you will need to buy hasport mounts. www.hasport.com

you will need to send your engine wiring harness from the k20, and your stock engine harness to hondata.

you will need to send your k20 ecu to hondata

you will need to modify your axles.

you will need to change your steering rack and put an EG steering rack(92-95 civic)

you will need to buy fuel hoses, and fittings.

and about the gauge cluster, you will need to use your stock one. it will work.

if you were in cali, i could do it for you

So you can run the HASport EKK2 mount kit, as stated it centers the motor over the wheels better, better axle angle and better oil pan clearance
