    I have a 87 civic si with a 1.5 and a 87 teg with a dohc 1.6. im not sure which version the motor is in the teg. I was wondering if the swap was possible or if it was even worth it?? Any help would be appreciated :D

    here you go Noob.....G1 CRX Forum but the answer is yes......if it is the 88-89 Teg motor in your 87 Si. The motor from the 87 Teg will bolt right in , but the electronics arent compatible like the 88-89 Integra D16A1.

    wrong

    you need the 86-87 teg engine

    1G rex's had vacuum advance ignition, same as the 86-87 teg
    the 88-89 tegs had electronic advance ignition

    totally diff electronics

    the blocks are the same so they both bolt in
    but the dizzy's, wiring and ecu's are different

    save your self the hassle and get the 86-87 engine
    i know the you are thinking the 88-89 has 8-10 more hp but
    dont think about swapping the dizzy from the 86-87 to the 88-89 because the holes in the head dont line up
