I would like to know if the Jdm d15b engine would drop in without diff mounts into a 97 civic. Also would the d16y8 tranny fit into the JDM d15b? thanks

that one civic said:
yes, and yes. just remember that if you're swapping into a car that didn't have VTEC, you'll need to wire up the VTEC, and you'll also need an ECU from a VTEC equipped car.
why do you say he has no vtec? he neer said what 97 civic he was talking about, and he said will the y8 tranny fot on it...clues as to what car he has.

I haven't noticed a difference, except in my gas milage, I get about 30-33mpg now instead of the 27-29mpg I was getting with the y8.
