Hi there,
I bought a 1991 Civic CX hatch from my gandma, I wanted this car since my childhood...
The this is D15 automatic.
The shell is A1, I put tower strut bars and wheels. Now I need to plan serious things for it.

In this order:
-Conversion 4 wheel disc brakes, with integra rear trailing arms
-Sporty suspension kit
-Engine/tranny swap !

What would you recommend as a ''reliable'' Engine swap ?
Do you have JDM parts reseller to recommend ?

Thanks,
Fred

Hi Mr.Baker,
For the power, anything will be better than the stock D15
Let's say I have many years in front of me to do the project, and let's say maybe 5K$ max. over the years
This is not my daily car, so this will be made for fun.

Based on your budget, timetable and the fact that it is not a daily driver. I say keep it simple and do a nice stock Integra GSR swap, B18c1.
For the car and how much it weighs, it will be a nice power upgrade and nowadays, the b series swap is just about drop in and bolt up.
