Will a 1987 2.0 Si manual engine work to replace a 1988 2.0 si automatic engine in my 88 2.0 si automatic prelude?

Shouldn't be a problem. The only thing you want to make sure of is in the end of the crankshaft on the manual motor there should be a pilot bushing that centers the shaft of the manual transmission. This has to be removed so that the center of the torque converter on the automatic can go into the space.
