The B-Series Vtec will fit just right.

You will need a new wiring harness and ECU, but it will be a perfect upgrade for your car.

hey the best motor for the swap is a vtec d16 1.6 sohc its a very good motor all u have to do is drop it in well find one tht is for 93-95 they r the same easily found on kijiji cheap.. i have the identical car and i swaped it out for a vtec d16 its crazy u go from a 1.5 wit 90 hp to a 1.6 wit 130hp.. u also shouldnt have to change anything like wiring it goes in the exact same way.. if u cant find it on kijiji look for the del sol and older prelude engina at a wrecker mine came from japan
