    here is the driver side mount placement it was thin so i added more metal its all done for the mounts now putting the motor back in and doing the axles the axles are from the 84-87 civic the hub pline is the same as the 880-83 civic the trans knuckle is diff but the inside is the same change out knuckle to b16 i used 84-87 civic hub its easy. the contrl. arm is what im doing now i added 2 inch length with the hub knuckle off the civic 84-87 bigger brake Note: use the JDM 88-91 civic intermediate shaft not 90-92 integra its bigger the axles shaft are 17 inch both side with out ends. the 84-87 civic is 1.7 inch wider than the 80-83 civic thats the lower contrl. arm extenchion and strut. this is what i found out for now. ill post more as i go on.

    That mount looks like it would eat children, but as long as it works I give it :thumbsup:
    Do you think the Brake Master Cylinder is gonna fit with the larger engine in place? those lines look pretty close.
