    Hi guys,

    I'm planing to do SWAP from my crappy D16Y7 ('96) to more sporty B16A2 ('99).
    First of all I want to understand the project scale...
    What parts should be swapped? Wiring problems? Is it compatible?
    Is it possible to install B16 in the same body holes or they are differs and should be re-drilled?

    Thanks in advance for your answers!

    you will NOT have to re-drill any holes. this is essentially a bolt-in swap. provided that the harness in the car is stock, youll just need to run wires for the VTEC solenoid, oil pressure sensor, and knock sensor.

    youll need to swap the engine mounts for B-series mounts:
    99-00 Civic Si upper driver's side mount
    94-01 Integra, 99-00 Civic Si, or 93-97 Del Sol VTEC rear T-Bracket
    94-01 Integra Shift linkage
    94-01 Integra Axles
    94-01 Integra Throttle cable would help your cause (see if you cant snag the mount also, it requires some modification to get it working correctly)

    Of course youre going to need the engine, transmission, and ECU from the b16a2 as well.

    I think I covered just about everything. It is a fairly simple swap once you get going.
