Howdy, I have a 96 civic EX with the original D16Y8 and i plan to swap a B18C1 myself. I have some general mechanical knowledge and am getting help from a mechanic-in-training friend. I was curious as to a couple things:

1. Will it be a complete bolt on and plug and play install? If not, what will I need to do to make it work?

2. When looking to order a swap, what parts should I need included in order to make the complete swap?

3. I know it's been asked a billion times before, but where can a get a CLEAN, reliable, complete swap?

yeah just get a obd2 gsr, preferably a 96-98....most of all of it is plug and play, you got your IAB and the rear drag mount.
