    okay so im new and had a post about my 92 eg before on this site.
    i have done nothing to that car since my post except take almost everything off and sand the front of the car and thats were i stand now. any way i bought a 89 civic sleeper from a mechanic . it has a b16a but its been rebuilt, port and polished new everything and made type R . converted to obd1 on hondata s200 . anyone know anything about puting the engine in my eg? the eg has a gsr tranny and ls motor on it. the 89 i think has the stock ls tranny? i know its a cable tranny. but could i swap the engines in the cars and both still run? Here are pics. oh and the 89 has a obx 2.5 stainless steel exhuast to the back . could i use that on my eg since im using the jdm 4-1 header aswell in the eg. if theres anyone who knows a shit ton about hondas and has done swaps forever now and wants to help me out please let me know im located in the 21234 area b-more

    You have a good start point but I'm a bit confuse.

    You want to swap engines?

    I recommend "NO" and "NO"...if the hatchback is already obd1 just get it tuned and leave it there. You could put a cable b16 trans in it to make it more fun.

    YOur eg, I recommend going Ls vtec all motor also and get it tuned and drag for weekend fun. Or, you could drag your ef. Either way you have a good setup besides the tranny you got. And I'm not convinced that your b16a is a type R and been rebuilt that thing looks like it havent seen a machine shop.

    as for your engine swap between ef and eg goes you can do that just make sure you groung the vtec sol. and run 2 wires to the ecu in the proper location and have the hondata re flashed for vtec if your useing the ecu from the eg but you can swap. i have done a b18c5 in a ef and then from the ef to an eg hatch.

    Clean up the mess under the hood. Paint, change rusted nuts and bolts, corrosion, etc. Then, take it from there.
