    You're going to need a bigass bag of fuckin' zipties, and the 'search' function of this website.


    Oh, and a DIET COKE!!!!

    the B18B is not a GSR engine... it is an LS engine

    if you were sold a GSR then you got ripped off

    it only has 1 head not multiple headS

    and based on your screen name you have a 6th gen civic... not that that is ever a reliable way of knowing what the hell a person has... if thats not the car you are swapping then we have no way of knowing what gen it is because you never said what you plan to put the engine into

    you will definitely need a big bag of zipties
    and the search function will be helpful as this has been covered in detail multiple times
    :search:

    dont know about the Diet Coke... but my swap would not have been possible without Ranch Pringles

    but without knowing what the hell you have or what you are trying to put it in to im not too sure there is any hope for you pulling this swap off at this point

    Just look up "EK B-series" swap. Simply put, you'd be using many 99-00 Si parts.

    It's "drop in"; as long as you have all the right mounts, axles, etc.

    The engine in your GSR is a B18C1. No they aren't a pain ...to me, but it might be a pain to you. If you are mechanically inclined, and are not afraid to learn it will be pretty straight forward. I would recommend trying to find someone local that has done a swap before.

    Oh, and get the manuals for BOTH the cars, preferably the Helms manuals, but a Haynes or Chiltons can save your butt.

    Yes. Treat it like a regular GSR swap.
