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.
