    Hey guys, this is my first thread and id like to ask what is the best motor to swap into my 1997 Civic EX. i was looking at the B16B for the most HP right away, plus i like the high revving. any advice is appreciated. i plan to do road races, no dragging so i figured the H-series would be too heavy for my application. Thank you.:)

    well when you buy the B16B it will come with a lsd tranny and ecu. other than thats all you will need is linkage 2 motor mounts and axles, just use 99-00 si axles,its a super easy swap make sure you get the b16b tho this is the best place to get them Specializing in JDM-USDM Engines & Parts...hmotorsonline.com
