    I want to swap a B16A2 from a 99 Si into my 99 EX coupe. I have read this is the easiest swap for my car, is this true? What will I need to do the swap? Can I use the stock harness and ECU or would it make more sense to switch to the Si harness and ECU? My car is also an automatic and I want to switch it over to 5-speed. I know this also makes it a little more difficult but it needs to be done. What parts do I need to do the swap? I have also read the latest SCC magazine and in the back it has sections on turbocharging. With my stock D16Y8 engine I can make a Turbonetics claimed 225 HP at the wheels! With the B16 swap and a turbo kit from Turbonetics I can make a claimed 250 corrected flywheel HP, which i believe is lower at the wheels. Both HP's are made on 8psi of boost, and both kits cost the same price. Would I be better off staying with the stock engine and t/c it or should I still do the swap and than t/c the engine? I know the rod ratio of the B16 is much better than my D16, would that make a huge difference in my engine lasting in the long run? I am not going to be going over that HP amount (at least in the forseeable future), so would I be safe with the stock engine. Any help would be greatful.

    well if u goona swap the b16 in and do the at>mt conversion you would have to change the cluster over to an ex without the display of what gear its in anyways also if u gonna swap the b16 you have to use the si computer and wiring harness because your stock computer only hits vtec in third and opens at 5500 and revs at 7500 rpm and the si ecu opens vtec every gear and vtev opens at 4700 and revs to 9000rpms but if u boost the single cam youll have to build it up so it can stand up aginst the boost and horespeower levels your gonna throw on it and youll have to swap your tranny anyways to a manual and find stronger axles and it will cost more to boost the single cam but if u stay wit the b series all you do is throw in a block guard and a girdle wit some low compression pistons and piston rings wit a metal head gasket and a stage three clutch and flywheel youl be straight itll cost the same but youl be more reliable and youll sleep easier knowin you dont have to worry about blowin a head gasket

    civic swap

    Hi guys, i need some advise. I currently own a 2000 Civic Si (Ex in USA) with a stock D16y8 engine (1.6L sohc vtec 127hp). I want more power and i dont know what would be the best choice for a swap. Should i go for H series like an H22 or should i go for B series like a B18 or a B16A ? Should i even go for the K series like a K20 ? I would like some advises and i dont want to pay too much for the engine and the installation (5000 max). So what would be the best choice regarding power and price ? Thanks !

    First thing I'd do is post this as a new thread,then list your goals, budget, and if it a daily driver or weekend racer.You'll get a better response.
