    bought my 97 civic hx for cheap. have 5,500 to spend on a engine and upgrades. was looking at the b18b because they come from the factory with forged pistons and rods (want to add a turbo at some point). butttt my question is i cant find a b18b for my particular car. can it be done? any help appreciated.

    also... any help tips on what to buy to get the most out of my 5500 are welcome. Thanks, cheers

    B18B1 can go right in. you will need:

    -integra axles
    i-ntegra int. shaft (or you you can use like 00 si axles, B16a2. what ever you use, MUST match your int. shaft.
    -integra or 00 SI shift linkage.
    -use the harness that is on your car already. just swap the harness over, your sensors will be the same if you use a B18B1.


    Now, if i were you, get a B18B1 with LOW Miles, or with GOOD compression. go get a good, name brand, stage 1 clutch for daily driving, and buy or peice together GOOD QUALITY turbo parts. put it on 12lbs and get it tuned. you will love it. fast, fun, and extremely affordable.

    What do you mean you can't find one for your particular car? Any B18B will work. A B18B from a 96-98 Integra will work best, since it's the same OBD generation as your car.
