Hey guys, I was wondering about swapping a D16Y7 into a 5th Generation Civic? I know the mount locations make it possible, but aside from a different ECU, what would hold me back? Will it work?
first off what trim level is this 5th gen. i.e. si, ex, hx, dx, cx, vx???
does this fifth gen need a new motor, or are you getting a super good deal on it???
Personally I would look into swap in a d16z6 or d16y8, but if the y7 is what you are going with, you can convert that motor to work with the 5th gen, just swap out the distributor, for an OBD1 Distributor, and put in the y7 ecu.
