I'm putting a D16y8 in my 99 Civic LX. Do I need different motor mounts? Do I need a different wiring harness? I'm also converting the car to stick and making it turbo. Any suggestions would help.

Actually you don't really need a new harness. But you'll need a different ECU. Since you car is a 99, you'll need a ODB2b EX ECU. This ECU will engage VTEC (not found on your LX engine) and also has the air/fuel/timing maps designed to run the larger injectors on the Y8 engine. You will have to do some minor wiring yourself though to wire in the VTEC solenoid, knock sensor, and IACV.
