The swap is very easy.

Yes integra motors are interchangeable, however they are not cheap and you must changeover a lot of parts (mounts, transmission, axles, linkage, PCM, distributor, starter, alternator, etc).

For step by step procedures go out and purchase a service manual for your vehicle. Haynes makes a good product.

If you get stuck or have another question about these swaps, ask away. I am here to help! I specialize on these vehicles.
