    Easy swap.
    Get the whole swap (motor, trans, alt, dizzy, ecu, axles, shiftlinkage)
    Your '95 civic....is it an EX, DX, etc???

    You should use the harness in the car or go buy a D16Z6 harness.
    Check out my signature link for pics on my swap (its almost the same as a GSR)
    Search the forum for FAQ's about the swap

    You need to run VTEC to the ECU (if your car is non-vtec now) and a knock sensor
    (or run a chipped p28, etc to eliminate need for knock sensor)

    You can use the harness on that d16b7 but you'll use the clips for VTEC and VTEC oil
    pressure on the GSR swap harness. Just run lines from these clips through the firewall and
    to the ECU (and the knock sensor too) These all get plugged into the ECU with the OEM
    clips that go into the plugs that actually clip into the ECU (get the donor pins/plugs at a
    junk yard right at the ECU plugs...just give yourself some wire and chop them out)

    GSR mounts are good enough and Hasport works.....
    just a little stiff for my taste (and current hp lol)

    hmotorsonline.com are honest. I bought stuff from them
    Depends on the state you live in to where you can/should go

    JDM B18C is about 180 crank hp and around 130 trq

    I would get OEM dizzy cap, rotor, valve cover gasket (after you check valves)
    timing belt, water pump
    (or at least look at them all and see what needs to be replaced)

    a GOOD header will get you around 12-15hp
    Exhaust and intake amybe another 10hp
    and nice stage two clutch/resurface the flywheel/OEM throw out bearing

    You can do the swap but it'll be close to the $4K mark after you replace stuff and all that

    We have reputable importers that post their prices/inventory in our for sale section. Why the fuck does no one ever look there?
