This swap isnt really that hard to do at all!!! all you will need are the following:

Integra motor mounts!!!!
Integra shift linkage
Integra(bseries) axels
and a integra ecu pref. onethat is obd1 since your eg civic is already obd1..otherwise you will have to purchase a conversion harnessfrom either obd0 to obd1 or obd2 to obd1.

This swap really is not that hard at all. All you need to do is undo your harness by the six plugs. three on each side of the motor.
once those are out make sure you have everything disconected and out of your way. ex. exhaust manifold. radiator...etc.

Then what you will want to do is take of your shift linkage and take out your axels.

then what you want to do is just loosen your motor mounts and hook up your chain to using two sterdy mount holes to lift your motor up and out of your car.

Then take out your bolts and begin to lift your motor out of the car (you might need to jock it around a little bit but it will come out.)

The start with you new b series motor and work your way backwards from which you started.

This is a good learning project. If you work on it non stop you should be able to get it done in three to four days.

If you have any questions or comments pm me i check it often.

dont forget to disconnect fuel lines and coolant lines Wink


oh and depending on which model and year of car you are swapping the motor into. you may have to wire the vtec solenoid and vtec pressure switch from the ECU to the engine harness!! Wink

just some more good info for anyone who doesnt know

true, only the 92 hatchbacks had the wiring for vtec solenoid & oil pressure sensor ran up to the passenger side shock tower. (correct me if I'm wrong) and the EX/Si had the full wiring & sensors. Any other years and you'll need to pin the wires into your ECU.

I'd start a new thread specifically for your B build thumb up
It probably won't get as much attention in this old B18 swap thread.

With a B18C in, would it be difficult to make room for p/s pump and a/c compressor and all?? And could we use/interchange, stuff from D-series, like distributors, starter motors and all for B-series motors?

I got a 93 Si, what exactly would i be looking for? when lookin for the wiring for vtec. I mean it is a D16z6 Vtec, so im hoping it has vtec wiring..

got any pics of it?

I see this is your first post, here's some pointers to help you get a good answer.
1. start a new thread. this is a specific problem and will get more attention if it is not part of an old thread.
2. what do you mean by " wasnt normal" Confused
3. what "sensor" are you talking about?
4. how is it running now compared to before?
5. do you have a check engine light and what is the code? (DIY for checking code in the Electrical section)
