Alright this is gonna sound strange, but I was thinking of swapping the 1989 Integra LS DOHC motor(D16A, 118hp) onto my EG '92 Civic DX, since I bought the whole car for only $50. Does anybody know if this engine bolts up to the newer D series tranny's and if it bolts right in?

1) putting an older motor than your car is into your vehicle is illegal

2) All d-series motors can be used with d-series trannies

3) It probably won't "bolt right in" you will have to do some modifying

Hmm...yeah I kinda forgot that it was illegal to swap older engines into newer cars. But I guess I can get away with it since smog checks are no more in Minnesota. The air here is just to damn clean.

What's so strange and insane about it?
um cause its a waste of time, 118hp instead of 106......not worth the effort, plus youll need a conversion kit, 92 hydro tranny, 89 cable(at least i think so and im to lazy to make sure)

Why not just get the nexer integra motor, b18b? You got the car for cheap, and its a fairly expensive swap and much more worth your time.

you can get a d16y8 for under $500, with 108whp. The potentials are almost endless and sence its legal, you can move anywhere with out a hassel. + it will bolt right in.
