    if you are asking these questions, you probably shouldn't try to do a swap

    mikez: STFU, I didn't know shit before my swap...and it turned out great.

    ok now, back to business. pacsta:
    1st do a search on this site for b series swaps in an EG.

    The swap isn't that hard if you don't have to change OBD (the electronics system type). You want to stick with an OBD1 motor, so a b16 Sir II motor (b16a2) would be better than a b16, or you could go with a GSR motor as long as it is from the right year. I did my swap with NO prior car experience short of changing oil.

    No a b series motor WILL NOT work with a d series cvt tranny. However, most swaps come with a transmission, so its not that big a deal.

    You will need:
    Mounts (Hasport peferably, DONT get ebay shit.)
    Shift Linkage (if you're swapping a 5-spd instead of an auto)
    wiring (not too bad, proably have to wire up VTEC)

    You should also replace the water pump, timing belt, clutch, distributor, spark plugs, and wires.

    I don't know about any specifics as far as the HX goes. My car is a 90 CRX HF, and I have NO experince working on newer civics. I hope I helped a little.

    Just remeber to do reasearch on your own. Don't expect people here to hand feed you all the info you need. I did over a year of research before doing my swap and I found all the best sites overviewing my swap. You should do the same.

    Good luck.
