    Yes you can use motor but you need a manual ecu and a cable tranny

    Ok Ima break it down.
    Motor/tranny
    ecu
    stock engine harness from the civic convert to mpfi
    innovative or hasport motor mounts for a b18 ef swap or you can be cheap and get eBay I recommend not to
    axles and intermedate shaft and bolts for the shaft
    if your hatch is a 4 speed you need to get 5 speed hubs and not 4 speed/hf
    shift linkage I used the da linkage cut it turned and welled it back together(it to long and stock one is to short) or buy hasport one innovative I heard needs modified to
    you need down pipe from your da and fitted to your exhaust I'd save your exhaust system from the da and take it to a shop and have them fit it up I did mine myself

    lol yeah no prob figured it would make it easier also you can use the stock RAD but you need to modified to get the hoses to fit right because the teg ones are bigger the civic ones are smaller me i just used the RAD from the teg
