    well if an engine swap u need to SWAP THA WHOLE ENGINE!!! lol
    but if u have nething like headers or any thing keep though and put them on tha new engine
    engine swapping is not that hard unless its not a direct fit but in ur case it is

    agreed, haha.


    You need axles, the correct ECU if you didn't buy it from them, the right motor mounts, all the corrects radiator hoses, wiring harness, shift linkage, and if needed, an OBD conversion. You will also probably need more stuff that I'm sure I'm forgetting. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    What you linked to is just an engine. Instead of buying that, just buy one of their complete swaps. It will come with pretty much everything you'll need...

    You'll still need motor mounts, shift linkage, axles, maybe a throttle cable. Also, since you have a 1998, you'll need to get a OBD2>OBD1 conversion, I think you can get those online for ~$100. Unless you are buying an obd2 engine, which most likely, you are not.

    ACTUALLY, if he were to just buy one of their complete swaps, like I suggested, they come with mounts (choice of stock or after-market), axles, and the shift linkage, and they do sell both OBD1 and OBD2 engines.

    Did you even bother looking around the website before you posted? Obviously not...

    well i dont know much about the trim models, but if the car has a d series hes still gonna need a radiator(or find some adapters) an exhaust most likely, and some of the hoses will probably be to short or a different sizes, a throttle cable(ive heard of ppl using spacers instead but idk), and if its jdm he'll have to either extend the wiring harness to reach or get a RHD harness( i think this works not sure), and idk what else, im still a noob but im pretty sure about that stuff lol but if im wrong the honda experts around here will surely correct me

    Sorry, my answer was directed at the "complete engine, trans, ecu" packages. You are correct about the complete change overs.
