    I have a 91 civic hatchback and i have a b18a1 built and tranny. What i dont know is how to do the swap, its my first. I know i will need new shift linkage and axles but what i need to know is if the half shafts will transfer from the old tranny to the new tranny and is there anything else that i need to know about this swap?

    you will need to do the DPFI to MPFI wiring changes using your DPFI engine harness

    you will need a B-series aftermarket mount kit

    you will need a modified shift linkage

    you will need 90-93 Integra axles, one left and one right, along with 90-93 Integra intermediate shaft

    you will need to swap out your STD knuckles/hubs for knuckles/hubs from 88-91 CRX DX/Si or 88-91 Civic DX/Si/LX/EX

    you will need a lot of exhaust work

    you will need to take a hammer to the inside of the driver's side frame rail to make clearance for the alternator
