    nothing is direct bolt unless your SI or HF. If you are DX than you'll have to convert to multi-port-fuel-injection. Not very hard, just time consuming. If si- single cam ZC or DOHC ZC.

    D16z6 from a 92-95 Civic Si or EX will directly bolt in..so will a DOHC ZC. i would go with the D16z6 since there is more aftermarket stuff for them.

    It is much easier to just buy a manual pedal assembly. You can weld in another pedal though. As for the transmission, the z6 tranny will go in, however it is hydraulically activated. You will have to convert your car if you plan on using this tranny. I would just use 89-91 SI tranny.

    Are you sure about that? The 92-95 tranny is a hydraulic where as the crx is cable. Also three of the four mounts are on the tranny. I am 98% sure that the 4th and 5th gen tranny mounts are in different spots.

    so what you guys arre saying is to go with a crx si manual transmission and the the D16z6 from the '92-'95 civic si or ex. will a motor from an automatic civic go on the manual? would the motor form and automatic be better because it is less beat on?

    Yes, except the auto could have been beaten more, depends on the last owner. I think the auto has shitty cams in it.
