    I have a 1997 civic with an automatic D16Y7 and im interesed in performing a GSR swap. I found a B18C1 for $700 w/out trans and I am wondering if I can use the one I have. One of the solonoids are messing up and the transmission slips a little. I am planning on changing it out for a manual later on, this would just be a temporary solution.

    Any insight is appreciated. Thnaks!

    d-series trannys will not bolt up to a b-series block, so no. best bet is to buy a manual swap and do the auto-manual conversion at the same time.

    if you want performance, ditching the slushbox is the #1 thing to do

    alright so how hard would it be to change my car to a stick? its cheaper that way with a different engine? the only reason i want it an auto is cause i text all the time and i have the iphone so it will be easier with an auto. so could i do it with an auto or no? if i had to change it to a stick what would be the best way to go to get speed and a shinny engine that i can show off and not cost a whole lot?

    If you are only concerned with a shiny engine, then stick with what you've got and clean it up.

    If you are serious about performance, here's an auto to manual conversion write up that I found: [FAQ] 96-00 Auto to Manual Swap in full detail!! (44pics) - Honda-Tech

    That'll get you setup for a manual. You need to do the same thing, just do a B-Series swap while you're doing it. Have you ever done anything like this before?

    ha i havent dont anything like this at all. i know nothing about cars but i want to learn. i am interested in a high performance engine and it looking like a show engine. i have a couple grand too spend but i have no clue what i am doing and a shop is going to be too much i think. i have a garage that i can work on it all winter but i would like it done now. right now im looking for ideas. i want 200 hp to the wheels. that is my goal in an auto if i can and it has to look all shinny and new outa the box. it needs to be able to hold a turbo with a blow off valve cause i like the sound but i meant it when i said i know nothing about cars. any info on what kinda motor and everything u would put in your car say u had 3500 cash that would get 200 and look new would be helpfull. and if u know how to do it cheaper works for me?

    Honestly that wasn't really the smartest thing to say. Most likely you're going to get a bunch of "get off your phone and concentrate on driving, dumbass" responses. And they wouldn't be entirely unwarranted.

    Anyway, I'm not exactly sure what you're getting at with the whole "shiny engine" spiel. If you want a good-looking engine then you just need to wash it and keep it clean. If you want it to look "blingy", then invest in after-market accessories (oil cap, hoses, etc.) that are chromed or anodized, and paint or chrome your valve cover.

    As for whether you can build up your automatic to 200 horses, the answer is yes, but the transmission will probably break before too long. Honda slush-boxes aren't built to handle a bunch of extra power. And just FYI, the easiest way to get to 200 horses with your current engine is to add a turbo...

    lol yeah i get the get off the phone asshole all the time. alright ill go to a stick then. what would u do to change a auto to a stick other then having to add the new peddle for engine wise to get my amount of hp and have it run mint. when i hit the gas i want it to go fast. im thinking 200 with the engine and then a little turbo with a blow off valve would be good. what is your insite? and how much u think it would cost?

    when you die, i hope its because you hit a tree in the middle of nowhere. i hope you don't kill a family of 5 because of your stupidity.

    honestly, the last thing you need is something to go even faster and kill more people. if you want to text in the car, have someone drive for you.

    again, when, not if, you crash, i hope you only kill yourself and not someone else.

    now get off my forum.
