    hey guys, have a pretty easy question for you..
    A D17B7.. i think.. its out of a 92-95 Civic.. and put it into the 89 Civic.

    How hard is the wiring?

    The 89 DX axles will work correct?

    Anything else I need to know?

    I think that's a typo since he got it right in the title.

    You'd just need a 88-91 transmission, 88-91 motor mount, 88-91 axles, etc. As far as the wiring goes, the easiest way is to get a MPFI harness and swap it on there a long with a 88-91 MPFI distributor or a OBD0/1 distributor adapter harness. You can run a PM6 or get an OBD1 conversion harness and run a OBD1 ECU/P06.

    Alright for give me guys, typo in the first thread, it is D15 not D17 haha..
    But I am new to imports and I am about to pick up a 89 with the engine and tranny already in, but it needs to be wired up and axles.
    The engine is mounted in, shift linkage is hooked up, the 92-95 ecu is there..
    So will the 88-91 Axles work? and how hard will it be to wire with the 92-95 or 91 wire harness? And you said a different distributor.. how come?

    Yes 88-91 axles will work. I said different distributor because they use different plugs; although a adapter harness will suffice.
