    If it is 185hp it sounds like a CTR.If you can get the whole car you will have everything you need to put it into a 92+ civic.Be more specific about what your putting it in.

    You might want to get motor mounts from an aftermarket source like hasport.

    That would depend on the car he is putting it in.There is no reason to buy $500 mounts to put a engine in a car when you can use much cheaper stock mounts.
