jdm Vtec-E into 92 civic VX (eg)

after a few hours with help of a mechanical buddy I've removed my jdm D15B 1.5L sohc vtec (equivalent to 1.6L usdm D16Z6).

Parts using for JDM Vtec-E D15B swap:

VX intake manifold /TB/AC belt/Alt belt
EX TB/plastic intake air-box w/HKS green sponge filter
various silicone hoses including 4 radiator
96-00 EX oem top 1/2 EM 4-2 painted w/ceramic flat-iron color
ceramic airmass bottom 1/2 EM until find stainless steel or oem bottom 2-1
Innovative Aluminum Polished polyurethane mounts
new fuel filter(often overlooked) + oil naturally changin after 500 miles
new TB & h2o pump.
Sea Foam into cylinders after removing spark plugs/and gas tank
Billstein shocks & Tein luxury springs (back seems too low with now)1.1" drop
Apexi Vafc (gen 1) with Boomslang plug & play ecu harness 2tune
used flex-a-lite style multi-bladed fan for better radiator cooling.

I will also use my dremmel to clean out soot built up in the exhaust port side of the cylinder head. cuz i <3 my dremmel it's my honda-tech name btw
decided not to send into extrude hone the IM.

Pondering a urethane front lip for aero efficiency, or a fat strip of plastic

Taking out the *****-pin where the shift linkage meets the back of the engine block was tough btw. Also the Crank Pulley resists my 10gallon compressor. Will try a chain-wrench if i can find one long nuff (napa had 1 not long nuff).
Pics soon... of empty engine bay
