I'm pretty sure the D15Y5 is NOT from the Si. That motor is from the Civic VX which was designed for fuel economy.

Most of the stuff will be a remove and replace affair. The wiring harness will have to be replaced unless you don't mind cutting/splicing up your own masterpiece. The ECU from the Y5 would be needed.

I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting something but that's all I got for you.

for the SWAP~
PROS:
- Awesome gas mileage
- ~10 HP, ~7-8 TQ boost

CONS:
- Very Poor power/cost ratio... Money is better spent on elsewhere (Z6/Y8 head swap will yield greater gains)
