    I have a 92 civic hb dx and want to power it up and was wondering whats

    the best and least costly way. my freind has a 91 ls interga that I can take

    what ever I want but I was wondering if its better to get a b16a,but if I do

    go with the ls how much will it cost me to do the swap i have never swaped

    a engine better, but know my way around. SO WHAT DO YOU GUY THING I

    SHOULD DO.

    wont a 91 motor be non-OBD? 92 HB is OBD1.


    LS is cheaper and easier, better for daily driving

    B16a better for racing :ph34r:


    either motor is good just depends on wether you want torque or hi-reving VTEC HP :spin:

    word, just take the B18B, you can always add vtec later when you get more beans. The OBD matter isn't a problem.

    i would say get the swap from your friend , sell the cable trans, buy a hydro trans and put it in your ride. then save up some $$$ and put a vtec head on the block you will bew happy
