View Full Version : b16 swap question

07-23-2002, 11:04 PM
ive tried searching for it but i seem to find random posts that dont have to do with what im askin.

im planning on getting a 93 civic hatch (that a 5g i think) im planning on putting in a b16 engine, i got a few questions...

- how much approximately would a new b16 engine cost? (canadian dolllars)
- how much would a slightly used one cost? (canadian dollars)
- how much would it cost to get it installed?

ill most likely get an Si cuz i dont want to drive a gutless dx while i save up the extra money for the engine, unless the engine isnt too expensive and the difference in price between si and dx would be close to the price of the engine+swap.
any input would be great, if you cna put the prices in canadian dollars pls do so but just tell me in what currency your posting your prices as.

please no flames about the search.

New B16A from Honda is probably $7000
Used B16A from Japan = $3000
Used B16A from japan installed from reputable shop = $4500 tax in
