Default I have three questions about an honda engine swap.?

1.) Does anyone know a website where I can buy a Vtec engine or another performance engine for a 98 Honda Civic LX?

2.) What are some engines that can fit in a 98 Honda Civic?

3.)Will an engine computer from Japan be able to be read by the American computer when it comes time for inspection?

No websites-You can't trust them. Go to a junk yard and get an engine from there.

And now you need a USDM computer, not JDM.

The HONDA engienn block is strong as a bull! you do NOTneed a new ENGINE< maybe just some HEAD WORK! Did the BELT explode on you! it is FAR cheaper to remove the head, and have it repaired and installed back together. Use "" as a guide for good USED engines from each area in the states. THe computers ar4 basically the same but have different programming. You can modify the AMERICAN One easily. GOOD LUCK!

the website which is the most famous one for Honda Engines is & They are the best websites belonging to the same company.

98 Honda Civic if it is LX OR DX OR EX grade has non vtec sohc D16A for LX & DX grade & D16Y8 for Vtec.

No computer from Japan will not work !

Just get an electric supercharger, those things add 5 psi. You'll run circles around everything!
