Default Engine swap for 94 Acura Integra?

I'm planning on getting a acura integra and I'm gonna get a new engine for it but it's a 96-97 integra type r engine. Can I still put it in my car even if it's not the same year?

To your original question yes it will fit, it will fit as if it was the same motor. The integra's all came with a B-series motor so any year integra would be fine. The Motor mounts WILL already fit! As for the switching to OBD1 that is correct. Just switch the injectors, distributor, I think the alternator but not 100% sure of that. Depending on what model integra you bought then you might not need to wire vtec, but I am assuming you have an LS (B18B) or a non vtec model then you probably will have to get your car rewired for vtec (which really isn't as much as it sounds) and find an ECU that is programmed for on OBD1 vtec setup. I would try to find a P28 ECU, this ECU came out of a 92-95 civic EX. It is the most common for people to use before a tune. I guess another way around that is that you can get a basemap put in on your stock ecu, but realistically this will not give you the full potential of your motor. It will just run as fast as the factory set it, and lets face it that type R will have plenty more potential when tuned on a Dyno. But whatever you do go luck on your swap! And mad props on the come up on a Type R!!! Happy Crackin'!

Yes you can, but you need to convert your car to OBDII or get an OBDI Converter, because the 96-01 integra engines are OBDII. They say OBD I is much easier to mod. Just get hasport motor mounts

B20's answer is dead on but I'd like to add that the '92-95 Civic Si has the same VTEC engine as the '93-95 Civic EX so you can even use an ECU from that model. Also, a 1992-1993 Integra GSR is another option for an ECU.
