    I just bought a B16a sirII from Hmotorsonline and I'm planning to install this weekend. The warranty says I need to install new spark plugs, spark plug wires (leads), rotor, timing belt, water pump and tension pulley, for the warranty to be valid. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is necessary for the engine to run or is it just a precaution?? Also if anyone has any tips or things to watch out for if they've done a b16 swap into a 92 cx civic hatchback (or similar swap). THanks, all input is greatly appreciated.

    its very necessary. engines are usually advertised as low milage, but the truth is you don't really know how long its been running.

    basically just about any place you buy a motor from will make you do that. i even bought a motor from junk yard and they had the replacement list on the back of the receipt

    It's a precaution list, as those are the things that would commonly wear out over time and need replacing anyway. They put it on there to save themselves the hassle of "my butt hurts, my new swaps timing belt broke because I was too lazy to do some maintainance on my motor so I want a new one "

    I just got the exact motor from there today and it doesnt look to bad. it is just a little beat up but not anything to worry about. I did get the whole swap it came out to 2675.00 shipping included. it is obd1 e-mail me if you want pics.

    Gooseguir Can you send me a couple of pics of the motor I am curious.
    Also I noticed there was a film of black oil in the intake manifold. It was kind of allot any ideas.

    No I just bought the motor tranny and ecu, I bought motor mounts axles and shift linkage seperately. I don't know about the "OBD connections"?

    Gooseguir, send me some pics of the motor when it arrives , and if u could do me a favor , and to other enthusiast too!, Could u shoot pics of the installation in your hatch??

    that would help me alot , since im in highschool, and Im thinking about doin this swap.

    Ill most likely install the motor swap @ my schools auto class garage, with the teachers and other friends!

    well , if you could please kind of make picture guide of your installation, that would really help me :worthy: :worthy: :worthy:


    Good luck

    My friend has a digi camera and he'll be with me when I do the swap this weekend so I'll try and work something out, shouldn't be that much of a hassle for me.

    Well last night I put my wire harness on the new motor and it looks like it is a little too short. Am I going to have to extend any of the wires? Also can someone tell me what sensors are where(like the one on the front of the intake manifold to the right side.

    Dude, the lsd is sick, nothing is better than being able to burn out with both wheels lol. Plus, you will get better traction, and accelleration, and you will get better launches!

    its definately worth the extra money

    You can "burnout" both tires without LSD. <_<

    And if you don't drive hard, you won't really be able to tell you even have it.

    Yes, you can burnout without an lsd, only one tire spins by itself because you are using an openslip differential.

    With an LSD, your Frontwheel drive car will corner much better cause BOTH of your fronwheels will be given power, not just one.

    You're a dumbass, LSD or not BOTH of your tires spin. An LSD transfers power to the one that needs it, but it isn't the reason they both spin.
