
Tantamount to sacrilege.

Make sure you put a reserve to protect your investment. I think the best you'd get for is $2,000 US. It will be worth more if you can store it and try to sell it a few years from now. GOOD LUCK!!! Also list as a prelude b20a mugen motor when you sell it on ebay.

Sell the motor to get money for b16a3 then. You probably can get a brand new half block for abut 2.000,00 to 3.000,00 hear in the Us. Heck if that is all you want. I'll find a used one so we can trade.
