hi all,
i have a 1994 civic dx hatchback, broke down over the weekend and found out that i need a new distributor and head gasket, so therefore id rather use that money towards a new engine, as i have wanted to upgrade to a bigger engine at some point.

i have been offered a b16a2 engine and was wondering how easy this is to fit into my car? and what parts do i need for the full conversion? gearbox etc?

any help would be very much appreciated.thanks

mm you will need alot, gearbox, driveshafts intake mani/exhuast mani, mounts, new rad, ecu, loom, etc etc etc
what year was the car the b16a2 is coming out of? coz that matters too!

well lets forget the b16a2 now, i have been offered a b16a now, which comes from a 1994 car. which is the same year as mine. it comes with the engine,gearbox,ecu,loom, shafts and suspension. so would this be easier as its from the same year car as mine?

depends how much and the mileage...now a days you can pick up a complete car with that engine for the same price as the engine alone

the b16a has done around 70k, i would buy a doner car,but i have limited funds, im getting the whole lot fitted for 350 and the engine and gearbox etc is costing 650. so would it be a hard swap or not?
