Lean burn Honda Civic sedan: 93 Civic d15z1 swap into LX 4 door (VLX)

I haven't seen a build thread on this swap yet so I'm going to start one for mine. Keep in mind I have 4 or 5 projects going on so if I don't update every day don't worry I will post as much as I can. As well as with my other projects. Enjoy!!

Donor car- 94 civic Vx. Bought in va drove flawlessly. After I got it home I noticed the twisted frame. Bad inspection on my part my loss. Frame shop said if he pulled it the welds would come apart. Car is all stock except for the header and air tube. Engine was supposed to be rebuilt and has a new exedy clutch.

Subject car- 93 lx 4 door. Owned for 2 years. Stock 285k on the odometer. Has rust. Already installed Vx wheels. I drove for a while and was able to achieve 47mpg average with eoc. However the engine recently started running funny. I've been planning this swap for some time and it's time to get started
