Bored? Bench Build my Civic. 56K if your crazy.

Well I got bit by the " I need another car" bug again. Its a problem i run into more often than I should, but what can i say, I prefer Quantity over Quality. For those keeping a running total at home, this is vehicle number 5

Id been looking for something small to build for a while, and I ran across this 91 civic on craigslist for $350. The body is straight and rust free, which is all I really cared about. The motor is blown. Still, I could sell the wheels for $100, the aftermarket head unit for $75 and scrap the car for $225 so I couldn't help but look at the whole deal as a free $50 for me. Yes, I realize that I am insane.

ROFLMAO. Yes i noticed that as well!! I forgot to mention that. Thats a 3" elbow that will fit very nicely in my other legend. Thats another $30 right there. Liking this car more by the hour.

Actually though, Don't I remember you being pretty familiar with swap options for this car? Or was that someone else? What other junkyard (so b16b is out) options do I have for this car besides a B18?

you could go h22 but b18 would be better route overall

k20 would fit with some work on the frame I think you have to redo the mounts.

but over all b18c1 but its gonna cost a grip but would be best bet as a drop in.

Im pretty sure you can also drop a doch ZC short block in it but don't quote me on that. is it an auto?

the B20b is good on gas. but only has like 130 hp. and its tall and wouldn't fit under the civic

any d series will fit.

Thanks. what did the b18c come in? Which one was in the early integras b18b? I want a V-tech. Just because. My projects are all about total finished cost. Both my legends together cost me less than $5k combined when i was finished, And with $350 in this car, and it needing paint, Im setting first phase limit of $1500. So the deciding factors in motor will really be what my local pick n pull has.

If you look in the sides of pic 2 and 3.. you can see my 87 Tbird with a built 5.0 HO and built AOD trans... I kind of hate that car... I may have to learn to weld just so i can have a 5.0 civic.. Of course this means i will have to take out the front seats and sit in the back seat.. but i can live with that.

The B18C1 is the integra gsr motor with vtec
The B18C5 is the integra type r with vtec
All other B18 are non vtec
The B16A is the civic vtec motor.
Any of these would work.

Alright guys i checked the Wiki but it is sooo confusing since all the countries are listed together. Locally i've found a few D16A1s for less than $100. Will that mate to the auto transmission i have?

Also there is this ad on craigslist near me... Seems like a hell of a deal, but id still near to get a harness, is that right?

acura swap parts?

Oh, don't worry. I have the same problem. Always buying something I don't need. That was a nice find though. GL with it!

I'd go JDM B16A1. I do believe that there is a resistor box that you'd have to rewire, as well as add a couple add'l wires. I did this swap about 10 years ago, so please forgive me. Best part of the JDM B16A1 is that the trannys come w/an LSD
