    I personally like stripyards because you can see what your buying and usually get I better price,plus you can take everything to make sure you get the whole swap.If you want a b18b look for a 94-95 teg,same obd as your car.Or if you can only find a 96-00 then get that and I'm sure the wiring will be worth it.

    yeh i just recently got a motor from jspecauto.com, I ordered it last week,and it should be here soon. It $1300 for the engine plus $350 for shipping, and $75 extra for the shift linkage.... so it came to a total of $1825..... AND IT BETTER BE WORTH EVER PENNY, OR ILL BE REALLY PISSED :angry:

    Depending on what you got and what your putting it into,you should be pretty impressed.

    Its not difficult to run 12's on a stock ls with a bolt on turbo kit. Ive seen it done tons of times. Show me a n/a gsr that will run 12's for anywhere near the amount of money of a ls and a turbo kit.

    jdm92hb, if you have any questions regarding the obd2 ls swap into the obd1 civic, pm me...ive done the exact same swap 3 weeks ago.

    What Turbo kit do you guys recommend I was thinking about the fmax kit but I dont really like secondary injectors, the drag kit doesnt look like it is of the highest quality, anyone know of a kit that is just turbo, header, piping, intercooler. and I can add the fuel seperate? I want a turbo that will give me reliable low 13's possibly high 12's with the usual bolt ons and full exhaust, I was thinking of running the hondata ecu. This is a daily driven car though so I dont want a turbo so huge I get massive turbo lag.
