DC2 and EH2 chassises

ok I have an EG civic (EH2 is the chassis code on my hatches vin)

are the DC2 chassis mount locations the same for that chassis and the EH2???

because if so... well this calls for a PULOVR style scroll down post

evrything is correctly mounted for the K series engine (which sits on the other side of the engine bay) and it's mounted in a DC2 chassis (94 to 00 teg) my question is are the mounting points on the chassis' the same... because if so that will be the swap I do..... it is crazy though

they are 20 pounds lighter (including mount kit) then a B series engine.

anyways does anyone know if the mount location points on the chassises are the same or not?

well, if you read up... you can use most of the mounts from a teg right in the civic platform for any b-series swap, which means the chassis side is the same, it's the engine side that differes between D and B blocks. If anything... very minor mods will be needed. But I imagine they'll release a kit for the 5th and 6th gens too.

if I were you, I'd wait for some time so someone else tests the alignment of the kit... cuz all these new kits will have kinks, and guys will blow axles left and right until they get it worked out. It takes a long time to get the motor into factory-like position inside a new platform.

how would you align the motor perfectly when you have no idea how it sits in the DC5 platform? and what axles could you possibly use?

all good questions i would answer then

if i had a access to a machine shop i could make new axles so they'd be the perfect length too
