Acura/Honda-engineswap Guru.



Helping out a friend who has cooked his 1.6 SOHC 2000 Civic engine.
Can get an 94 Acura integra 1.8 DOHC car & Engine for next to nothing.
So my question, can we swap out his blown 1.6 with the 1.8 into his 2000 Civic?

Info or reference to a site were I could find the info would be appreciated.

Now you're gonna make me think waaay back to my Honda days...haha. As the kids get dumber and dumber every year, the quality of most H/A sites has really gone downhill to the point where I can't really recommend any. The best thing to do is to actually talk to someone who does D to B swaps. (If you ever need info on an F to H22 swap, I am the guy to talk to!) But for the smaller motors, I recommend Ken at IPC in Brampton (905.791.2277). There's nothing that guy doesn't know about H/A vehicles, just do your research and don't ask stupid questions.

However, the problem I see with this swap is that's gonna be a OBD II to OBD I conversion. You'll never pass emissions. Plus the ECU harness is different. It's too much work quite frankly. Your friend will be better off if he sticks with OBD II motors.

you wont need hasport mounts, use the stock integra mounts...everything is complete plug and play, replace the harness, ecu, and swap everything from the teg into the civic.

The answer I was hoping for.
Sounds a little too good to be true.
Guy was mentioning that his Haynes manual was for Acura integra, Honda civic, and Honda C.R.V.
from 94-2000. Makes me think it really could be this simple.
Still looking for some guy's with H/A experience.

That's one thing we are lucky for in Quebec. We don't have to worry about E-testing(thank-god).

Jeff, who's car you doing and like //MP said E-testing, I hope he lives on our side of the river...So he doesn't have to do that...

Scott Sevard's Civic. Emissions isn't manditory in this project but we would like it to be able to pass anyway if it had to.
