I am getting ready to put a D16y8 from a 98 civic into my 90 crx, and this will be my fist time ever taking an engine out of a car. i will have some help from a mechanic, but neither one of us have ever dealt with vtec before, so what i want to know is if there is anything i should know before we get started. i also want to know what i will need to take from the civic in order to make this swap possible.thanks.

Reuse your mounts, dizzy, alternator, starter. You'll probably need to re-wire some of your harness.

Reuse your trans and, in my opinion, replace the clutch disc/throwout bearing/pilot bearing/pressure plate/resurface the flywheel.

Change the timing belt and water pump on the Y8 before you put it in. Saves you from a lot of headaches.

There's more but it's 2am here. :pikachu:
