    EG EK etc is a generic breakdown for the generation of the car
    EG = 92-95 civic
    EK = 96-00 civic
    DC2 - 94-01 integra


    OBD stands for On Board Diagnostics and mostly has to do with emissions compliance... 1, 2a, 2b all being different generations of OBD

    you will find a lot of answers to your basic questions here in the reference section Technical Articles and Reference - HondaSwap Forums

    A lot of aftermarket support for the b18c too. I just finished my swap and it's sweet.
    EM1= 99-00 civic si

    Ideally, you want a OBD1 B18C1 swap but a OBD2 will work. There are way too many ways to make it "work" But if the swap is OBD2......I would swap over the necessary OBD1 stuff (OBD1 P72 ECU, Harness, Distributor, Alternator, Injectors)
