Default Does JDM have motors for an automatic 1999 Honda Civic Lx?

I have a physical limitation that prevents me from driving a stick shift and wanted to know if I have an option to get a little speed in my daily driver. The vehicle still has the stock d16y7 under the hood with 222,XXX miles and I wanted to know if there is a swap option for me.

Just so you know, the d16y7 that you have is JDM. I have heard of people doing a B16A2 motor swap for this car.

I'm currently in the process of having a B20 engine with an Integra LS automatic swapped into my 1997 Civic LX. It does require a bit of fab work but as far as swaps go it's not terribly pricey. You won't have a super fast car but you'll have a little more pep than with the stock d16y7 or d16y8 engine. In addition to the engine and automatic transmission you will need B series axles, B series engine mounts (these can be a bit pricey), a B series transmission mount (will need a knew hole drill and will need notching). The kicker is that you'll need an Integra ECU and TCM to control the engine and transmission and a rywire obd2b to obd1 harness (watch out emissions might get you here and you might be able to wire it yourself if you can get past the emissions part). I think there is an auto that's JDM that's a bit stronger and geared more towards a more powerful vtec build but that's not really my thing I just wanted more power for my commuter.

An easier solution would be to buy an automatic Integra LS (94-00) in need of an engine and a B20 will swap right in and you'll have an Integra with about 30-40 more horsepower than most stock ones.
