    hey, since i crashed my 94 bmw 530i i decided now that im gonna get 1998 or 99 Honda civic ex.
    since I have money from my insurance Im thinking that after a month or 2 of having it I want to put a better faster motor in it. Im going to put in a b16a si r motor and I need some advice and tips.
    List Of Parts Included
    • Complete Motor
    - Block
    - Intake Manifold
    - Complete Head
    - Sensors
    - Exhaust Manifold
    - Fuel Rail
    - Injectors
    - Distributor
    - Throttle Body
    - Starter
    - Alternator
    - Ignition Wires
    - Headers
    • OBD2 ECU (Computer)
    • 5-Speed FWD Hydraulic Transmission
    - With Clutch components assembled to the engine
    • Intermediate shaft
    • Axles
    • Shift linkage

    these are the list of things that will come with the b16 when I buy it and I was wondering if there anything els I'm going to need to go along with it. Is there anything missing from the list that I will have to buy separately to do the swap?

    Another question I have is since the civic im gonna buy will most likely have like 130-150,000
    miles on it I was wondering if there are any other components that typically wear that would need replacement separately from the items on the list. I know thats a general question because it depends on the car but GENERALLY what might need replacement or what wold be smart to replace.

    I obviously have no mechanical experience so someone would be doing the swap for me and i expect to pay around a $1000 for the labor or i might know a couple freinds that could do it for me for cheaper but is that a good price to expect. some forums say $500, $600, $1200

    sorry guys for all the questions ima total newb at this so if you guys could help that would be great.
