    Sir or Not its not automatic. You can get a complete swap b16 for 1200 in my own opinion. That pics looks like its from a usdm b16a3 obd2 del sol.

    And No, you got to add vtec harness and IACV to two wire, and make your car manual.

    Start here ...

    You car being automatic you can either convert to manual, or get an automatic B16A transmission. The conversion is a bit of work, you have to add the pedal set, the clutch lines, master cylinder, change the bracket on your car too I believe, but someone might make a mount that can use the auto bracket, not sure.

    Pretty much, but they are almost all going to be dogs on a B16A. I'd call up HMO, or other reputable online engine reseller and see if you can find a B16A auto tranny and ECU if you want to keep it auto, which while I usually hate automatics, I think it would be neat to have an auto B16A Civic to beat around town. Hell, it might even be able to be made into a very consistent track car, as you'd be taking out the most unreliable factor ...the driver shifting.

    Not sure if the 1st gen GSR was available in an auto, or not, if so, I'd see if you could track down one of those, or the JDM B16A.

    I was thinking that i want to add a turbo so maybe a manual would be better for the fifth gear.
