Default 1990 SI motor to a 1992 DX

In my searching I haven't found this combination. I realize its not a True performance swap, but my 90 SI was just totaled and I need a working vehicle. I have a 92 DX Sedan that came with the 1.5 D15B7. I would like to put the D16A6 from the SI in it. I can swap most of the mechanicals fairly easy. But will the Dx Control box deal ok with the larger displacement? Any body have any thoughts on this. Any help would be appreciated.

Anyone in the SouthCentral Alaska area, I now have 3 90 civic parts cars if anyone needs pieces.

Thanks

you shouldnt have any problems, just use the head and block from your si everything else from the 92dx put on it.
