I just wanted to overview this project with you all to make sure im not missing anything, and also i have yet to purchase the engine... ive been looking around online and this engine seems to be pretty damn expensive for a D series! The cheapest i could find it for without waiting on ebay for one to come across at a decent price because i dont have that kind of time... was 750. That includes the ecu, trans, etc. I just need the engine itself, not rebuilt or remanufactured. Any suggestions on a place to score one of these for cheaper and just the engine itself? A junkyard is my last resort...

Ok so anyway, here is what ive got lined up...

1) The engine itself
2) OBDO to OBD1 vtec conversion harness, now i have a question here.. do i want the 4 wire O2 sensor with this or is there a way to still use the one wire O2? And another thing, do i have to purchase a subharness from an EX and send mine in also from the CRX, then they combine the two... is there any way i can just send in the one from the CRX and not have to buy one from an EX also?

3) Now i know i can use my SI transmission but can i use the same clutch and flywheel, its a 91 Si trans?

4) I will be replacing the headgasket and manifold gasket, belts, etc.

5) Vtec solenoid.. hopefully comes with the engine...

5) P28 ecu

6) Right now i have a Dc sports header on a D15b2 block, will this bolt on and line up to the ports of the Y8?

7) Is the intake manifold on the Y8 going to be tight against the firewall? Do i need to bang it back a little bit?

8) New bushings in the engine and trans mounts

9) I heard that the Oil pump on this engine is a little weak for its Vtec needs... so i was going to invest in purchasing a Z6 pump. Will this mount right on no problem?

10) Odds and ends... anything i forgot, any writeups that are complete out there?

I know this is not as complicated as a B series swap but the pressure is on to get this swap done quick and done right, Any help is much appriciated and thanks again members... :D

One more thing, The site that i found the y8 the cheapest at has the power rating of the engine at 168 hp??? I am certain this is not right... isnt it 130? and the compression they are sayin is a little over 10:1? If this is wrong this place seems shady to me that they dont know their engines, should i still consider buying from them?

A few more things here,

Am i supposed to use the a6 distributor?

I heard something about the injectors need to be rewired... instead of doing this can i just use Z6 injectors and use the resistor box still?

Another worry is i heard that the map sensor needs to be extended to attach on the throttle body

Fan switch needs to be wired also?

There is turning out to be more wiring than i thought... :x
