Can you put a 87 Honda CRX si transmission in a 89 acura integra?

I believe the crx si came with a d series engine, unless it was a jdm crx. basically if your crx has a single over head cam motor ( SOHC ) then it is D series which means no your crx tranny can not bolt up to an integra. Since integras are all B series engines or Dual over head cam ( DOHC ) usuall the b18a1 or b1 unless gsr .
