I finally saved enough to get a GSR swap on my 96 civic DX (should be done next week). I was just wondering how adding mods works on swaped engines... I want and have enough for a AEM Cold air and DC 4-2-1 SS but was wondering which one to order, and if they will have to be custom installs because of the different engine and layout.

If you have the stock GSR manifold then you will need a CAI for a GSR. The Type R or SI one won't work since the stock intake manifold on a GSR sits so low. If you went ahead andeither got a Skunk 2 manifold or a type R mainifold the you could use the other ones.

I am in the process of doing the gsr swap into my 00 civic cx. I found that aem makes a hybrid intake for the b18c into the 96-00 civic. retail is around 215-250. As far as the headers go you are going to need to get a the gsr headers, and a custom exhaust, cat will need to be replaced with aftermarket if you so choose.

Get an ebay short ram and put a AEm dryflow filter on it. With your setup your not going to get any extra power from a 200 dollar intake. If your internals are all stock just get the intake, a dc 4-1 jdm header, and a catback. You can leave the cat stock your not going to get any hp from a highflow cat you'll just make your car sound raspy. Other than that get some ITR cams and you dont need to do anymore mods until you build the bottom end.
