yes, it's a direct replacement. all mounts are the same.......

utilize your current intake manifold and exhaust manifold. intake manifold, due to the fact that there are more vacuum hoses on the B21. depending on what year or if it's a JDM B20A (no EGR), is the reason to use the B21 Exhaust Manifold (O2 bung in the y-pipe).

before someone steers you wrong, these are the only motors that are a direct swap for the 3rd Gen. Definitely not as tuner friendly as a civic.

BTW, here's a few pics of mine:
