Nowadays anything is possible but it's definitely not a "weekend" project. It's take a lot of work, research and preparation to drop an i-vtec (a.k.a K20) engine to an older civic. You're going to need more than an ECU and wiring harness to get the job done. It all depends on how deep your pocket is, cause it ain't gonna be cheap, a K20A2 engine alone can cost up to 5K.
