    the 92-95 radiator is too tall for the 91 Civic - you could probably make some different mounts at the bottom and get it to work

    you can modify the lower radiator mounting points and use the 92-95 civic radiator but you would have to angle the radiator towards the engine for it to clear the hood because it is to tall. you could also get the place racing cross member that allows the radiator to clear the hood. c&r radiators also make a 92-95 civic style radiator that is made for the ef's. meaning its the same length as the civic radiator but its shorter in height to clear the hood without it angling back wards. it also comes with a slim fan.
