    Want to get ideas of how fast this swap would be? I know its no B16 but it is a lot cheaper for me. With the money i will save i am going to build the engine. how many mods will it take to match the stock B16
    Already have: Ractive Short Ram, 2.5 inch exhausr with HP Racing rear section no resonator.
    i plan to add:

    Cams skunk 2
    valvesprings skunk 2
    headers DC
    Cam Gear AEM

    in what range do you think i will be running stock and with these mods.

    Hopefully get into the low 15s upper 14s

    skunk2 doesn't make d-series cams
    skunk2 doesn't make d-series valve springs
    your car only requires one header, not 2 headerS
    aem cam gears suck. get skunk2

    My friend and I performed this swap on his 93 CX HB recently. We used a D16Z6 rather than a Y8 though. They are practically identical except for the combustion chamber design on the head. They Y8 features a more square design which translates into higher compression. This is why the Y8 has 127 HP and the Z6 has 125. But I would go with the Z6 because it is OBD1 and the Y8 is OBD2. This will make wiring alot easier. All you need is the motor, trans, ecu, engine wiring harness and a 4 wire O2 sensor (because you CX motor has a single wire 02 from the factory) for the Z6 swap.
    This swap alone with no mods should make your CX run mid to high 15's in the 1/4. Add I/H/E, cam, and performance ECU, You should be able to get into the low 15's maybe high 14's with the right tires and plenty of practice.
    As far as cams, crower makes a good cam and valve spring set for the d16 vtec. Btw AEM cam gears dont suck. Especially for the cash. but Skunk2 gears may be better. Good luck with your swap! If you have any questions feel free to email me.

    D16Y8 is a '96 ^^ motor, thus OBDII... stay away if you have an EG civic
