Finaly I dig out my old love. It has been sleeping few years now. I repaired old EL engine, but i have bought ET1 engine and transmission from 2gen prelude. So how does ET1 and transmission fit in 2G. How much modifications?

Sadly it won't fit without a lot of work. Definitely doable, but you're looking at custom mounts, axles and front crossmember notched to clear the exhaust manifold. I believe there was a post somewhere in here wayyy back then about somebody making his 83 hatch with EK (same mounts as EL) to work with A20 or something. Hopefully the pics are still there

I found it! https://www.3geez.com/forum/2geez-tech-performance/57373-engine-swaps.html

It's a B20A but same mounts and amount of work needed for the ET1 on an '83
