    im about to order a jdm b18c motor obd1, and swap it into a 94 hatch cx... i was wondering what problems i would run into since the jdm motor is from a RHD car... like wiring is it all going to be the same as if i got a usdm motor? if not then what are teh differences and troubles that i should look for.... and what about power steering and a/c is it impossible to keep them if i get the JDM motor (ill probably lose them for the extra power and less weight but damn its hot in the summer haha)... any suggestions? thanks

    you can use everything you had. youll have to use your old engine harness and add the appropriate wires.

    Yip,it will be easy as long as you have everything (axles,ecu,shiftlinkage,mounts and motor,trannt of course) and then run the vtec wires.

    Yes, the engines are, but the wiring harnesses aren't. A RHD harness will be backwards from a LHD harness.
