    i'm currently in the market for a 92-95 civic hatch and i want to swap in a b16a obd1 motor with bolt ons

    here are my questions:

    1. ive read that if i get the ex or si model, i do NOT have to rewire vtec...is this correct?

    2. ive swapped b18b into a 93 civic, are there many differences?

    3. what are the most benificial modifications to the b16a?

    as for modifications to the b16a ive decided i want:
    intake
    race header
    2.25-2.5 piping into spoon sports muffler
    integra type r cams
    integra type r intake manifold/throttle body

    anyother basic's that i may be forgetting?

    thanks for the input

    iTR int.manifolds good Idea. But u should really concider CTR cams, they're more aggressive price is about the same as well. =)

    only 92's are vtec and the rest are not but you will still need to get the wire from the shock towers to the ecu

    ctr and itr cams are the same cam on the exhaust side the only time the intake cam is different was from 97-99, the intake vtec lobe is 3* more on them (ctr) and that'll net you a little bit more power but in all honesty you probably won't be able to tell the difference

    not bad at all......if you do it right and re-pin every thing then it just takes a little more time and looks a hell of a lot better and stock
