Default ZC Swap! What do I need?

So I just picked up a ZC OBD0 motor and tranny with a crx si ecu. I'm planning on dropping it into my EG hatch with a d15 in it. What would I need to do the swap? I'm clueless about this swap, and I'm planning to do it asap since the car is not running anymore. Any help is appreciated.

Fan switch is on the back of the block, so you'll need to do some pick and pull to get the wires to reach, but that is about it I think.

Cheapest place for dizzy I found is eBay bout 100 shipped.
You also need a eg grocers side mount.
The trans you have us cable right? So you need a hydrolic trans. No need for axles now.

Thanks everyone, I'm just trying to piece everything together before I swap it tomorrow. The engine came with a trans,crx axles and a PM6 ecu. Can I use these?.Also, I'm pretty sure it came with the right distributor as well. Is there any way to check?

Obd1 dizzy will have gray plugs.
You cant use the si ecu.
You can't use the trans. It's cable activated
You can't use the axles there wrong length.

Can I just convert the distributor from obd0 to obd1? or is that not possible and I should just find a new distributor?

get the td43u from ebay, they have some decent ones you can buy that are from US companies, but if you get the ching chong unit then it will be wise to open it up and retorque all the sensor mounting screws. mine came loose mid track and engine didn't like it.
