    Also you need to use the distributor from your del sol. The 99 mounts for the dizzy are different.

    that won't work.. lol

    swap it in.
    use your current driverside and rear mount
    if both old and new motors are vtec, or both are non-vtec, you're golden. if you're converting, you'll need to do some other stuff, but you don't specifiy what you are doing.

    swap the dizzy, injectors, alternator from old motor to new motor.
    alternative is to cut the plug from the new motor and paste onto old harness.

    again, this only works if you're keeping the same vtec/non-vtec motor.

    my concerns on the swap was if i needed the new ecu and wiring harness' like if the original ones from the car would work...also if my original axles would work...to see what i would have to ask the guy for with the new motor so i can lower costs

    thanks

    i can't answer your question because i still don't have a freaking clue what you are doing.

    i'm asuuming you had an si with the d16z6 in there....
    then what?
    and what are you buying from the 99, a y8?

    ok im planning on putting in a d16y7 civic motor into a honda civic del sol 93...and i was wondering if i needed the following parts from the d16....ecu?...axles?..etc....

    or would all my stock parts from the del sol would work for it....so it would be a easy plug n play swap...or woudl i need modifications

    obd2 civic harnesses are vastly different than obd2 integra harnesses.

    you need a p06 ecu (obd1 d15b7 ecu)
    all the rest of the crap is pretty much interchangable expect the dsitributor... you'll need to run the y7 dizzy and re-wire the plug... or score a d15b7 dizzy
