Should be very simple in and out, the rear trans mount will probably give you problems bolting back to the new engine, but a little muscle and patience you should be fine.

Hello!

I did a D17A2 vtec to D17A JDM vtec, used back as much electronics as possible as well as the ECU. Running fine for a couple of weeks now.

Cheers
