Default swap question

I am slowly browsing all the swap threads, and I see alot of people going for the z6 or y8 swaps from this D16Y7 I have.

I am curious though, is it possible to just pull the whole damn thing and throw a DOHC version in?

And if so, what all would have to be replaced to do such a mega swap. It would be nice to retain some things, like the tranny and what not. I don't know alot about the swaps, but I know I want to look into them pretty hard. I have alot of learning to do on that end.

no

to drop in a B-series motor you need a complete swap with a transmission, axles, shift linkage, mounts, ECU. Some wiring, depending on what motor you get. There's not a whole lot that carries over.

here's a good place to start: https://www.hondacivicforum.com/m_10612/tm.htm

awesome, It looks like I might just have to look into a trade to a car thats factory B series, but untilt then I will read up. I am sure I will want to upgrade it anyway.

I may end up swapping out the vtech head on this one, but I haven't completely decided if it would be in my best interest yet. Questions I must ponder over the next few months.

the Y7 isn't that bad!

(though it does suck for power)

at least its a fuel efficient ****

also SOHC ftw!

I wonder if you could boost this one, and get a little extra pick-up.

It would probably be a wasted investment really, for such a small engine.
