Lsd Tranny?

I have a 93 Civic Si, and i'm planning on throwing a B16a2 in it. My question is if i don't put in a LSD on the tranny when i swap it, is it hard to add-on afterwards?

yes. And if you're going through the trouble of puttin in an LSD at least put in an aftermarket one. But they are $$$$.
I regret not spending the extra $300 i think it was for the LSD. Spring for it man its totally worth it and would cost three times as much to add a LSD later.

Is it possible to put a LSD on a Civic Si (D15b) engine?

yes... D-series tranny can have LSD too...

and for brands, do a search... type "LSD" or "LSD brand"
there were coverage before...

i don't know how much of a difference LSD can be felt on a stock d-series motor due to the power output, but i know if you turbo it... the lsd will come to full use....

whatever your plans might be... LSD is the right choice....

I wouldn't say the JDM D-Series LSD would be that great for a Turbo application....there have been reports of them grenading when pushing 140+ whp....then there are those freak cases they're pushing 200+, me personally i think the ratio of grenading d-LSD's are greater then them not...

...also 2 wheels gripping is always better than 1.

oh fer real? from what i've heard, i agree with sugarcane, two tires spinning is better than one. Cuz i also have plans to get a lighter flywheel, which would still put more power to the ground, no?

I had to change my mind about the B16 engine, cost too much money right now since i'm in school right now. Financially it's not logical. But I'm gonna work on my Si engine for the time being
