That engine is not the engine of choice of the 88 to 91 cars.... not much more power than an a6 ( which bolts right in and plugs right in) there are going to be alot of things that you are going to encounter along this swap that are going to make you wish you would have gone a different route....

sell the engine to someone with an 84-87 civic or crx.... they will love you for it and you can use the $$ to buy an Si engine ( a6) a dohc ZC or a z6 or y8 all of which will give you much more power and alot less headache...

b series swaps are not this hard and yield huge power gains....

turboing a a1 would be fun if you had a car that this engine actually fit into... but you dont....

i can see being different I am all about being different.... but the DIFFERENCE here is that people do not do this swap for a reason.... yeah it is a HUGE power gain from your HF engine.... but then again so is about any other engine... that would drop right into it....

I know it has been done so you are not going to be a pioneer here.. you need to fab up a mount for the drivers side..... also i know that there are some starter bolt issues or so i am told... where are you located at??? I have a nice low milage DOHC japanese ZC that will bolt right in and walk on an a1... that I am looking to sell..

Im not trying to be ignorant here.... but it just seems to me that you are making alot of work for yourself for very minimal gains compared to what you could get for alot less work....
