You shold look for an OBD 0 Engine not OBD 1 with OBD1 you have to do some electrical work (I think Someone correct me if Im wrong)

well if you go d16 its going to be at least obd1 and you will need to get a conversion harness(correct me if im wrong), or you can do it yourself(if you can follow instructions well they have guides online) and youll need to wire up the vtec since you dont have it on your car originally, but you should be able to use your stocks axles, mounts, tranny if you get a d series. another option you can do is get a b16a1 obdo(160 hp stock dohc) but u still have to connect vtec wiring and get new mounts, axles, linkage, and a few odds and ends. im leaning towards the b16 right now unless i can find a cheap d16.

sweet, ill definately look into that, but what bout the year models and other stuff liek that, like what if it isnt a 89 or it doesnt say crx on it, cause a lot im seeing only say lik 99 and up civic or 95 up civic...does that make a difference, as u can probably tell, this is my first civic, hell everything else iv had is a ford sooo, yea thanks
