    your D-series tranny will not bolt up to your B-series swap. You can get a hydraulic tranny with y our swap instead of a cable tranny. You don't have to use a cable for your swap.

    you pretty much have to use a hydro b-series tranny.

    if you wanna be cheap and dumb, get an ls tranny for $400. or if you want a kick ass tranny, shell out a g or so and get an itr.

    lsd=fuckin awesome.

    no its not.


    there are 2 types of transmissions: cable or hydraulic. cable transmissions have an actual cable that runs from the clutch pedal to the clutch fork. hydraulic transmissions have a hydraulic line that runs from the pedal to the master cylinder.


    however, there are 2 types of SHIFT LINKAGES: cable or solid. cable linkages are found in preludes, while civics/integras have solid shift linkages.

    no b16 ever had cable shift linkages. pre-92 b16's had cable transmissions. post-92 b16's had hydraulic transmissions.

    duh.

    look on the head, on the front (header side) on the top-left right above runner #4. there'll be a li'l circle kinda thingie with a number in it. that's your year. it'll say the last 2 digits of the year (i.e. "90", "89", etc)

    your car is hydro.

    going to a cable would not only be an uber pain in the ass, IMO, its a leser design.

    you will need a b-series hydrolic, preferrably obd2 b16a

    yes. but it'd be cheaper to just buy a 92-up complete swap.

    by the time you nickel and dime the shit together you will have spent more than it would have cost for the correct engine to begin with

    I thought he said there was a transexual in his car. DOn't be a fucktard. Listen to these guys they know their shit. They will flame you if you reply with "I got the cable tranny anyways so what to do?"
