I'm totaly new to honda's, but need something that gets good mileage for cheap.

I can't find a 'VX' car anywhere, but there's a 95 Del Sol S & a 93 Coupe DX that both need engines for sale in the paper.

If I get a 92-95 VX engine (D15Z1) also called a vtec-E I think, will it drop into either of the above cars with no rigging things? Do they use the same fuel system and computer etc.

If I have to cut & slice electronics & fuel system things, I probably wouldn't do it. I don't have alot of diagnosing experience.

Thanks for any help or links to subject. :D

hum, these are standard models, how hard is it to swap ECM's? '92-95 is OBD-1. Is that the name of the ECM? So a D15z1 is a small, high efficiency ***** engine? ***** is something that advances the cam?
