Hello all, i'm new to this site and wondered if anyone knew anything about engine swaps for a 1997 EK4 civic hatchback??
Its been my project for a few months now and so far its been completly stripped out and am in the process of prepping it to be sprayed..
after that i will then be looking to swap the 1.5 non vtec lump for something with a little more grunt.. i dont have a massive budget but can do all the work myself..
Can anyone help and tell me what engines can go into it??? i understand the integra type r will but there very expensive?? any help or ideas would be much appreciated!!!
Thankyou

Any of the Honda range will fit, B series, D series, K series and H series. It all depends on how much work you want to do to get them to fit ;)

All engines from B and D series will fit straight in. For K and H series you need special mounts and a lot of money

You will need complete engine with the gearbox and the engine mounts, ECU, wiring loom, driveshafts and gearshift linkage.

Well it depends how much money you want to spend. B18C6 is the best you can get but the price will be around 2000 pounds. The cheapest one is B18C4 from civic VTI mb6. You can get also B16B from Civic Type-R EK9 but it is very rare

:p As far as I know it comes in black from the factory but you know how easy is to paint the cam cover so it is a matter of choice basically.

I have a 93 hatch also with a D16Z6 and im looking to do a B18 swap. Do you know anywere i can get a B series motor, and my D16 has a bad knock but i cant tell if it serious or just a valve or something, if you do engine work or was looking to do a rebuild, i could take it out a sell it to you cheap, the guy i bought it off a few weeks ago claimed it only had 70k on the engine and 114k on the body. Just let me know and any help would be sweet.
