    i am from the uk and have wanted for ages to drop a b18c engine into my 92 hatch. The only problem is i have searched for ages trying to find a company here that will supply me with everything (like the places in the states) i need to complete it properly. The problem is that there is nobody like that! So it looks like i am going to have to get the parts seperatly! Can somebody tell me exactly what i will need please, as i want to start collecting the pieces as soon as possible! My car is a 92 civic 1.5 lsi hatchback.
    Many thanks!

    yeah but the 1.8l civic vti with the b18c4 is a 5door version made in UK. it is pretty heavy don´t remember how heavy but 0-60 time is about 8,4 so it´s slower then the 1.6vti. and it breaks down more often it just isn´t as good as it´s brother the japan manufactured honda.
