Default i need help completing an engine swap.?

i was recently forced to replace the motor in my 99 honda civic ex. i used a 96 rebuild from a reputable shop. both are d16y8. i also replaced the intake. the car started and ran great until it warmed up then it ran extremely rough and chugged a lot. what should i look at next? are these motors compatible? I really need help as i now have two non-running civics and i need to get one running asap.

the 96 was the best value. and swap was done by my son. he knows the basics but really couldn't answer why the car was running so rough.

You would still need to swap the ECU.

Im not sure why an older motor was put in a newer car, from the smog standpoint this does not usually work too well. But the key is now to find a good reputable shop in your area, if you are not going back to the one that did the engine swap for help for some reason.
