Default Another motor swap question...

Car:99 civic ex
Orig. motor: D16Y8
Motor received: D15B w/ 3 stage vtec

It's obviously not a plug and play set-up.
Doe's anyone know of any writeup's I'm overlooking?
Or can someone walk me through the easiest way to perform this transplant?

It was originally supposed to be a d16y8 swap again, but jdmenginedepot said this is the jdm motor and that it will bolt up and plug in. They fail.
The whole intake manifold set-up is completely different.
Can I just swap intake manifolds/fuelrails?
Will the ex harness plug right in with no failures?

I'm an audi/vw/bmw mechanic. This is a side job I'm doing for my brother in-law.

Any in-sight is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advanced,
-Keith (gruppe1tuning)
