    as far as I know.....when doing mine....into a LSI...all the fuel lines, fuel pump and fuel filter are the same......haven't had any issues with them....

    pretty sure you'll basically need a donor car, me and a friend have recently completed a d15(carb CR-X) to B16 conversion, the whole loom.,fuel lines and tank,brake and hub setup all had to be swapped over from the donor car,so i'm assuming with a Civic DX you'll be in the same boat,hope this helps.

    dash loom

    fuel tank

    fuel lines

    fuel tank sender unit on top of tank

    and modified the clocks to fit

    ye i done this swap to ,then upgraded to a b18c . Love the Dx as a base car.

    if you want an easy swap, the dx is not the right shell, if you use an lsi you only have to change the looms, its a right wanker changing the fuel lines and tank.
