These cars were built in the period where Honda started standardizing more of the parts, from what I understand. Unless the HF had a different series engine than your Si (perhaps D-series instead of B-series), it should just bolt up. I have never done this yet. I'm following only what I read here, on Honda forums, in books, and such... But as I understand it, the transmissions within one generation Civic, within the same series engine, are easily swapped. Anyone care to correct or corroborate me?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
