Default Civic Engine swap?

I have a 95 civic dx and i wanted to swap the engine for a b16a.I'm thinking of buying from "http://www.hmotorsonline.com/shop/".Would I need a complete change over(including transmission, etc.) or can I just buy the long block for $900?Sorry for the noob question... im only 16

Don't waste your time or money. Save your money and buy a real car.

Engine swaps are not only costly, but a lot of work. If you search for some forums, you will find the information you're looking for. But to give some help, you need the engine. In some cases, motor mounts. Transmission may not be necessary, I don't know too much about doing this kind of work.

You will need the motor/tranny, the motor and tranny mounts, shift linkages, ECU from the B16, axles, and COMPLETE wiring harness from the B16.

You will need everything. If you are not willing to spend the time and money to make it run right it is not worth it. building an engine takes a lot of effort. Also the B16a engine is not worth the time or money. A forum to cheek out is http://clubrsx.com they do a lot of engine swaps on there ask around there see how hard or easy it was for them. that is before you throw your money into that project.

What motor do you have in it now? If it is the D series, then for sure you will need all new everything. It will get costly, but it will definatley give you more speed and torque.
