    hello, i have a question for this swap. very soon i will be getting my civic and im planing on getting the b16 built for boost, (sleeved pistons rods studs valves crankshaft everything..) and i just had a basic question:

    what all is needed to get the b16 to work?

    axles- where can you get high hp axles from also?
    b series motor mounts
    shift linkage

    does it need throtle cables? or anything else for the swap?

    thanks, anthony

    The question somewhat depends on the generation of b16 you're swapping into the civic.
    You have an Ex, so you can use your rubber mounts, you'll need integra mount brackets though.
    Use OEM axles, otherwise-go Hasport.
    You can use the stock D-Series throttle cable, you just need to modify the bracket it sits on.
    Without knowing the year of your b16 (obd specifically) it's hard to say what wiring will be needed, if any.

    Yes, but sometimes people confuse B16 sir II with b16a2 and the brackets are different and the obd is different. If you have the SiR II, it's a direct bolt in. (With B series shiftlinkage and B series Axles)
    Yes, 95 is obd1.
    You'll be fine with stock motor mounts and axles if you plan to keep it stock. I'd look into upgrading mounts after 160-180whp,and axles after 250whp.

    And that's all you will hear, they have built a great reputation for themselves.
    You can't go wrong.

    Absolutely.
    Especially if you have the money to get it now, if you decide you want it later, you'll be kicking yourself in the ass.
