The chassis would also help as air box mounting points may be different. If you did an engine swap into a chassis that didn't come with that engine then you may have some fab work.
Looks Ek with 3 stage so shouldn't be a problem.

Hey Dave,

There was an engine swap done but I don't have much details.
I showed a Honda guy today and he said it doesn't look vtec to him.
Anything I can look for to confirm on the engine itself?



Check and see under the PCV hose if its 1 or 2 solenoids, I can see one from your pic but the hose is blocking a bit , 3 stage vtec has 2 solenoids

There were the two solenoids. So I guess it was a 3 stage VTEC. Car is sold now tho.
