    i have a 95 cx eg and i swap a b18a1 motor into it and its running really shitty. i am using mobile1 motor oil and honda manual tranmission fluid and pumping premium fuel, rite now im still using the obd0 intake manifold. my car keeps dying whenever i let go of the gas and let it roll on nuetral and sometimes it will die when i put my foot on the clutch. it is also lagging power and torque, also when i drive it will bog and choke mostly on high way. if u have any suggestions for me please let me know as soon as u can thanks for your time.

    You are going to have to seek out a shop near you. Check online and find a reputable shop to do your tuning.

    Check the basics first. I had similar problems when I finished up my d15b vtec swap, and then I found out I had like 4 or 5 blown fuses.

    I would personally make sure there is an obd1 IM/TB as well as an obd1 distributor IF your harness/ecu is setup for obd1.

    All of that stuff should be mandatory for a motor swap anyway. You don't know when the maintenance was last done on a swap motor, so why wouldn't you give it a tune up while you have the chance?

    A timing belt and water pump wouldn't be a bad idea either. That way you know for certain the last time it was done...

    honestly, it sounds like a air/fuel ratio problem to me which means take it to a tuning shop unless you have a ecu management system and know what your doing.

    also, changing the plugs wouldnt be a bad idea..
