that is a TOUGH swap I am told. If you look at the driver's side motor mount, the older D series engines like your's have a weird weird motor mount compared to the more modern stuff.

there are a surprising number of 86-89 acuras out there which all have DOHC which give 125 or so horsepower and are a lot easier to bolt in. They have the same motor mount your car has I believe.

For mileage, you are probably better off with the stock engine you had - they are good engines generally but only have 80 or so horsepower.
