I have a G1 Prelude. I want to replace the original engine and auto trans with a better engine.

I tried a b16a1 with a M24A but it was too wide for the g1 engine bay and required chassis cuts.

I have a few questions that could help me with my project:
  1. Does anybody know or can measure the width of a d16 dohc with auto trans?
  2. What code or codes are the dohc auto trans?
  3. Do the sohc d16a use the same auto trans?
  4. I've found a D16a9 engine and manual trans. What do I need to put it into my car with an auto trans..... Loom/ecu/shafts/auto trans/any particular sensors etc? Bearing in mind it will be a show build.
  5. Is it possible to run an auto trans without an ecu and loom if I bought this engine and ran Webbers ditching FI and added whatever was needed for ignition?

so, buy you a d16 with ecu and spend your time fitting it and making it work. you could make a build thread here and help someone in the future

Your response doesn't help answer any of my questions. If you read my first post I did this with a b16 and found it was too wide. I therefore came to a reputable forum to seek some sensible answers if they exist to help me.

If answers follow and it seems feasible I can then build such thread to help others too. However I would imagine there are people of knowledge that may know at least some of the answers I seek.

but you just said "Time and efforts not an issue." so, take your time and make an effort to hit a junkyard and get a measurement lol.

I'm in the UK and there's none around. So maybe there are some owners on the forum who could help.

Where in the UK are you?
If you're not too far fom Hampshire, we could perhaps meet and you could measure a z6 in situ. It's a got a manual box, though.
