It depends, earlier model integras had the 1.6 zc motor. If it happens to be a zc you have no worries on making the motor fit. it will bolt onto a d series tranny as well.If you are lookign to swap a b series motor however (b16/b18 etc.) you run into a slightly more complicated situation. You will need many new parts suck as motor and tranny mounts,integra axles 91 or up i believe. new b series shift linkage, b series tranny , wiring harness, throttle cable,new ecu computer ans so on and so fourth.A Zc enigne swap is more efficient if you are looking for a bit more power to your car, it will save you money because you will not have to buy new parts such as the ones i have listed. Whatever route you take good luck with your swap.

Can i swap an engine from a acura into a 1994 Honda civic lx?

Yes. It will fit. If you stay around the year 92-95 engine and car models you don't have to change much with your wiring harness which is OBD1. And 96 - and up year models are obd2. And since your car is OBD1 and ( For Ex. ) want to use a 96 - and up engine models then you would need a conversion harness or just swap out the whole wiring harness. But using a conversion harness saves more time and is way easier.
