    Ok, so im about to buy a 95 Civic EX, and im for sure going to do a motor swap. The question is, what motor should i use? If any, will i run into problems putting a certain motor in etc... The motors im looking into are,

    B18C 96-97 (TypeR)
    B18C 96-00 (TypeR)
    B18C (GSR)
    H22A 92-95

    Just asking you guys opinion, because you obviously know more about this shit than me.. Thanks

    well i'm going to ask the obvious question-

    what are you looking for in the car? straight line performance? a boost candidate? a road race car?

    that will make it easier to decide what you might want to swap

    well, if i get a b18c, i doubt ill be adding a turbo any time soon. As for what im looking for, im going for performance, and a semi daily driver. In which case i do have another car. Thanks again

    personally i favor the b18c1


    less expensive than the type r and quite nice for around town driving without getting groceries at 8200 rpm

    h22a could be fun if you just want a quick car for around town, but it's not the easiest swap and will require some suspension work

    depending on what type of racing you plan to do with the car i would lean more twards the B18C (GSR)
    great base to start with
    lots of potential

    the ITR engine is great ... but its a waste unless you plan to road course with it IMHO
