    My daughter'sboyfriend blowup his 1990 civic hb with a D15B2 automatic, he found a D15B with an automatic included out of an 93 civic hb. The newer motor did not included the wiring harness, starter, power steering,alt., intake manifold and carb . I have no plugs for the VTEC or the plug to fit the trans. On the old wire harness. What do i need to do if i can to get this running ?

    The new motor is VTEC , old is not, new motor came with transmission but didn't come with wiring harness. I don't have plugs on the old harness for the VTEC or the transmission. The new did not have distributor intake or exhaust manifolds or the related parts

    Did you do any research at all before getting into this? Also most of this is covered thoroughly through the internet that's the problem with this site we get all these greenhorns with no information come make silly post when they have a problem only then they're gone forever, one simple Google search would have told you that they're different generation Motors and totally different wiring, also if the kids got a dx auto 88-91 and blew it up and having his father-in-law do a motor swap just scrap the car and get something else

    Can reuse the stock trans and in theory you should be able to run the engine on all the stock d15 intake and dist but wont have vtec which is bad for your cam lobes

    While it can be done, it will be difficult and get expensive to source all the missing pieces you will need.
    dpfi -> mpfi conversion
    obd 0 -> obd1 conversion
    non-vtec - vtec conversion

    and then, the impossible, finding a 3-stage d15b ecu in automatic form.
