    Ok unless i have no idea wtf i am reading or i am just really tired. But correct me if i am wrong, pissedoffsol you stated in the article non-recommened swaps that any c series motor is not recommended for a 6th gen. Now i was all happy and ready to buy parts to build my all motor gsr for my 2000 civic SiR. Please tell me i read something wrong. :unsure:

    Maybe he got the "c" in b18c mistaken for something else.

    I've been tryin to figure this out... I know the 99-00 Si is OBD IIb...the 94-95 GSR motor is OBD I right? I don't know what OBD designation the newer GSR motors are...so if you have a GSR motor in your SI-R then you don't have to worry about it.

    Like I said I'm not sure what OBD designation the 96+ GSR motors are...but hold on a second, I'll look it up.

    Ok so it says 94-01 GSR is either OBD 1 or 2...I'm going to make the assumption that 94-95 is OBDI and 96+ is OBD II... meaning 96+ GSR motors should be a LOT easier to swap, as stated in the article, backwards compatibility is what it's all about. 2000 gsr motor should fit into a 2000 Si-R.

    Ok so 96 2000 is a p72 obd 2 not la p2t obd 2b like mine. Looks like there isn't many like mine now what are the big differences between these. If i were to build my all motor gsr 96 to 2000 is its ecu plug and play with my car or am i facked.

    Ok wait i think most of the posts are based on non vtec models, i think. But i still would like to know what i do to my ecu or what ecu to get. I know i wanna run either hondata or a vafc.

    Hey thanks alot man. Sorry for all the questions. Just started work today so i gonna be looking for a gsr engine. Unless i can find a good condition c5 block instead then i wouldn't have to worry aobut the OBD and that acutally sounds like a plan. Thats if i find a bare block which in my town is kinda hard.

    The B18C is one thing, C series engines are another.

    What the article is saying is not to try and swap C series engines into Civics. It's very rare to see one that's complete, and it's ridiculously expensive too.

    The C engines are the C30 and C32 that come standard in the NSX.

    Make sense now?

    The B18C is a B series engine.
