it is a d15 b7 but you hane to remember this is my first honda so it might be slow in comparison to other moters 5 spd helps it. any sugestions as what might fit in the 88 instead

that could end up being a little tricky, only because the wiring had to be changed to work with the 95 motor. what i mean is, do you know if you have an obd1 ecu? other than that, as to your ?, any d series, or zc, or even b series will pretty much bolt in, vtec or non.

from what i am gitting from the swap is that they left the original trotle botty intake from the 1.5 that was in it. So i can only presume that the wiring harness and the ecu is original for the 88 also. So i think that i would have to change the ecu and wiring harness to work with a newer multi port injection intake. That looks like a lot of work so is there any help for the d15b7? If not can i put an integra b18 motor in my 88 civic because i can get one and the ecu and wiring harness how rough would it be? Is it worth this swap.


Should d15b7 stay or go ?

if you wanna tear into the bottom end yous hould keep the D15. some a3 pistons and a y8 head will set you up with a nice 12.1:1 compression ratio.

beefing up the d15b7 is what i would like to do. because i just met a guy today that i used to go to highschool with and he has two 90, 91 civic hatchbacks with my moter in them he said that i can have free parts off them. So basically that means a spare moter to rebuild. Now one of his d15b7 moters had a 1.6 vetec head on it. Is that a disent match up?

Keep the info comming thanks people!!
