    Civic '79 Engine

    Purchased this 79 Civic without engine (the green car, not the yellow one). I would like to put an EJ series engine in this car because there is one available to me. Can someone tell me what, if any modifications are needed to install?

    The EJ engine should be a relative bolt-in. The only thing you may want to check is the engine to firewall mount. From what I remember the 1st gens mounted to the head and the EJ was to the transmission.

    What body style do you have, the CVCC or 1200? If you're interested in a '79 CVCC motor I've got one available cheap.
