Default intake manifold swap, y7 to y8 what is needed?

ok so if my 96civic y7 manual motor is good and the frame is straight i want to swap out the ugly straight up intake manifold and replace it with a y8 sideways style, mainly looks so much better!!!!!

so whtas all needed to make the swap and look/function correctly?
ive searched for info on the swap but cannt find anything.

you can always look up the mini-me swap cuz the mainfold are swapped there also, i know that you need a manifold specifically for a manual, the autos had a different manifold, as far as i know thats all ya need, the complete manifold which includes all the sensors, hoses fuel rail and injectors.
