    How much of a pain would it be to put a b16 head on a b20 block and put it in a 92 civic ex? Are there any better engine swap options? This would be my first swap so any help is appreciated. Thx!

    b20 vtec is a good one, if you get it to work correctly.
    their a pain. friend of mine is doing one. he's blown four headgaskets.
    good luck though.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think im just gonna build a b16 on the side till I get it like I want it and then throw it in. Ill have to buy mounts, shift linkage, and axles from hasport right? What about the rear engine bracket from hasport do I need that too? Do I need to change the ecu out? What all do I have to do/get to do this? I want to know everything Im about to get myself into so I dont end up getting stuck somewhere because I didnt get one part. Thx!

    well whats it goin in? your festiva? lol. that would be the FESTIVA FURY!!!! fuck yeah!!!

    no seriously though. you dont have to get that shit from hasport. get the rear bracket mount off either ebay or your local junkyard (if they have one) and kinda have to know what its goin in to know what axles you need....

    built b16 is a good idea. or just boost a stock one. either way should be fun.
