    ur helps here

    ok, everything will line up fine...mounts, shift linkage ets. youll need to get a obd1 to obd2 wiring harness for your new ecu...if you didnt get the new ecu...get one. Youll need a distributor wiring harness for a obd1 to obd2. Youll have to take the injector wire plugs from the new engine and wire them to the wires that are on your car.(cut the ones of your car that are on there now and replace it with the new ones from your motor). Your axles will be just fine....um.....i believe thats it.

    your going from obd2 to obd1..thats why you need to do the re-wiring, theres going to be a few sensors not needed with this swap...so dont be alarmed when you go to hook up your wiring to the new motor.....dont rememer if you car was vtec or not but you may have to wire in the vtec to the new ecu. You can find the ecu pinouts online..i forgot what ones they are. I just recently put a d15b in my 98 civic.....it went ok, need any more help just ask.
