    I swapped a B18C (GSR) engine into my 95 Civic coupe and I didn't upgrade the battery from the old engine (the D16). And now am having my lights dim and other such issues.

    Do I need to get a bigger battery for the new engine? Or maybe my battery is just losing power?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

    X2. check your alternator since that's the only thing that has changed in the charging system.
