    the big issue here is OBD
    your car is OBD-1 that engine is OBD-0

    first of all its illegal to go backwards with OBD
    second if all its a bitch to go from 1 to 0 as the injectors and a bunch of other shit work differently
    third its kinda pointless you could get a D16Z6 and have more power and it drops right in... all 92 civics are prewired for VTEC regardless of whether or not they are so equipped... so literally all you would need to do is drop the engine in hook up the P28 ECU and go (you would benefit from the matching transmission though)
