Yeah if you can make it fit and install a heavy duty trans so the new engine dosen't screw up your trans, make sure all hoses fit the engine before you "drop it". You can rent a engine lift for farly inexpensive prices. not sure exactly price wise.

yes it can be done but you need a vast knowledge of car how to as well as many new items, like wiring harness, computer, and motor mounts. among many other things also many modifications for connections will be required.

There are various Honda and Integra engines that will interchange with varying amounts of work and expense, some of the best are swapping Integra B series engines into Civics.As someone above stated, with enough time, money and cutting and welding, you can basicially cram any engine into any car. I once saw a Civic on ebay with a rare Nissan engine/transmission patched into it and there is a semi-famous Ford Mustang that has a Nissan Skyline engine.http://www.hondaswap.com

Yea it possible, but it would be easier & cheaper in the long run, to stick with a Honda engine. There have been Nissan SR20DE engines in Hondas & Mitsubishi 4G63 engines in Hyundais but Honda makes some great engines and one of them made for a Civic was the B16A engine.
