    You don't need motor mounts, its likw swapping a 98 D16 out of a Civic EX into a 92 Civic EX. Only thing you'd have to wire up is the VTEC since they're both the same car just different years and use the same motor mounts

    dude your 91 ex is an OBD1, if you dont believe me then pull out the ecu and take a look at it yourself.

    91 and below is OBD 0, if you don't believe me jump off a cliff. 92-95 is OBD 1, 96 and up is OBD 2

    Technically, they are obd 0, 90-93. However, they plug in the same as OBD 1. The swap would be pretty standard. Make sure that you use your stock Accessory mounts, and original wiring harness. VTEC would need to be wired, but it's not that hard. It will be a cheap, easy swap. Everything will plug in fine. When in doubt, use your stock stuff.

    no, 90-93 isn't OBD 0. Only up to 91. 92 to 95 is OBD1. 96 and up is OBD 2

    This isn't worth arguing over again. We all know that 91 and below SHOULD be OBD0, but there's been word otherwise that the ECU and wiring harness on ALL 90-93 Accords are OBD1.

    Until anyone provides proof on the matter, quit arguing.

    As for the original question....I would say that it really wasn't worth it, unless you just want to do it to sell the car.

    I've done a few swaps now. If I were you, I'd do it. If you can do an H22, that swap will be a breeze.
