i dont thinks so, its a different generation, you know?

people are putting the newer i-vtec engines (your generation) in 96-00 civics, ive seen some pics and videos,

but as far as the other way araound.... i dont think so...
its illegal to have an older model engine than your actual car anyway.... i would work on suspension, etc...until the prices come down on those type-s engines and the like... then i would swap after its been done a few times.....

but for now, i would get things for your car that you know will carry over after you do the swap, like suspension, maybe an exhuast and cheap intake....

You'd probably want to look at the RSX-S engine (don't know the code) rather than one of the pre-2001 B-series engines.

Putting a B series or H series into the new Civics(2001 and newer) is not possible without tons of refabercation. You can however put any new K series engine under the hood with a new sub frame. HASport has started producing the new subframe and you will probally see it in the near future. You must still get the proper motor mounts to mount the new engine. Lrt it be known that the K series engines are as interchangable, if not more so, than the B series engines and alot of mixing and matching of parts will bring different outcomes to your engine package. Have fun.

Hey Indy, guess what I am seeing a lot of while I am over here in London... A bunch of the new Civic Type-R's. Very nice... They also have the new Si style in a whole bunch of trims. (3dr, 5dr, Type-R 3dr, etc) Most of the Hatchbacks are Silver/Grey though. I will bring back loads of picts for you to look at. :cool:
