First of all i am not looking to make a race car or anything just looking to get a nicer family car since m wife and i just had a baby girl in october. that being said here is the skinny.... I was recently given a 4 door 95 honda civic dx by my cuz who has too many cars. the car has the stock d15b7 and is pretty complete. the motor, trans, cv's etc are all out since he had a boosted d16z6 p28 and associated parts. since then he has bought a "cooler" looking honda 2 door and yanked the motor and trans to put in that 1. The original motor has 275+ on it and needs to be rebuilt according to my cuz and all the rebuild kits i have found are pretty expensive or close to the same price as a d15b jdm motor i found out here close to my house from an importer( 400 for a rebuild kit +?$ machine work vs 600 jdm motor) i am on a limited budget (aprox 1500) and would like to have some spare tax refund cash to buy my wife a little something. So here is the question/questions 1. What all do i have to get in order to do a jdm d15b swap into my "new" 95 dx? Aside from ecu p08/p28 and vtec wiring add to my stock harness? 2. do i "have" to get a different trans or can i use the stock one? 3.i have heard a lot about how it is possible to add vtec to wiring harness but have not seen a walk through (if one exist) about how to do it. Any such "walk through"? Any help i can get would be awesome. I have worked on a lot of cars in my life so i am familiar with tools and such so i am confident i can do this swap with some guidance. Reason I am asking this community is well, the car was free so I would like to be able to do this without having to ask my cuz too many questions( although he will be there to help answer any questions that come up on the fly. Very excited to join the "club" of honda guys. Always wanted one (5th gen/6th gen) but could never afford 1. Driving 91 ford escort. get me outa this beater and into a honda PLEASE!!!!!!!
