Default Junkyard 8th gen motor swap

This is the motor from a 2010 Civic that I'm putting into a 2009...cracked block. I cleaned it up a bit after paying a couple guys at U Pull It 100 bucks to put it on the ground for me. I pulled the old one up and out, leaving the transaxle in place and that was interesting...barely enough room and I managed not to hurt the brake lines! The sticker on the donor car...collision damage...said 110K and the leakdown test I did (cold engine) said compression loss was between 8 and 10 percent on each cylinder so I'm thinking the motor is good.
