New guy with some questions!

Hey guys, i recently bought a 1995 Civic coupe DX Auto. I got the car for pretty cheap as it needs a head gasket. I have a chance of getting my hands on an Integra SE that has has a GSR motor swap done to it. My question(s) are:

Can I do the swap from the SE with the GSR into my Civic with most of whats available in both cars?

If not what would have to be purchased to help complete this swap?

Lastly the main reason i bought the Civic is for gas mileage so im wondering if this swap would negate the whole fuel economy thing?

Would the GSR swap into my DX be comparable in gas mileage and im guessing there are many that have performed this swap that can share there input.

Basically im weighing in on wether I pick up this Integra Se w/GSR swap and swap things in or just do the head gasket on the DX.

When weighing in guys keep in mind that the Civic is auto and im not sure if the shifter/cables/ECM/trans/axles and whatever else are interchangable between cars.

Lots of parts are interchangeable.
Breaks, Suspension, Motor and Tranny, hell... even the integra interior would fit with a little modification.
Youd get more power output from a 1.8L DOHC VTEC than a 1.6L SOHC NonVtec motor but your gas milage would suffer a tad bit.
