New to the forums and bearing a few swap questions! =]
Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums and just thought i'd say "Hey!"
But um, hehe.. any way. On to the subject matter. . .
1993 4dr Honda Civic
Black Paint Job
and everything but my sound system is stock.. As far as i know..
-What I want to do-
Swap my car with a B18C Engine
And hopefully push around 200WHP (maybe more if i feel like losing the MPG)
1. I've heard that the B18C engine is a direct swap, and no need for engine mounts or anything like that. But, considering the B18C engine is Vtec, what would i have to do to connect the wires to my ECU?
2. Is it really all that difficult to do a swap like this?
3. When looking on ebay and other engine sites, i was thinking that i should get a set that comes with everything includeing the Tranny. Is this what is should do?
4. When i complete the swap and start looking for a new exaust system, do i look for an exaust system that is for the '93 Civic, or for the Integra which the new engine is coming out of? And what modifications, if any, would i have to do to get the exaust system on?
5. would it be more benificial for me to install a custom tach? or buying a gauge cluster that comes with a tach?
I hope these questions are easy enough to answer with out a whole lot of hassel.
any insight would be greatly appreciated!
*EDIT* I found this engine on Ebay, and it is advertise as a swap... Does it come with everything i'll need for a complete engine swap?

Whats parts are sellling? lol
Thanks for the link norcalGSR! Thats looks like a very nice site.
I found this engine on there http://www.hmotorsonline.com/shop/sc...age&item=30009
And i was wondering if it comes with a tranny, and just the option to upgrade to LSD for 300, or does it not come with a tranny at all?

okay awsome, thank you so much for the site.
Also one more question,
Do you guys know of a B18c engine diagram so i can start studying it and figuring out what all the parts are and stuff?

Alright cool, thanks!
Hm.. I was just thinking...
If i buy the engine from the site i posted above (http://www.hmotorsonline.com/shop/sc...age&item=30009)... Would i have to do all of the Vtec rewiring like shown in this post
How to wire vtec
The reason i was thinking i wouldn't have to do the rewiring is because it says that the package includes the "ECU (P72)" And so, if it does include the ECU for that engine, i would just replace my NON Vtec ECU with the ECU that came with my car, right?
I'm a little confused right now... heh.. if you couldn't tell.
Complete B18C GSR engine swap. . . 3000$
Turbo kit. . . 1200$
The hair pulling head splitting experience you get when tuning your car. . . Priceless.
For everything else, there's Mastercard.
A pretty nice in-depth Honda swap guide.

Yeah you will still have to run the VTEC wiring, but it's not as hard as it seems. Your ECU will plug right in, but Honda didn't run the wires for VTEC in the harness unless it had it from the factory so basically you're just adding a few wires to the factory harness plugs from the ECU.
