I think you will need to change the loom not 100% sure but I think thats right...

Any photos of your crashed car? :p

You need to tell us exactly what model you want to swap into. Usually only minor loom changes are needed, although sometimes your engine mounts need to be moved.

im gonna go for a 98 or 99 coupe SR single cam vtec.. on the hope that this will b easier to change the engine cos im thinkin the mounts should b the same or similar and the looms should only need minor change.

my old SR Coupe had a VTI engine but i brought it like that, i heard it wasnt a difficult swap.. i now have a proper coupe VTI... show me pics of your crash i destroyed my passanger rear quarter panel on my Coupe VTi and every body shop told me it wasnt worth repairing and would cost me atleast £2000 to fix then i found a garage that done it for £800 (including parts and labour and spraying the panel to match) ;)
