    I have a 95 Civic and I blew my 1.5 DX motor...now I have a very limited budget and wondered what other D-Series I can swap into my car...Do I have to stay OBD1? Are the D-series blocks and head interchangable? What swap should I do? I have the opportunity to get a motor for FREE I just don't know if it will work - I am not sure on the engine code either...please help!!!


    Thanks

    what do you consider a limited buget. depending on the cash you can spend will give you alot of options.
    you don't have to stick with obd1 you could use an obd2 or even a older engine.
    unless if you live in cali. then your gonna run into some issues.

    but it would help a great deal if we knew your budget.
    also what kinda performance you are expecting.
    before speaking of what would be best.

    Listen man, like crx-yem said you are gonna have to explain a little more about cash. My choice obd2 B16 series isn't even a bad idea. well hope u r in good luck with everything.

    as far as d-series blocks and heads being interchangable
    the answer would be yes.

    and I'd agree a d16z6 would be the cheapest route.

    you can get any d series block, and it will fit. Getting only the blcok should be VERY cheap, as i have purchased entire d15b7 W/tranny for a mere 250. So hopefully this falls within your budget. The swap should be a no brainer, everything should line up properly so you should have no problems

    Just to straighten things out... your car is OBD 1, and you want an OBD 1 replacement for the easiest wiring.

    D15B7 is the engine that was in your car, find one of these and it's a direct swap.
    D16Z6 is the engine from the 92-95 Civic EX and Si- you'll have to wire for VTEC and have some way to activate it, but you'll get more power.

    What do you want for the motor you have? I think right now I am going to be swapping my head on to the block I am getting for free...I just hope my head is OK - I hydrolocked my engine and found pieces of my block in the oil pan...

    i agree.... the d16z6 will fit right in... 1.6 L and 125 HP...but if u want to go for the gold... get a b16a3... OBD1 like what ur looking for...it'll push for 160 hp @ 7600 RPM....but agen... D series would be cheaper since ur on a tight budget...
