Does the D17A2 come with its ECU? Which is OBD-2 and correct me if I'm wrong, the Y7 is OBD-1. I would think that will be the main stumbling block vice the fabrication issues. I know its not a case of drop-in and go. Car length and exhaust mounting points will be different as well - not a big deal if you a have a welder. The 7th gens have a cable shift (I assume you're going MT) instead of the rods that the D16s have. If you're serious about this, you have a lot more homework to do.

Wow, that would be a very difficult swap for ...really not that much more power

Much as I don't like to say it I would blow money a B16A2 before doing that. At least the mounts would be halfway easy.

a '97 would be OBD 2a, don't know what the d17a2 classifies as. OBD 2c? 3?

So what's wrong with your y7?

holy fuck please dont put that motor in there. check out the 7thgen forum...not a lot of action. not much you can do with that engine.

and even if you could find a y8 with, say, 80k...its still a honda motor. it will last if you barely take care of it.

do you even know anyone that would do/has done the swap? man i wouldnt do it...

Good luck finding a motor. I know around where I live the only Honda engines I ever find in junkyards are old 8v units and the occasional a6.

Sometimes you can talk to a junkyard guy to find one. They oftentimes have a network amongst places, so if that particular yard doesn't have a part, they can send you to another one that does.

Autozone could get you a y7/y8 (same process as above, they just get it shipped), but their prices are a little high for used motors.
