The B20a engine available in a CR-V can be transferred into a Honda Civic. The Civic will require special mounts, harness, and computer to accommodate the larger engine.

With the stock Civic engine, no. If you swap the Accord engine in, yes. The swap involves notching or bashing in your frame rails or machining the crank pulley and a myriad of other things however. No

A 1997 Honda Civic has a lightweight frame and it's chassis allows for the easy swap of a B-series engine. Any VTEC powered B-series will add a large boost of power and drive ability.

Nothing, go buy a Chevy and put a Corvette engine in it.

You can only swap an engine of a Civic Hatchback with an engine of a newer car. Its only legal to swap in engines of the same or newer OBD series. So the Civic engine you swap with has to be a 94 or newer but any of those engines will fit.

To swap a larger b18b1 engine into a 1994 Honda Civic the appropriate supplies must be bought and installed. The car will need axles, a wire harness, computer, transmission, and custom motor mounts.

check the codes and see what comes up, that'd be where i start...

the most powerful stock engine to ever come stock in a civic was probably the civic type r engine, but that was only available in the European market. however, many people swap in ITR motors, H22's, and JDM SiR motors for more power.

No they will not. It requires a lot of modification and the final result with not look good.

you can swap it with 96-2000 Honda civics and the si

If the tires are the same size then yes.

Yes, with custom mounts available online. You will need the complete swap.

No, they are different. Out of curiousity why would you want to? I could understand the opposite though.

It's possible to swap in a B20 series motor from a 3rd gen Prelude to a 5th gen Civic. However, it would be more practical (and easier to swap in) a D-series motor which there are multiple variants for the Civic between the late '80s into the '90s.

Yes of course you can, but it isn't easy doing such a swap.

This all depends on which 16 valve engine you swap in (Honda has made dozens of them). In short though the fuel rail should be fine (and are fairly universal among Honda civics). If you swap in for another single cam motor (D-series) around the same year then your current computer will run the car, but just get an ecu to match the motor from a local junk yard if you want it to run perfect.

Yes, with custom mounts available for purchase online. In order for it to fit you will need the complete swap.

Because that SOHC Aint cutting it nomore and your Civic is wanting you 2 B16 motor swap it!! :)

you want a v6 or v8 buy a muscle car. look up B16 swaps there fairly cheap and reliable.

1 word my negro, b17, it is a engine out of a 1991-1993 integra gsr makes 160 ponies which is atleast 45 more than your making stock

Yes it will but unlike other B series swaps it's not a straight swap. All the swap details can be found on

It will probably be more work than it's worth. The computers aren't compatable.

The short answer is "Yes". However, the swap in question is not an easy one for many backyard mechanics. In order to make the swap happen you will need aftermarket motor mounts, modified axles, a modified wiring harness, a pedal swap, a new center console (to make the shifter look right,) and an upgrade from OBD0 to OBD1.Depending on the trim level of your 1991 Civic, you can swap motors from the same generation Civic (1988-1991) for not only a power increase, but a cheaper and easier swap. So if you have an LX, you could source a D16A6 engine from a Civic SI for a considerable power improvement, and all you will need is the motor and preferably the Engine Control Unit (ECU).The automatic-to-manual swap will require a set of pedals from a 1988-1991 Civic, a manual transmission for the motor you have or want to use with shift linkage, all clutch components with lines and cylinder(s), and an ECU designed for both your motor and transmission.

i personally have a 1997 Honda civic, see these go by generations, 92-95 is a 5th generation and 96-99/2000 is a 6th generation, 6th gens base models usually come with d16y7 or d16y8 motors in them, check you cars engine and if it is a d series engine, it should work, i think d16 and d15 series are alike. but if your going for performance, just do a gsr swap, most power for the money

i wouldn't swap it, the 87 is carbureated and the prelude is fuel injected, just put the same engine in. the 87 accord engine has less hp .
