    I'm pretty sure this is the right fourm for these questions if not im sorry! lol
    But just picked up a 1996 civic coupe from a dealership and i wanna be fast lol. I was think of doing a b16b or a b18c5 swap and then boosting it. Has anyone done this swap and ran into any problems, maybe advise not to do it. Now I know im asking alot of stuff that should be in diffrent forums but dont like to bounce around and around.

    But not a complete noob...

    I was wondering where everyone gets their engines for swaps because like hell i wanna pay like 3 to 5 grand online. I know jdm engineering sucks... buddy got a 2jz off them and had rod knock like you wouldnt belive.

    But thanks for the help guys!!

    Yeah, wrong forum. This area is actually for 01+ Civics. You want the one above this.

    As for your other questions, if you're planning on boosting, I'd skip the Type R motors. An LS or GS-R engine would cost a bit less, but would still be potent with forced induction, plus, the compression will be a bit lower, so you'll have a bit more room for error when it comes to tuning and boost. If you boost on a high-compression Type R engine then it needs to be tuned impeccably.

    As for where to buy, try: Specializing in JDM-USDM Engines & Parts...hmotorsonline.com

    Why don't you first tell us how much you're going to spend. Are you going to be doing this yourself? Do you even have any idea on how to swap the motor in it yourself?
