Your best bet would be to go to an auto dismantler. They have an interchange book that will tell you what engine may be interchangable with yours. There is also a company that sells used engine longblocks from Japan that are low miles that let you pur parts on it and go. Unfortunately I can't remember their name or if they are even in business still. They are usually around 35 to 40 thousand mile motors because Japan requires vehicles to meet certain standards or the engine gets replaced. As an example in my 78 Honda Civic 3 door the 1200cc 4sp assembly was replaced with a 82 Honda Accord 1800cc 5sp assembly and it putts right down the road with better than 40+mpg on the open road. The auto wrecker can tell you what will be able to fit or not and for what years. Some of them will say engines will not fit because the smog is different, buy it also. Complete engine assemblies work the best, smog and all, you just need the correct engine mount placement and trans mount bolt pattern to be the same, the rest is just routing the plumbing and electrical. Good luck, RAC

http://www.dsmtuners.com/forums/420a-drivetrain-tech/230980-mt-swap-info.html That's a great forum to start looking at. Honestly, a lot of people will tell you it's not worth the money, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. It's ultimately up to you, after you've done the necessary research, to decide if it's worth it. Good Luck either way.
