    What year Integra?
    Axles are different- you'll need a D series transmission to go with that D16Y7.

    A D16Y7 into a 92 Integra chassis will require a D-series transmission and an OBD conversion. Honestly, this won't really be that easy of a swap. You might want to consider just finding an older LS motor instead...

    you will need the d series tranny which are cheap along with those axles. a vtec ecu. p28 will work. you will need to run VTEC wires if that isnt already done. you will also need a obd1/2 (whatever yours is) to match your setup. i do not know what mounts are needed im assuming d series mounts. besides that you should be all set but like BrutleB83 said a b18a1 or b1 would be more practical, easier, and more powerful but it looks like you can not be convinced

    You have quite the situation then. The car might have a rats nest for wiring harness for all we can tell. It could be wired for an OBD 0, 1, or 2 1.6 liter. You need to prepare to learn a whole hell of a lot through re-search or start over with a new car. Do you have a engine harness that was in the car when you got it? ECU?

    I am confused about the H22 post you left (like someone else was earlier) I tried to re-read and still seems like it was a shell only? But it also had a H22? Or a 1.6?

    All in all...unless you are in need of immediate transportation...putting that motor in your car is a bad move...period. Its a smaller motor in a heavier car. It will get you around fine but wont be very fun to drive. LS swaps can be found easily and will run you around $1,000-2,000
