B18A = cable tranny, OBD-0
93 Civic = hydro tranny, OBD-1
aside from legal issues of swapping in a motor older than the car ... it will be a pain in the ass switching the tranny and OBD shit around... just get a OBD-1 B18B
Someone offered a 90-93 b18a motor to me for 300 (no trans). Would it be worth it to buy it for a swap. It would go in to a 92 ex. That seems like a good price but judging from the response to the last question i'm having doubts.
please start your own tread for your question next time.....
you will need to buy a B series hydro tranny and im pretty sure you will still have OBD issues... if the motor is in good condition with low miles it might be worth the trouble ... otherwise id still say get an OBD-1 B18B
your harness will not plug into that ECU, im pretty sure the engines harness wont plug into the cars harness, and im not sure but i dont think there is a harness converter for OBD-1 to OBD-0 so you would need to swap out the entire harness in the car (id rather have my teeth bashed out with a brick)
get an OBD-1 engine
this is a complete swap. as in complete motor and complete tranny linkage and mounts ecu and wiring harness for 150 dollars from my buddy steve it has 135000 miles on the motor which will be completely rebuilt. is it worth the trouble
The 90-91 LS is obd0
The 92-93 LS is obd1
So u will b able to drop it in using stock wiring i believe, but u will need to get a tranny from a 92+, and im not sure if they bolt up to the 90-93 LS engine.
