    Well I have now a Civic DX Hatchie! :D Right now it has a D15B non V-tec. And it is sitting on EP3 stock rims! Planning to put a B16a into it. I need some advice! Been seaching thru the forums recently and have found alot of things I can do. What would i really have to do if I'm going to swap the B16a into it? I know i gotta convert the OBD0 to an OBD1. Anything else? Throw in tips, comments, ANYTHING! That would help! Tell me what you guys/gals think! Its not in the best shape/body of the world but it works. Will be fix later on.

    first of all i heart EP3 wheels on ef's!!!!! i kind of miss mine! b16 is def a good choice for these cars... makes them a lot more fun to drive and its a pretty easy swap. you dont necessarily have to upgrade to obd1 if you can find an obd-0 b16a like i got. other than that you dont have much to worry about... b series axles will plug right into your knuckles, bang out the drivers side frame a little to make clearance for the alternator and wire up the vtec. might also want to look into doing a rear disc brake conversion with a DA distribution block to help the brakes make up for the extra weight.

    Very NICE! Now I'm going to start looking into a B16a OBD-0! Less work to me. :D But I really want to know like what is the difference between OBD-0 and OBD-1? I read the thread like the differences but really doesn't cut it. I just want a simple explanation instead of reading the whole book (i call it book since its a long page) Thanks for the info! Keep em' COMMING!!!^_^
