    Engine Swap Resources Thread - Under Construction

    I've gotten tired of seeing a thousand engine swap threads. Going to make another resource sticky. Post useful links/DIYs/other threads here and in a couple weeks I'll compile it down into one post.

    i have something to add.. on the b16 you need 3 new mounts if you have a DX The rear, The front transmission mount, and the AC/compressor mount ( if the engine dosnt have one alreadly) I found it out the hard way. IT also reqires alot of Wiring modificiation if you are using the sensors on the motor. Not all of the Conversion harnesses are correct so be sure to check your pin out sheet wich you can find at HybridGarage.com I had great problems getting some of the sensors rewired to where they would work properly.

    it is also to do engine transmission combos. I have a 2000 B16 head on an 89 Crx block rehoned With a GSR hydrolic trans so mabey thats why i had the problems i did . i had to convert the engine to obd2 instead of the obd0. but you still need the 2 mounts

    Hi, does bolt in swap mean it doesnt need transmission changing?
    it doesnt mention anything regarding transmission for some of these swaps, does that mean its not necessary?
    and also does wiring harness modification mean that the whole loom/harness will need to be changed or just amended where necessary?

    Im wantin so put a b16a2 in place of a D16y8 in my 97 civ coupe, and according to this the only thing that will need changin is the engine, mounts and harness, is this correct? or will transmission also need changin as the engine revs 1000rpm more than the current one.

    would really appreciate any info, sorry for the newbie question, not had much luck at all.

    thanks again and apologies in advance.

    A "bolt in" swap means the entire drivetrain will bolt into the host chassis without modification.

    It does not mean that the host car's transmission can be reused.

    You will need the Y80 / S80 transmission in order to complete your B16A2 swap.
    The stock D-series transmission will not mate to the B16A2 block.

    Finally an answer i can use, really appreciate it. One last things not to get on any nerves, where can i get info about what modifcations need to be made to the wiring harness? as stated in the guide?

    does this mean switching ecu's or just modifying the current one, as the donor car also has the ecu with it but dont know if current wiring will work.

    Thanks.

    yes it is

    but not worth it IMO
    depending on where you live, it may be an illegal swap.
    older engine in a newer shell is a in most states

    just buy yourself a "b18b1" and save yourself the headache

    well if you have a b18a1 it isn't from a 94 integra....sooooo you have a mythical engine. Use magic level 5 to insert motor into Mage level 2 flying best attack.

    im running a 95 civic LX, and i wanna swap an LS/Vtec in it. my question is if this could handle respectable amounts of boost... 14+psi? also does anyone know of anyone who has a 92-00 with an s2000 swap? if not i might consider being the first. could be iffy though

    Clutch options for Tranny

    This is my first post on HAN.

    If you were swapping a B18B1 into an EG, but wanted to install a B16A/B16B Tranny, would you run the B18 Clutch or B16 Clutch?

    Cheapest Motor Swap

    I've have a 98 civic LX with no motor and was wondering what the other D-series options I have are that would bolt right in using the same everything like transmission and what not. For example would a D15B8 fit? I could understand changing the intake manifold so OBDII wouldn't be affected, but I am broke and need to get this running asap for as cheap as possible and was wondering what my options are so I can find a cheap motor and throw it in. Thanks in advance!

    I'm new to the forum. I've got a ek, and the motor threw a rod. I'm in the process of removing the old egine. My host tranny I know is good. The donor motor I purchased came with a tranny and removed it from the donor motor. My question is can I pull the blown motor without pulling the transmission out of the car replace it with "newer" motor?
