Swap: Vtec engine into OHC Type I
Friend has a OHC 99 1.5 model run more than a lakh kms. We came to know about a crashed VTEC which may be up for sale as parts.
Here goes the questions:
1. Are the engine mounts the same for indian VTEC and OHC type 1 1.5?
2. What all should be included with the engine?
I am thinking,
complete engine, gearbox, driveshaft, ecu and wiring harness.
What should we look for in the engine?

A friend of mine had bought a pre-owned VTEC which was a doctor owned vehicle and looked in pristine condition and had done only 48k kms. Some 10k odd kms later, when had to rip apart the block and found that pistons and the rings were fried. The next thing- we were unable to source the pistons from Honda showroom here. It took close to 2 months to put the engine back together.
However,since you mentioned that the car is accidental so it might not be in cranking condition. So you can start with the basic things, like checking the engine oil and the coolant reservoir etc. It'll give a fair idea of how the car has been maintained.

Getting parts for the Honda's is not such a big issue. One does not even have to approach the showroom guys . Such is the activity going around in the tuning circle.

Brakes (very imp) and the Speedo too. The suspension differs too in more ways than one.
