    The integra didnt come with a B18 until 1990, the engine that came in the 86-89 LS was a 1.6 DOHC similar to the ZC. D16a1, it will fit in your 94 civic with minimal work but not worth the effort. Now if you had a 85-87 Civic or CRX to put that engine in, then thats a different story rite there.

    unless it was like a 11/89 because then it would be considered a 90

    someone must have swapped it then.

    Mechanically it should be the same as swapping any other b-series except for the fact that the a1 transmission uses a cable clutch.

    Your main issue will be with the wiring, putting an OBD0 engine into an OBD1 car.

    there is a write up on this for an OBD0 b16a engine, should be similar for you.
