Why do you have a DX motor in a EX? Swap in a D16Z6, the motor that is supposed to go in there. Or swap a B series, opr boost, or supercharge, or n20, or.....figure out what route you want to go.

B series swaps are basicallty the same as D series swaps, as the CIvics have B series in them in the rest of the world. As far as what's the best one, that would be determined by you budget, and end result. B16A being the cheapest B18C5 being the most expensive.

umm actually dude if you want more power then a D16Z6...tell you the truth check this website out first (turboD16.com) its a forum like this there are some mean ass EX's on there one beat a boosted prelude and a 5.0 mustang..the SOHC are ALOT cheaper then B-series and you will most likely have to change axles if you go to a B-series..my opinion...go with a D16Z6 and turbo it..thats what I am doing

wtf is a long block motor .........what does this refer 2
[post=511238]Quoted post[/post]​

Longblock = head, block and oil pan, sometimes it willcome with the intake manifold, exhuast manifold, and the accessories, sometimes not, depends on the seller.

just some info you might want to know d and b are not compatable so if you have your heart set on the crap tranny stick with a d and booooost the shit out of it and the b18(ls) would be the cheapest b to go with
B16A being the cheapest B18C5 being the most expensive.

B18A1 would be the cheapest to buy, BUT since it has a cable clutch, you can tack on either a conversion kit, or a hydraulic transmission, and if you happen to find an OBD 0 one plan on either paying more for OBD I parts, or a huge aspirin bill from the wiring headache. B18B LS motors generally run the same price as the B16A, adn since I see a lot more people going 1.8 the price of a second hand B16A is on average lower :)
