    Default Civic 95 engine swap

    Dear members.

    So I have a weak stock carby D15 installed in my car, and after the gasket is gone 2nd time, the mechanic has proposed that I change the engine. As for the mechanic, he is considered quite reliable in the market.

    Now since the engine needs to be changed, I am thinking to jump to D15b dual vtec. I talked to the mechanic's engine guy in shershah, and he says engine with wiring and ecu for 70k.

    Considering your experiences, please guide me if thats a worthy option, and/or give suitable suggestions. Will it increase the resale value of the car, or devalue it? From what I think, the value will be increased of the car, but to those who know the potential of the dual vtec (correct me if im wrong).

    The guy also gave below options.

    1. D15b non vtec for 55k
    2. some efi engine (probably d15b non vtec) which will be combined with current carburetor in some way (if I head him correctly). Dont exactly recall the price for this option.

    Looking forward for expected assistance. Also let me know if maintenance costs will increase with vtec.

    Regards.

    You can get overhauled it will cost you total around 40k at most. If you plan to keep the car for long and have "shauq" of the 3 stage, only then go for swap. Otherwise its just too much expense for just fixing the car.
    Dear Maverick

    Please suggest me engine oil for my stock d16b3 engine.

    Eventually I changed assembly and bought D15B for my civic 93 with new oil pump. I hope now onward, I would not face any problem with my new engine

    You mean d15b3.

    I dont have much information on best oil to be used, but I think 20-50 will be fine. As for the brand, Caltex was fine but I heard its not available any more. Maybe someone else can shed more light on which brand would be best.
