If u are going to motor swap you might as well get a b series motor because d series are all single cams so ur not going to get anywhere with it. B16 is cool i swapped my 94 civic that had a d16z6 for a b18b1 and loved it. Vtec is not that cool dude u need more power which u will get from a b or h series

All Hondas have VTEC (it's Honda's valve timing system). If you're looking for the engine with the long-duration cam lift, look for one that is i-VTEC.

its not cheaper to put a b16 in there but its worth it because a b16 has 160hp

a d16 vtec has 125hp

but its cheaper to swap a d16 vtec motor

u will need the longblock and the ecu

also if u have the tranny its even better because of shorter gear ratio better shifting gets more power and torque and pick up
