is he getting a 96+ ex swap??
if so the mounts are the same.

AnthonyA182.......whats wrong with getting an ex swap for a dx??
i mean the ex setup is better than the dx right? its not like he's putting a civic dx motor into an integra typer body.
not everyone has +-$3000 to spend on a gsr,b16 etc..swap.
i mean i got an 99 ex swap for my dx civic also.
paid $900 for the complete swap with 1200 miles on it.
with just an intake and exhaust i ran a [email protected]

Well I'm not saying it's a horrible swap, I mean if you find an outstanding deal, then by all means go for it. Basically it helps if you have a plan of where your car is, and what you want your car to be. And then go from there. So if you want to run 12s, a D16 isn't your best bet (possible, but not the best way) But hey to each their own.

My friend owned a 11 second civic hatchback with turbo and nos. He wants to work on something else. Plus it is a good price for the motor.

besides gaining a few HP hes not really gaining anything over a DX motor. when u compare a DX car vs a EX, it comes down to the driver. DX has less weight, little HP differences. i definitely wouldnt upgrade to just a EX motor. im a wiring guru, but i definitely wouldnt do an upgrade like that just for the pain of wiring.
