Default Can u swap a h23 motor with a d15 motor in a fourth generation Honda prelude si?

I have a 94 prelude si which threw a rod right through the block my only option finances wise is a d15 motor out of a 91 civic hatch si. My plan is to just transfer everything from the hatch to the prelude. I just need it to run again. No racing or hot rodding. I also know I may have to get a new wiring harness. Any info would help out greatly . Maybe even some pros and cons of this idea.

it would cost more money to put the d15 motor in the prelude to run right and to make it fit

just go get another h23 motor

Curiousteen is right. You're gonna need atleast besides the engine a d-series transmission, axles, ecu, harness, custom mounts, shift linkage and not to mention the extra time. You should be able to pick up used h-series or even and f-series(uses same mounts and transmission as your h23) for less then swapping to a d-series.
