    the 5th gen DX already has a D15 engine...

    Do you mean D16? or B16?

    i believe he means the jdm d15b vtec engine. its very cheap and very easy, i myself am in the process of doing this swap. about 128 hp engine, pros are its cheap, light and had decent power to start with and if your lucky maybe even a tranny. cons are its still not that fast and parts selection

    straight bolt in and yes your dx tranny will work but i would recommend a newer d16y8 tranny. dx has longer gearing then the ex trannies
