Default 1999 Civic EX swap to JDM 1.5 question?

I have a 1999 Civic EX with a 1.6L VTEC and unfortunately the 1.6 blew a rod through the front of the block, and around here (MI) its very difficult to find a decent junkyard engine for this car, and the couple i can find in michigan and surrounding are between 900-1500 ($900 for a very low compression engine) anyways... I found a JDM 1.5L VTEC for $745 and just curious if it will bolt up to my US civic, and if it will need any kinds of mods to work and run right (ecu, wiring, sensors, etc)

also if it will bolt up to my 1.6L tranny(AT)? any help or advice is appreciated

side note: cars body and interior is in extremely pristine condition, which is the only reason im choosing to save the car and engine swap instead of scrap it

It will bolt up to your tranny no problem as long as you have the proper automatic flywheel. you don't need to swap mounts,wiring harness(i don't think so atleast) only the ECU which can be found for 100 or less on Craigslist. Also that price is very expensive... I can go find a complete D-series swap for about a grand. Keep looking around for a better deal.
