    I'm thinking of pulling a b18 out of an integra from the local junkyard, but its my first swap so i dont know what all to get when i pull the motor? Or should i just wait save $ to buy a b16?

    I'm almost finished up with my first swap: D15B Vtec into my '93 Civic Ferio and I bought my complete swap with motor, trans, and ecu from Specializing in JDM-USDM Engines & Parts...hmotorsonline.com . I highly recommend them my motor is like new.

    And if you DO get the b16 you'll have to buy the shift linkage and axles to go with it, and you might have to wire up vtec.

    I would never get anything that goes under the hood from a junkyard but that's just me there's plenty who do it without problems. Just make sure if you DO get that junkyard swap you get the motor, tranny, ecu, and that all the sensors are intact and functional. Does it start? Run?

    Yea the H22 will fit with some modification...it's heavy tho. I'd say for a quicker and much easier swap go with any B-series you want. If that's a working GSR motor for $100 you better jump on that shit.

    Don't go for the h22 it is a taller, heavier motor and it comprimises handling. I would suggest going with the b18 like you were talking about.

    Shit I'd suggest you be a hustler and buy that GSR for $100, clean it up and paint the valve cover, and sell it to someone on here for $300+ :D.

    they do for sure. I had to redo my front calipers and didn't have the money to buy all new ones so I bought new gaskets and just went out and found a set on a civic in a junkyard. The whole thing coasted me like $40, thats including $20 for new pads. versus what it would have cost for new calipers, they work like they are new anyways. I had also planned on grabbing myself a y8 head but had to wait a couple days til I got paid again and went back and someone had already taken the head. :-( oh well. But for sure buy that B18, and keep that for your swap. Husstle the H22, and any other decent motors you can find in that place.

    that they might... but not in my local area, junkyards here are communist bastards..... they tend to know what they got, and also Hondas dont last to long in our yards cus ppl like me scope them on a weekly basis

    Junkyards around here are lazy. I walked in and asked about 92-95 honda civics and they told me "The door's right there you can start lookin". I walked out and here I am standing in front of miles and miles of wreckage...took me an hour to find the civic with the fuel pump relay I needed. Then I walked all the way back and got the 10mm wrench to remove it lol.
