Is it possible to transplant a c27a into a 1987 sedan 5 speed? if yes would you have to get a new ecu and a different transmission too?

Absolutely possible...

Youd need the engine (duh), ECU, Igniter Unit, and Vacuum box...

Theres some wiring involved but its should be fairly simple and straightforward.

Also helps that you have a 5 speed as the auto trannys ARE different....

^ yeah the 5 speed would be the best bet since the 2.5 Auto needs a signal from the 2.5 ECU for lockup....so you COULD keep a 2.5 auto, but it may never lockup :sadwavey:

A 2.7 auto could theoretically be swapped in too so long as you wired up the TCU as well...

You can go to the junkyard and pull them out from there. Look for a 88-90 Legend.
