    Hey guys !
    Im going to do soon this swap in my EK 96 coupe.
    My question is my radiator will be good enough 4 the new engine ?
    I attached a picture of my radiator (i dont know if it 1 or 2 cores) ?
    If u think that i have to replace it what r my options ?
    Thanks!

    I wouldn'tbe sure what radiator you have in there right now, but you have alot of options for cooling.
    You could use a stock radiator for a 99-00 civic Si (b16a2) that way the water necks on the radiator would be the right size for your B swap, and it's 2 core.
    You could get an aftermarket radiator from any number of companies including Koyo, Fluidyne, Visteon and OBX
    There are also some no-name companies, but to me a radiator is a radiator and as long as it's all aluminum (no plastic end tanks) it'll last quite a while.

    But we havent got the 99-00 Si model in our country nor any integra model.
    Is there another model of honda that i can take his radiator and plant him without modifications?

    you could use a delsol that is a vtec. i bought a twin core delsol radiator. you can also use this product called water wetter. it is a liquid to add to your antifreeze that is guarenteed to run 20 degrees cooler.

    My feelings toward the smaller water necks is widely known, a better option would be eBay Motors: CIVIC DEL SOL 92-00 ALUMINUM RADIATOR B16 B18 B Series (item 250150905976 end time Aug-10-07 15:30:00 PDT)
    it is actually a little bit cheaper and from a company that i have bought from, but it has the right size water necks for the b series so that you don't have to crank down the clamps etc. etc.

    Oh, and the radiator that eg6 showed you is a great radiator,
    Koyo is one of the worlds leading manufacturer of aftermarket and OEM radiators, they are not a no-name company, and they usually have a 1 year warranty or more with their radiators.
