    Hey, i am doing a swap into a 2000 civic EX Auto

    I know what most of it other than the following:

    Wiring, what plugs to use and what not to
    Wiring, the dizzy
    What mount to use on the passenger side for the tranny, (and dont tell me the stock integra one, "Remember, its not a manual")

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Try to get the tranmission/mount, computer (ECU), dizzy, wiring (it's the plugs you'll need) from the same model/year it came from.

    {On my d16y8 swap I'm gettin new mounts, 'cause my old ones are pretty bad}

    Without having to convert to VTEC, the ls motor is easier to wire. I'ts best to know where the original wires plugged in. Do a bit of research, consult a manual & find some good pictures. (honda hybrid perf_org) Remember most wires are the same, & not all may need to be used... the engine side uses a different wire harness, so maybe easiest using a conversion.

    ... halfshafts, a water pump, timing belt, plugs/wires, fluids will help too.

    none of the mounts from the integra except for the l bracket will work.
    there are 3 transmission wires that wont plug in, the integra only has one plug
    the distributor has one extra wire
    alll in all there are about 5 wires that hang and 4 plugs that dont get pluged on the motor using my stock EX harness, and i know the v-tec ones will hang so im not including those

    i know the CRV bravket will work oin the driver side, i was just wondering if it will work on the passenger side.

    ITS AN AUTO, SO IF YOU ARENT FAMILIAR WITH AUTO SWAPS INTO AN EK, DONT TELL ME ITS EASY. I KNOW HOW TO DO MANUAL SWAPS INTO ANYTHING,
    " AND I HAVE".

    any other info is appreciated

    are you joking?

    why do i need all of that?

    do i take all that off the v-tec engine and put it onto my ls, will that solve all my mount and wiring problems?
