    Ok i have a 99 Civic automatic,,,I have found a swap but nobody can give info on,,,I found a JDM D15B Vtec E with a 5 Speed Tranny...Here is the questions I have will this work in my car, Will my stock wiring harness work with a obd2-obd1 harness. Will my y8 head work on this engine and will the tranny axles work on this model civic?

    Thanks in advance

    well i would just buy a obd2 d15b vtec that way the wires will match othere than that depending on what motor you get you may have to wire it up a little you got to change the driver side motor mount out,with the new motor and dont change the head unless its a vtec e they suck but a regular d15b vtec the head is better than a y8 what part of bama are u in

    D15..wow.....I thought my D16Y8 is bad..however, if you're gonna get any D15, get the one from the '99 Civic VTi EG4. It's pullin 3 more horse than my D16Y8, it's at 130 hp.

    um..hmm..are you planning on converting from an automatic to a manual along with doing the engine swap?

    cause there really is no point in dropping a more powerful engine into an automatic..it's just hell waiting to happen.
