That's interesting. Thanks. Here's a guy on EM who says he paired an 89 HF trans with a VX engine in a fourth gen Civic body. So he would have had the stock fourth gen mount to match the HF transmission, I guess. I wonder if he had to fabricate mounts for the VX engine or if the engine side mounts were the same 4th to 5th gen?
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.
