Hey everyone,
I’m looking for some advice/guidance for what I should do next with my project 2000 civic Ej8 coupe. Right now I’m stuck between doing an auto to manual transmission swap or swapping in a B18c1, not sure which I should do first.
any advice is appreciated

Why would you even need to consider doing an auto to manual swap? Is this not the EM1 Si?

yea it is Canadian
That clarifies things...
US model EX's are Si's in Canadia, the US market EM1 SI, is a SiR up there.

I would do the auto to manual swap first I suppose, there is no point to swapping in a GSR motor if the car is still automatic.
Or, save up, and do both the transmission swap and motor swap at the same time!
