    if you want to use that engine and transmission, you would be better off finding the ED/EF car to put it in - the engine could be made to work in the EG, but not the transmission - has different mounts and has a cable actuated clutch - the EGs use a transmission with hydraulic actuated clutch

    Hasport and several other companies make cable-to-hydro conversions, so it is possible. But yeah, it will be cheaper and easier to just find an 88-91 shell rather than try and put this motor into an EG. You'd be looking at an OBD conversion as well if you want to try and make it work in a 92-95.
