Default How do I swap a d16z6 into my 1993 Honda civic dx 5 speed?

I am buying a 93 civic dx coupe with 5 speed manual. It has a blown 1.5l but I have a d16z6 with 5 speed trans and wire harness all out of a 93 ex with 69,xxx miles. I was just wondering if anyone could either post a link to a forum going into extensive coverage on everything you need to know on my particular swap or just tell me everything I need to know on this swap. I searched for days but all I can find are posts of people asking my question and people responding with "smart" remarks like "try using the search bar".....riiiight.

Well, that's about as easy of a swap as there is. If you don't know how to pull and engine and trans. Get yourself a chilton's book. It's green has a black del sol on the front. Yeah, seriously it will give you the basics as far as pulling the engine and trans out. Engine mounts, shift linkage will be the same, fairly certain the axles are too. Do you have the ecu for the z6? If not you need to get one it'll be a p28. You'll need to swap the ecu and engine harness. Everything else is straight forward if you've ever pulled out an engine and put it back in before. Swapping the trans is totally up to you. Both will bolt up. The dx has slightly taller gearing and will give a little boost in mpgs. The ex trans has lower ratio will give you more snap. If I was you while that engine is out even with only 69k on it replace the timing belt and water that way you won't have to worry about later on. If you let me know what your main concerns are I can try to help.
