http://www.jdmenginedepot.com/jdm_en..._II_Civic_Si-R

is this gunna drop in with little or no problems? and is it gunna be much quicker? also i was wondering if i do wind up going with this am i gunna have to change anything else on my car? like the axles or anything? im just wondering cuz at the bottom of the page it lists what is included and im not sure it thats everything im gunna need. i also wanna keep it automatic, am i gunna see an increase in MPG? i really dont know too much about engines, but what i do know is that i want something quicker than i have. i dont know if this is a dumb question but will i be able to keep my ac?

Re: B16A II Civic swap

I haven't had good luck with this company. My buddy visited them and told me they don't test for compression. I bought a swap from Engine World Inc in Houston last month and I totally recommend them. This is their website : http://www.bestjapaneseengines.com/

Re: B16A II Civic swap

A B16A2/3 in a 94 civic should be a bolt in swap. A JDM B16A is not and it would be a major pain in the ass, not worth the hassle. For the B16A2/3 swap you'd need to wire up the VTEC and an aftermarket shift linkage kit would be needed, I think Hasport makes one.
As for your transmission, you'll want to find one that was built for the engine. Your current one will waste power, fail quickly, or just not work at all (I'm not sure which one, I just know it won't work). You say you want to keep it automatic, but I suggest that you reconsider. Automatic transmissions don't deliver 100% of the engine power to the wheels, manuals do. I'm guessing that you're looking into this swap to make your car go faster, and it will plus there are more options available to upgrade the engine and get more power out of it, but so much of that power goes to waste in an automatic. You can line up two identical cars for a drag race; one with an automatic and one with a manual, and the manual will win every time. You do also lose fuel economy with an automatic.
