    k got a 92 hatch d15 non-vtech. just got an integra ls motor with 30k on it, b18b1, whats required for the swap? im sure theres a thread somewhere but i just didnt find b.c i r retard. axles, ecu, shift linkage?, gsr ecu would plug right in correct? also want to take a vtech silenoid i have and pop it on the ls, is it tech ready? motor should drop right on the chassis with the integra mounts correct?

    no no no. Head is not built for vtec has non vtec cams. GSR ecu is made for vtec. vtec solenoid will not work on ls head. If you get a vtec head say b16...you can have a vtec motor.

    Don't think so...Harness will have extra plugs and ecu will be looking for more inputs than what the ls engine will give.

    I honestly don't know. I would say the ls axles should work but I don't know if spline count for the hubs will match.

    Basically with an ls swap you need to use ls stuff. You will need the ls ecu, harness and trans if you want to just swap in the ls motor. If you want to make an ls/vtec motor you will need to mix and match. For ls vtec you will need harness with vtec, vtec head from a b series engine and possibly a gsr transmission (ls trans will work but gearing will kill the power)

    I am not positive and if I am wrong I assume someone will correct me soon.

    well heres the good thing, i have a b18c1 to work with in a crx. im prolly just gonna use those axles. thats why i was wondering about doing the vtech swap. ppl ask me why i dont drop the c1 into the 92 hatch. motor is very unreliable due to previous owner. i dont have the money to deal with it right now. the ls has 30k on it.

    Understandable...do what you can to get the ls engine swapped and running...then go from there. If you want to change stuff later it will be much easier to work with stock components.
