    You need a crate motor swap.
    Motor(Long Block)
    Valve Cover to Oil Pan including distributor, Intake manifold, Exhaust Manifold
    Hasport B Series into EK Motor Mounts

    Trans
    ACT Clutch
    Linkage
    Axles
    Engine Harness
    ECU
    Your car is non-VTEC which means for a VTEC motor swap you need to run the one or 2 wires with your engine harness into the car's ECU.
    might as well get a bigger radiator while your at it too.
    Start There see what happens

    I'm doing the same swap - have you bought the engine yet? Let me know what you find out - I still need to buy the engine, but I would like to get all of the parts at once - what websites were you lookin at to buy from?

    to this swap u will need a couple of things
    if its a gsr motor u have to get:
    gsr axles
    gsr ecu
    gsr shift linkage
    back t bracket from a 99-00 civic si
    driverside post mount from a 99-00 civic si
    the gsr wire harness will NOT fit a civic
    you could use your sohc vtec harness on it
    you would just have to extend some wires

    ya. You will need to run the wires for the oil pressure switch 1 to the ecu and the other 1 to the neg on the batt or a ground elts were, and the other 1 comes from the vtec sylonoied on the motor. All this can be found on hondaswap in the search section. Just type in vtec wire up lol

    I got a b18c1 out of a gs-r and i am looking to get rid of it for a good trade or cash. I have the wire harness and the ecu, shift linkage and axles. It currently sits in a 96 civic ex.
