New guy here, My son and I going to swap a B16-1 motor into my son's 94 Civic Ex coupe, which currently has the 1.6 manual setup.The donor car is a 1993 Civic 4 dr that has the B16-1 manual swapped into it.The 4 dr's body is poor shape, but the drive train is great and runs super.Is this a straight forward swap, and any helpful info would be greatly appreciated. ie: computer, trans,axles, etc..
lastly, the B16 has a old header on it too, and we want to install a new one. Are they pretty easy to come by? Summit racing shows a DC Sports series header, but not sure if they have a application for this setup.
Thanks, Ed


I wanna be sedated
If you're pulling it out of a 93, it should have everything needed to swap it into the 94 as they are the same platform. For a header, you need to get one for a 94-97 DelSol vtec model (comes with a B16A3), or a 99-00 Si.
