Hi! :)
SORRY! I men the 1992-1995 engines! B15 and B16 I think.!!
I have a Civic with 1.5l 90HP and got a 1.6l 125HP Vtec engine with transmission + Ecu ! Now my question, can i swap the motor 1:1 ? What do I need new? Or can i deduce those 2 machines?
Thx for all information!!

Felix from germany :lol:
 
the only thing that will realy be tough (and it is fairly simple) you will have to wire for VTEC.

Why spend many hours to swap harnesses when it takes under 2 hours to change all the wires that you need to change.
 
umm, swapping a harness with the motor in the car takes only a few hours. When the motor is out of the car it take almost no time at all.

MOTOR harness is easy- the DASH is not- and guess where the VTEC wires lie-- in both. have fun re-wiring your dome light, your radio, your CEL, your spedo lighs, your glove box light, blah blah, or add 3 wires.
your choice.
