2012 Civic LX (1.8L) K-swap

Hi everyone. I have a 2012 Civic LX Sedan, and it has a roasted engine (lost all oil). I'm putting together a K24 setup for it, nothing fancy

I'm wondering if anyone has any information about what would be needed to physically install a K-series in this model. I'm not sure if I just need the mounts and axles from the SI model, or if I also need the subframe too.

Also, does anyone have any information on which transmissions can mount up? My hope is that I don't need to get the SI model's exact trans, because that will make things hard.

The fuel, wiring, and everything else I can figure out on my own. I'm just making a shopping list for the junkyards that I'm checking, and I don't want to miss out on anything.

You can put any tran of a manual CRV or Accord of another model, not exactly must be from SI. If the one you get is 4x4 you can override the output to the rear differential, and maybe you need to modify the subframe (I have no idea about this) I would recommend getting a 4x2.
