    When we say complete bolt in, you will need the get new mounts (from other b series cars like integras is fine, normally they come with the swap.) Also, you will need a new tranny if you go with options 1-8 (also 99% of the time, comes with the swap) ECU normally has to be modifyed or changed. Wiring for VTEC normally is not that hard but if you have a civic VX, si, ex, or del sol SI, you dont really have to worry about this

    The mounts you need to directly bolt it in are as follows

    Like asmallsol said,if your car has vtec then you are good,if not you have to wire it,which isn't hard.You will need the B series linkage if you go with a B.

    your car is a 93 from canada right???
    you might be prewired for VTEC
    all 92s were and some 93s were most of the 93s were canadian models

    but anyway... yes you can use stock integra mounts
    you dont need the hasport mounts ... they are a good chouce if you want a solid polly mount though

    welp you still might need to wire for VTEC... not ALL 93s were pre wired... but there is a chance you might not
