2nd. Generation B16A motors came in the JDM Civic SiRs.

168hp 111lb.ft. of torque OBDI hydro transmission


I love the B16A....any parts? hell...the B16A has one of THE LARGEST AFTERMARKETS!!!!!!!

www.redime.com/swaps
Please tell them that SEAN sent u if u buy a motor!

The B16A is a very reliable motor. Has a large aftermarket and tons of potential. It's a great motor for the Civic enthusiast on a budget.

hold on...

The B16A came out as B16a1 in the 88-91 CRXs. Cable tranny, non-OBD. And the one in the old JDM Tegs.

Then, there's the second gen. B16A. That's the one I talked about. Came in the JDM 92-95 CIvic SiRs. OBDI hydro tranny

Then there is the B16A found in the del Sol VTEC which is OBD1 and OBDII. Depending on the year u buy.

Then, there's the B16A found in the 99-00 Civic Si. OBDII hydro.

Which are you talking about?

What car is the motor going into?

Why do you want one of those? OBDII isn't the greatest....

i was originally planning on a GSR swap but then i decided that i wanted to keep it a civic. the car that i have is a 96' HX (manual) with Greddy EVO exhaust, AEM CAI, and HP Racing headers. i am rollin' on some 17" Smith's Twisters, but that is going to change to the SI rims( look good and way a hell of a lot less)

Less torque than what? a 5l V8? yes. A 2l i6? yes. a 1600 SOHC D series? NO!

For a little 4cly the B16a is an amazingly torquey engine, and what it lacks in peak torque compared to larger engines it makes up for in having a very flat and very useable torque curve.
