5 spd v-tec will mate but I would just get an automatic v-tec ECU and run the v-tec wires. instead of fooling around with the chip its easier just to plug in the computer. They won't be that much. automatic civic v-tec computers are not in high demand.

as far as i know if u want to hook up the wires for VTEC will cost u around 500-600 dollars, i don't think it's worth it since he's on automatic

i've got a complete b17 swap in the fs forum for only $2500. might as well put something in there that has more oomph!

why would it cost $500-$600 to run wires? Thats paying to much. I know a guy how would do that for $300.00 to $350.00. thats swaping the motor and running the v-tec wires. with an automatic ECU. Of course they would have to supply the motor. There are tons of 1.5 and 1.6 vtec enignes.

300-350........... its a shame because this kind of thing is killing the automotive trade. As a tech it pisses me off

how much would it cost (ranges) to swap a b16 into a civic (price of motor and labour, to get everything running well)?

well as all automotive tech's you get 1 stubborn bolt or other problems such as previous tech's who %^$& up the car, then costs go up of course. I don't see the guy i know just doing it for 300-350 unless all the bolts came off NP.
