I'm trying to achieve as mutch information as possible on this subject, what parts from which models do interchange with each other, at first I'm trying to get as mutch informaton for the 5g Civic's because that's my current ride (EG8 with B16a2 swap)

I know Honda engine components do interchange as long as the engine blocks are the same i.e. B18 exhaust header on B16 engine.

But what else is there out there? I will use this thread as my own notepad and write down the information I get hold off, and I apreciate if somebody else post information as well!

Big brake upgrade (5G Civics):

Redrill brakes from Prelude 2.2 VTEC to 4x100 pattern and use them on 92-95 Civic Ex knuckles (these have ABS) with the 91-94 Accord Wagon calipers(may have to shave off 1/8" of the caliper mount to make them fit)
