    OK,

    I want to do some sort of swap into my 2003 Honda Civic EX Coupe. I was wondering if I would be able to put a B16 from a 1999-2001 Honda Civic SI Coupe into my car. I don't really want to hear a lot of the smart answers that I've been reading so far (i.e.; you can fit anything into anything if you have the money) because all I'm looking for is information on how to do it. If anybody has any real information on this or could even simply point me in the right direction I would appreciate it immensely.

    Thanks,
    ALEX

    To be quite honest, those engines aren't easily interchangable. After 2002 honda engines began rotating in the other direction. Its not the biggest problem in the world but its hard to install it and to wire it. If its a opinion you want, i would suggest you look into a k-series engine. It will be a lot easier for you to get done. Good luck :)

    K20 would suit you much better, and it has more torque than an a2.

    Agreed! K-Series all the way in this case. The B-Series would just be a pain in the you know what.

    if you want to put a b16 in it you might as well be a pimp and get a cl type-s motor and try to fit that shit in there!

    j-series all the way! :worthy:

    K = makes more sense, but the B is easy too. You just won't find any ECUs on the market to run it (maybe 2001 ITR), and there aren't any mount kits for it either.
