    I got a 95 civic coupe with the stock D15B7 and I can get a really good deal on a D16Y7 out of a 97 civic. What is all needed to perform this besides the motor?? Do I need the ecu also??? Also any extra wiring??? Thanks for your time & help! :D

    its really not worth it
    youll only get another 5hp out of the new engine

    you will need to replace some of the plugs on your stock harness to get everything to work
    you should be able to run it off your stock ECU

    i wouldnt bother

    what are your goals with the car
    what is your budget like
    what do you plan to use it for

    need a little more info before anyone can really make suggestions on what is a good choice

    Just a good dependable daily driver with the option to add some bolt-ons. To make a decent runner. Looking to spend between $300 & $600 maybe alittle more.
