Hi all, Thinking of doing a swap, not me but a mechanic, but I wanted to come in here to get some opinions first because going ahead of it as I'm not sure if it will work. The host vehicle is a 2000 Acura 1.6EL (automatic) with 350,000kms on the body. Everything stock, no rust, rust proofed, garage stored. So I'm thinking of swapping in a B series engine that is currently in a 1995 Civic CX hatch. I was planning to just get the Civic h/b and drive it but the rear-quarter panel is already rusted and has a hole so I'm not sure how well it holds up in Canadian winter. That is a track car. I don't have either in possession, but are currently for sale. The 1.6EL has the same body as the '06-'00 4dr Civic. So here's the list that I wish to swap from the Civic: Engine Custom-made B head and block, reconditioned ACL race series engine main/rod/thrust bearings Aftermarket intake pipe @ 2.75 in ARP head studs Civic SIR water pump Civic type R N1 crank pulley Civic type R pistons @ 81.5mm Custom-fit magnaflow catalyst @ 2.5" OEM 240cc injectors Ferrea 5000 series valves at stock size Ferrea valve guides Gates 170F thermostat Integra type R style 70mm throttle body JDM B16A block - bore up to 81.5mm, stock stroke Megan racing 4-1 header with 2.5in outlet OEM/NGK laser Platium spark plugs NGK ignition wires RS-R Exmag GT2 CBE Samco sport silicone rad. hoses Skunk2 dual valve springs Skunk2 pro series intake manifold Skunk2 titanium valve retainers Skunk2 tuner series camshafts stage 2 Spoon high CR 2-piece head gasket Spoon thermo-switch Spoon hi-pressire radiator cap Stock crank and conâ€™rods USDM B16A3 cylinder head 96GSR fuel pump KOYO OEM style radiator ECU a tuned unit from speed innovations @ Florida Full Throttle launch @ 3200revs CEL shift light @ 8500revs Rev limit @ 9200revs VTEC switchover @ 5000revs Tranny/ Driveline 98 JDM ITR helical LSD tranny with 4.7 Final Exedy stage2(3-puck) clutch kit with normal thickness Exedy FF01 lightweight flywheel Hasport shift linkages w/ energy suspension bushings skunk2 short shifter energy suspension 3 pcs engine mount Suspension/handling Function and form type 2 coilover - dampening,spring preload,full length adjustable, w/ Swift springs F18k R16k(will include the 8k6k setup that came with the coilover kit) energy suspension front lower arm bushings (haven't install the rears) megan racing rear lower control arm ASR style rear subframe brace password JDM style front 3 point strut bar 92 GSR front brake conversion w/ brembo blanks and HP+ pad w/ earl's SS brake hose GSR rear disc conversion with hawk HP+ pads w/ earl's SS brake hose energy suspension trailing arm bushings 96 GSR brake booster+master cylinder 95 SI HB proportioning valve 40/40 That is what's currently on the Civic. Firstly, should I even consider doing this? If so, then I would like to know if the 1.6EL, going from A/T to M/T, is possible using the ITR tranny? In addition, are the parts compatible and could everything be swapped to the newer car or some parts will be left out? Would any modification need to be done, such as drilling holes, fitment issues? Lastly, will I be able to retain the power features such as heated mirrors, sunroof, windows, etc? This will be used for a DD, but will be a very mean one. Thanks in advance for your input.
