    I know the swap really isn't worth the hassle, but heres in deal.

    The previous owner of the car blew the original d16 the came in the car.. so theres a d15 in it now the car runs fine as it is but i don't have a transmission for it... i bought the car from the transmission shop for $461 but they already scrapped the transmission to get some of their money for the car sitting there because my buddy didn't pay them in over a year... thats how i ended up with the car.

    my sister recently totaled a 88 Acura Integra LS from which i got the D16A1 and transmission...

    I need to know everything i need to do to put the D16A1 into my 95 Civic Ex because im on a really tight budget right now i already have the D16A1 motor and transmission.... and i want more power than what the D15 has.

    I have the computer out of the integra and mounts also... im just stuck on getting the motor in there... both cars are 5 speed and i have the integra clutch cable already ran and working [​IMG]

    I really need to get this done soon also because it's the middle of winter and im currently riding a motorcycle and that shit is no fun...

    thanks in advance i hope somebody can point me in the right direction soon!

    The swap will be straight up, however; I believe you will need to get a conversion harness, since the D16A is OBD0 and you are OBD1. www.rywire.com can help you out with wire harnesses.

    As far as the transmission goes, if it is hydraulic then you will not need to do anything to modify it.

    The D16A is the one of the strongest D series engines because of the girdle it comes with. Were you to ever find a nice VTEC head of your choice, it would be a beautiful thing. :D Best of luck to you my friend. :thumbsup: Keep us updated.

    Live anywere close to Iowa? I'm coming back from VT could pop in and take a look for ya... I did a swap similar with my 95 EX ... if im not mistaken you need custom mounts for that Chasie.. which sucks cause there like $185 a pop or so
