Default B18 or Bust

Hi guy's,

I'm looking into buying a 1993 Honda Civic DX HB with stock engine. I've looked around but I can't find any info on if I can put a b18 in this model civic. I know that they sell engine mounts for different types of swaps, but I couldn't find info on this year of car and engine. Any ideas??? Or recommendations for a better engine for this car. Thanks

well for reccomendations...what exactly are you looking for? are you gonna race it? do you just want it to be pretty quick, do you plan on any other mods?

I want to race it eventually, but it will also be a daily driver. I want to start out with a good base and build from that. Mods will come as the back pocket allows. What I don't want is an engine that has been modded into a sohc Vtech. I want the real deal to start with. As you can see I'm new to all this. Any recommendations are welcome.

I have nothing productive to add. Just wanted to post a sohc that you will probably never touch.



Solid lines are race gas tune at 28psi, and dotted lines are pump gas tune at 15-16psi.

Get a B18A1 or B and you will get some more power and torque, a good base for a boosted car, and it wont be that expensive
