    I have a '95 Civic EX for a daily driver and the engine failed when a friend was driving (broke a couple of rods). I'd like a low cost easy swap, preferably a JDM. Is the D15B an identical swap? I'm going to have a friend do the swap, but he does not want a conversion project. The body is in great shape.

    Any advice on the easiest swap to do?

    I'm looking at:
    Tiger Japanese Auto Parts LTD - D15B SOHC VTEC Engine only Honda Civic 92-95

    For $525 + $135 shipping to Indiana.

    All you have to do is look at the block, and that will tell you exactly what you need for an identical swap :)

    I believe your 95 ex is a d16z6, but yes, look at the block it's stamped on the lower left near the exhaust manifold.

    the d15b is the closest thing you will find to a z6 or y8 from the us market
