    first off you should check what type of engine is actually in your car.
    if it is still the stock engine and it is vtec then it's a D16 which is sohc and not a B16 which is dohc

    go to the garage and take a peak, if the spark plug wires run down the back of the valve cover and are exposed then its a D engine, if they are in a chanel down the center of the valve cover then it's a B

    well, he said it is a B16A2 so i'm sure he knows what he's talking about. as for the block swap, all you need is the block, everything you have will mount to it, use your existing wire harness you can get a new ecu, or get your current one chipped with ITR specs.

    :ditto:

    you will basically need all gaskets, head bolts (apr's good), timing belt & accessories, water pump etc.

    since you'll have the block out you should beef it up and up the compression if you're planning to go na.

    yeah, all you need is the block, I would always change these parts if my motor is apart (water pump, timing belt, new gaskets, new bolts for the head)

    yea, you dont even need to pull the tranny. just one motor mount on the driver's side by the timing belt cover. pull the head, put it on the itr block and put it back in the car. and ur done.

    sorry, didn't mean to insult you. I guess when I read the topic and it had the question marks after the b16a2 it made it seem like you didn't know if it was a b16 or not, and since there is a sohc vtec that was in some 94's I guess that was the track I was on when I replied

    I get a little messed up at work too, lack of sleep, to much coffee, and staring at a computer screen and saying "sure boss" starts you thinking crazy things

    didn't mean to be a dick

    good luck with the block swap, I'd like to hear how it goes once you are done. I might do that a year or so down the road as well.

    edit: it was partially the "noob" under your name that lead me to believe you might not know what you are talking about as well :newbie: jk

    will the type r engine respond aswell as it does in the type r itself i mean for example the type r will have a better transmission lighter flywheel etc.although someone told me that after he finished with his conversion his civic with the typer engine was hitting 0-60mph in sub 6 secs could that be right as the actual type r only does it in 6.7 secs?? ;)
