What will fit into my 2002 Civic LX

    I was wondering, what will fit into my 2002 Honda Civic LX 2 door? I have seen some B16A's in there, but I was wondering about the K20A series, if they would fit, and would it be worth it (not price of initial motor, just the swap itself) or would the B18C series be the way to go? Any help is appreciated.

    b-series are still the easiest swap...

    k-series motors are quite expensive and as of right now there aren't any mounts made specifically for this swap...meaning you would have to fabricate your own.

    overall, it would be expensive, much more expensive compared to even a jdm itr swap.

    wooooooh no...

    b-series are NOT the easiest for a 2002!!!!
    Chet, read the title man!!!

    K-series are wicked expensive though,

    Brian- B series into a 7G is still pretty easy- just not legal in most places.

    :D

    brian, obd issues can be solved with a wiring conversion harness.

    and the engines in dohc-vtec 2001+ civics are still mounted in the traditional way.

    therefore, to bolt in a b-series motor, you need mounts, shift linkage and a wiring conversion harness.

    the question is why would you want to take a nice daily driver and put a motor swap in it. its my feeling that newer civics are just not made as well compared to the 5th and 6th gens. proof is in the new mcpherson struts and various other adjustments honda has made to their newest cars.

    In Canada, so most anything is legal :D. I was wondering about the K20A2 mostly, and thanks for the help so far.

    Nope. The K20 has been dropped into a 6th gen Civic (96-00), and B series engines have been put into 7th gen Civics also. If something will fit in the 2002 LX, it will also fit in any other 2001+ Civic coupe or sedan.
