just out of curiosity, would a h22 or h20 engine fit into a civic ej6, and if so home much work will have to be done
whats a H20???.. h22 does fit, custom mounts, shafts, gearlinkages and vtec loom.. alot harder a swap than a b-series

i havnt got a clue about preludes, lol,

a H22 doesnt pack that more punch then a B18 with easy mods, much easier to fit.

The H22 also doesnt wieght that much more then a B18, so ive been told anyway.

What! They are fuckin huge, reading about other peoples h22 coup's they have a tendency to try and kill you. They are only good if you want a good bit of torque. Horrible engine in my eyes

Hi same with me here really. I decided I want to get the most power into my 98 Honda Civic Coupe so what Engines would you suggest? I was looking to add a y8 head onto the y7 engine but that will increase the power by roughly 20bhp. Any suggestions? :thumbup:

Hi,

Ive a 99 civic EJ9 manual (prefacelift) and ive spotted a D15B engine from a imported CRX but with auto gear box.
the engine comes with ecu, auto gearbox, drive shaft ( not sure if theres loom or not)
got a few question below that needs help with:

1, can my old EJ9 gearbox bolt onto the new D15B engine?
2, Can i use my old EJ9 Loom?
3, do i need to worry about immobiliser?
4, After reading the whole thread, i reckon the engine mounts are the same for D14 and D15, am i correct?

reason i want to do this is because i just want a little bit of vtec fun while keeping a good mpg.

Cheers :thumbup:

Hi there, after searching this site and google, ive found a lot of information, but i wanted to ask, I want to change the D15z6 from my EK3 to a B18C. First thing, will the type r engine fit? Also, what do i need to change along with the engine?
If theres a guide that tells me about that engine swap that i have missed, could somebody point me to it please?

Thanks, James

Apologies if this has been answered but there is far too much on here to sift through for such a small bit of info :L I've got an EG3...looking at B16a2 or b18c4 to go in soon, I'm getting a garage to do the swap as I don't have the time or space and I kinda want the reciept.

So obviously don't wanna give them the car and engine and find out mid way through the swap that I'm a few bits short and have to wait for them to be ordered in and cost me more money. So obviously engine, gearbox and vtec loom to go with. But what about ECU and driveshafts etc? What bits that are already on the EG can I expect them to use? Cheers :D
