    This is my first civic but I'm very mechanically inclined and do all my own work.
    It's a 95 2dr with d15 motor with a blown headgasket.

    Ok I want to do an easy cheap swap $200-$800 budget.

    Whats a quick rundown on swaps for like a Head swap or full swap?

    So far my research shown D15 with D16 vtec head swap. or full D16 swap.
    Anything else I can do with that budget?

    If you look hard enough, you may be able to find a B18 swap; I have a couple friends who were able to find them for around $500.

    Simply fixing the blown head gasket would be cheapest, of course(assuming nothing is warped).

    I decided to do a B16 swap instead almost did a D16y8 I got that motor first but I'm selling it now. and got a great deal on a full B16 swap for nearly the same price from a friend of mine.
