Default i live in japan and want to send car parts for my civic back home, but i dont know what

will fit what? Ok i recently moved to japan. i left my 98 honda civic lx back in the states, while i am here i wanted to pull an engine from other honda's that are faster. I also wanted to grab cheap racing stuff and aftermarket parts since they are made here. but the cars here have different names. can any one tell me which are like my civic, its a 4 door, and also what kind of better engines can i put into it? thank you

I don't know about the model name in Japan, but you can just look for a 1.6 liter Honda engine. I had a friend who got a B16a from JPN and installed it in his civic si hatchback. You should be able to fit a B18 into your engine compartment as well. I would look for a type-r engine B16 or B18. I'm pretty sure engines made for the japanese market are illegal in USA. If installed your car will no longer be street legal. You'll probably fail a smog test.
