    I am posting for a friend who is not computer savvy. Is it possible to swap the engine from an '06 Civic SI into a '96 Civic EX?

    Hmmm. Well he is a mechanic with his own shop. He likely would not have asked me if he didn't already have a donor engine/car. I can see if he will do some pics of the work =)

    Yeah me too but since a lot of people are doing k swaps, that means B series are going to get cheaper and i'd rather have a turbo B series than a K =)

    I am the one who my friend posted for about the 06 si swap into the 96 ex. What is needed for this swap? I have the engine, however the transmission is auto and I have a manual car. I am looking for a manual trany now. Looking for tips on conversion kit i would need?

    Thanks

    - TRANSMISSION
    - ECU WITH IMMOBILIZER (or tuning solution)
    - STOCK ENGINE HARNESS (should come with your swap)
    - CHARGING HARNESS (or fab your own)
    - K SWAP MOTOR MOUNTS
    - CONVERSION HARNESS (or do your own wiring)
    - K SWAP AXLES
    - CLUTCH LINE
    - K SWAP RADIATOR (fab stock radiator to work)
    - RADIATOR HOSES (or fab your own)
    - RADIATOR FAN
    - RADIATOR BRACKET (or fab your own)
    - COOLANT TEMP SENDER AND FAN SWITCH
    - FUEL SYSTEM (RAIL, LINES, FILTER, REGULATOR)
    - SHIFT BOX
    - SHIFTER CABLES
    - HEADER
    - A/C-P/S DELETE or ep3 idler pulley setup
    - OEM HONDA BRACKET #11910-PPA-000 (if using a k24}
    - HEATER HOSES (if you keep heat)

    Damn. i think i will be looking into a gsr motor or something of that sort. Seems like its gonna get real pricey and a very long build.

    Thank you for the heads up

    they can be really expensive depending on how you approach the swap. Buying all the pre-made parts to swap is a killer. buying second hand and doing fab work saves thousands.

    the cheapest way of getting a k swap, is by buying someones completed or nearly complete project.
