    what year is the 1.3 civic. If it is a 92-95 it would be no problem (yours is a 92-95 right) It would basicly be a bolt up swap.

    That's funny because that is exactly what I did.As long as it is a 92-95 it is,and then they will have a vtec yippeee!!!

    i dont think that any 5th gens came with carbs, some one correct me if i am wrong. You will have to change the wiring for the o2 sensor and also run a few wires for vtec. He also needs your ecu

    I've seen a carbed 5th gen here.It was the 1.3 but it may have been swapped in,it didn't look right.It is also the only one I've seen from that gen.
