    B18C should be your choice...not a B16 (too little torque)

    For ease and less hassle, get a OBD1 motor with sensors and the whole 9 yards.
    B18C is an all around great swap....even the trans is nice and superior to the others IMO

    B series shift linkage and axles

    If you get a JDM motor, you need to use your old engine harness (LHD versus RHD) but you will need to extend a few plugs to reach the sensors on a bigger motor but they all plug right up. And The JDM B18C has no oil pressure sensor for VTEC like USDM so you run into other mods if you use a USDM ECU (easier just using the JDM)

    You also must run the wiring for the IAB's and knock sensor (do some research)

    In general......it's an easy swap but I suggest you do some more research and then ask specific questions. More people will be wanting to help if you dont seem to be a wanna be nOOb who will never swap (and we get TONS of those guys here)

    so according to your words, it will be best and easy swap to chosee b18c into eg. What i understand is, b18c will be working by it self without having cut your factory harnesses ( except couple of them ) and how about my linkcage, shifters, ac system, axels, and specific engine ecu and engine mount. Do you guys have list of all this part for b18c swap into eg? And also thank you so much for your help

    I said B18C was the right choice (but this is just my opinion)

    EASIER......I said OBD1.

    A/C bracket off a CRV B20 (PJ7) or Del Sol VTEC (P30) and use your stock compressor

    Power Steering......I used a JDM B16 PS pump but I cannot verify what others work.

    Already said B series axles and shift linkage (direct fit into your chassis)

    The s/c took the car from 165ish whp to 240ish whp. It was very reliable, power was on tap at any rpm, and it could spin the tires at almost any time in 1st and 2nd gear. I feel that any more power is too much for a little civic.

    You can use your stock radiator or you can run an aftermarket one the same size as stock, such as a Mishimoto.

    Just curious what ac belt you used, the one for the d-series since it's a d compressor, or did you use a b-series ac belt because you have a b-series A/C bracket? Can get confusing, so just wanted to know what belt you used to know what will work.

    Your set up (1992 Civic) is old school R12 freon. Parts need to be out of a 1992 or some 1993. Not out of a newer EG or you will need to replace the entire system out for a newer R134A style AC system.
