    you can put it in a rex, but it would be some work. vtec controlled by a switch is just plain lazy, be prepared to order special shift linkage (more than likely), beat out a small area where the alternator sits in the engine bay, make sure your mounts will line up, and hopefully you find someone whos familiar with OBD2 wiring, because Im not :-( if your determined and have patience, you can do it

    btw a 90 si probably has a cable clutch and the gsr has a hydro tranny, so your gonna need a swap kit for the trans. try posting in the hybrid forum next time, you more likely to find help thats related to your question

    You put this in the EW forum which is for 84-87. I moved your thread for you.
