Hey guy's couple questions: I wanna swap the 89 civic...found this in my local paper..

Acura Integra LS, 1992, 1.8L DOHC, for parts, 212,000 kms, runs well, front body damage, CD, lots of good parts & glass.

what all from it would i need to do the swap?
And what all would i need to buy\make to complete swap?

Thanks

Ihave a 2002 Honda accord VIN 1HGCG32642A013358 and had to replace the motor in it with VIN 1HGCG5641XA155212

Reason I putting the VIN in here is cause of getting the check engine light to go out getting 3 error codes one being the knock sensor, replaced the knock sensor twice just because check wiring (car shop did) said wiring was ok. My thinking was maybe the wiring pin might be different on the 2 cars? any ideas I can afford to pay $85.00 a hour to just start digging around.......sigh
error codes are, PO325 (knock sensor bank 1) PO700 (Transmission control system) P1739 (TCM A/T controller circuit)

Just replaced the knock sensor again day ago but cleared the error codes and did no good they cam back, not sure what to do at this point car seems to run great trans may be shifting little funny but that might be me an being used to a 1/2 ton truck. But anyway anyone have any ideas out there where to look or to check out so I can point the mechanic in the right direction.............help please

Why the hell are you posting in a thread from 2008 regarding a B18 swap which has NOTHING to do with your car?????? Make a new thread in the proper section of the forum.

Would it be better to just say Make a new thread in the appropriate section? I felt the need to mention the fact you revived a dead thread in case you plan to do it again.

This engine swap, in any chassis has been covered a few times. Locking this now.
