    I just bought a jdm acura integra motor with 30,000 miles on it and it came with intake manifold, exhaust manifold, injectors, fuel rail, throttle body, engine harness, all sensors and ecu, no transmission. i am set on find a manual transmission for it now but my question is besides new engine mounts should i be looking at anything else before i attempt to get this motor swap underway? any concerns or problem i might run into? its a 1.8 dohc non vtech motor.

    any responce of knowlege would be greatly appriciated,
    Brandon

    i dont know if thats a good or bad thing but my intentions for getting the non vtech was to eventually turbo charge it and i have heard many problems when you force induce air into a vtech motor you run into aot of problems and alot of the time the vtech doesn't even work so i went with this motor so i wont have that problem when i decide to turbo charge it

    wow you can't take a hint. it's VTEC...

    dunno why but that is the #1 most annoying thing...

    I believe you're going to need a hydro B series 5 speed, of course I'm taking a 50/50 guess on this... and I usually blow 50/50 guesses.

    as far as mounts I'll let someone else guide you through that, or you could

    :search: ;)

    thats the dumbest thing i ever heard, but considering how you don't want a VTECH motor, i guess i shouldn't be suprised...

    if you know what the hell you are doing with the swap, and with FI setups then you won't have problems..

    I would advise YOU, to neither attempt a swap, or attempt to turbo a vtec or non-vtec motor...


    but to try and help...

    we need to know the year and model of your motor, what ecu you have, what year car you have, what OBD you will be running, etc etc etc...
