((D series swaps))
These are fairly inexpensive and come in a variety of Civics.
IMHO, these are the easiest swaps to drop in.
I also don't want to hear a bunch of whining about the opinions on power levels. Of course there are going to be some exceptions to the rule.
Inexpensive Decent potential (200 whp or so on stock internals) OEM parts are cheap More than enough for most people The best D series come with ~130 hp tops Optional factory LSD in the JDM D15B
Not as much potential as some other motors Transmission not geared for acceleration Don't respond to bolt-ons well Only way to get real power out of them is FI
These can be found in the JDM SIR and SIRII
160 hp stock High RPM power Fairly inexpensive Good transmission DOHC VTEC
113ft/lbs torque (very little more than a D16z6 stock) Without knowing what you're looking for you can end up with a high mileage JDM model Under 4k or so it feels just like a D16
This is the motor in the non Type-R and non GSR Integra.
Good torque for a 1.8L (127 ft/lbs) Inexpensive (even cheaper than a B16) 142 hp (more than any stock D series) Boost heads love them
No VTEC Longest B series transmission
(B18C1 (or JDM B18C)
These come out of an Integra GSR.
Good Hp and TQ numbers (170, 121 ft/lbs respectively) DOHC VTEC Tons of potential High revving
Expensive Becoming more so as people keep scooping them up Slightly longer tranny than the ITR and B16
((B18C5 (or JDM B18C))
This is found in the Integra Type-R. IMHO this is the best swap for a Civic.
( Pros )
GREAT HP and TQ numbers (195 and 134 ft/lbs) High revving Hand built motor from Honda Optional factory LSD Best transmission for a B series from the factory Red valve cover
EXPENSIVE If JDM ITR is used, the 36mm axle 32mm hub problems occur
This is the motor found in the Civic Type R found all over the world.
185 hp 117 ft/lbs High revving Good top end power Red valve cover
Expensive- almost as much as an ITR for lower performance Very little torque still, have to rev the motor to make power
This motor is found mostly in the CR-V
Great torque (133 ft/lbs) good boost motors inexpensive B20z=146hp
Thin cylinder walls Have to piece together a swap for a Civic (can't drop it in with a B20 tranny) Won't pass BAR (light truck motor in a car) Low hp in the B20b(126 hp)
((H22/JDM F20B Prelude Motor))
200 hp H22=156 ft/lbs torque F20B=145 ft/lbs torque Great torque DONT WEIGH THAT MUCH MORE THAN A B SWAP!!
Harder to install than a B/D motor transmission feel is vague IMHO Less info out there for the swap (aka, less experience as they are less common) Price of swap is comparable to a B18C5 after everything is said and done (mounts, etc)
This can be found in the new EP3, the RSX (base and Type S) as well as other cars across the world (RSX R, etc). This is the future of the swap IMHO.
200 hp 158 ft/lbs torque (RSX R) I-VTEC Respond VERY well to bolt-ons 6 speed transmission Most have very low miles
Still super expensive More difficult swap than a B or D
