HI.

I own a 1995 black civic coupe 15iLX. The usal.....bodykit, spoiler, 17"alloys, induction, strut brace and koni adjustable suspension (very solid ride).
Its very similar looking to the 1 in the F&F film they use to "jack" the trucks exept without the green neon glows, i will upload pics over the weekend for all 2 c.

However i am looking to change the 1.5 engine to a 1.6 v-tec but dont know much about the details. I dont know if the mounting would be the same, slighty out or way off. Also i take it the gearbox will have to be changed and also the ECU loom??? but again i dont know if the sensor conections will be the same or different.
If any1 no's any infomation on this or having done a job like this before it would but very helpful and much appreciated.

Thanks.

best bet is to get a donor car that you can get the ecu, and wiring etc out of aswell ..
im 90% sure you will need new mounts. Id also get new brakes etc, which im not sure if you will need new driveshafts etc.. im not to hot with engines.

But yeh i'd get a donor car so you have everything you need..

try the 1.8 vtec civic aerodeck. CRXHUGH on here has used that for a swap and it went really well, however that was into an EK which is a closer shape than your Ej
