The B-series engine will not adapt to the transaxle that came with your Civic, therefore the entire powertrain, i.e. engine and transaxle, must be swapped as a unit; normally, however, the entire powertrain is what is meant when "engine" swaps or availability of used "engines" is discussed with respect to front wheel drive cars.The stock Honda motor mounts, axles, transmission linkage, and other auxiliary parts on the B-series engine (as well as the ECU, of course) will adapt to the Civic. The corresponding parts that came with the stock SOHC D-series engines will not fit the B-series, however. Unfortunately, most of the available engines are removed from the car without any of these parts, and often even the wiring harness has been destroyed, so the parts have to obtained by either scouring junkyards or purchased from Honda at substantial expense. If at all possible, an engine with a complete set of these parts is greatly to be desired over just the engine itself for this kind of swap.If the engine is complete with these parts, very little else is needed for the 1992 Civic.For more info use the link below
