    hi i currently in the process of getting everything i need for an ls swap in my 96 civhatch....i've been pricing usdm b18b1 long blocks but was just wondering if there is any difference between the stand and the auto? of course iam getting the stand but there are alot more auto long blocks to choose from out there than 5spds....i know for example some engines have less aggresive cams from standard to auto....any input would be great :) just making sure i do all my homework ahead of time.

    thanks
    clive

    Hey buddy, I just swapped in an LS into my 99 civic coupe. The block came from an automatic and only had 22,000 miles so it's fairly new. Think about it this way, since it came from an auto, it probably hasn't been revved on much which keeps the motor fairly new compared to a manual with the same amount of miles. I'm not sure if there's a significant difference between an auto and a manual block. Oh yeah, and I'm running a turbo too.

    hmmm...no problem slapping the standard tranny on the block? no goofy crap left over from the auto?

    If it's the cams, just upgrade them to better ones. It will probably be stronger than stock manual block cams. :D
