I have both, a B15, and an old B13 that has been dead with a blown motor for a year. I finally got the $$$ to make it run again, and at 165ish hp too....

The thing is, would the tranny hook up to the motor? I think with the right tranny, it's doable. It will cost alot of money no matter what, because of the labor costs.

sr20de in b15 xe.... attainable

the swap is do-able, only thing you need to do is change the harness and the computer....around 2400$ cnd funds, I already looked into it, The qg tranny is the same housing,although the gear ratios are different, so some internal tranny work is manditory, all the other motor components are identical( rad, alt, etc)

not including exhaust, I believe the drive shafts are the same as to what the sr20de is equiped with, not entirly sure on that one, check with your dealer,

you could also check with Trav , He might know a little bit more!

get that engine in there, then put the hairdyer(<boost)> in

Make sure the SR20 was from a front or all wheel drive vehicle, not a rear wheel drive vehicle.

I don't think that this is going to be a problem for you, since the SR20DE you have is almost definitely from a front wheel drive car, but it is an issue with the SR20DETs, since many of them were RWD, and they don't swap easily at all.
