    So I picked up a 91 Civic DX h/b tha has a D15B1 that is barely running and I came across an ad with a D16Y7 with the following:

    ENGINE IS A D16Y7 WHICH IS A 1.6L HONDA CIVIC ENGINE THAT IS EQUIPT WITH A 5 SPEED.... FOR $400 I WILL INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING,: COMPLETE ENGINE WITH TRANS, AXLES, SHIFT LINKCAGE, ALL WIREING AND ECU, I ALSO HAVE ALL THE ENGINE BRACKETS "MOUNTS" THAT WILL BE INCLUDED.

    Now with the information that is provided will this complete motor swap would work on my Civic. And if not what do I need for it to work. Just want a daily driver. Also I'm a newbie at this. Thanks
