    Ok im putting together my B18a1 and B16 cable transmission.

    heres what i have after a ton more of google time.

    I need any B16 half shaft.. The difference is.

    Hydro B16 = Male half shaft.

    Cable B16 = Female half shaft.

    Im also seeing a lot of people saying to use the 94-97 Integra LS
    or GSR half shaft but i havent seen any proof of this working.

    With a B18a1 Engine and Cable B16 Transmission a 90-93 Integra LS half shaft WILL NOT fit.

    The 90-93 Integra one is the one you want...

    You sure you're not using an automatic 90-93 teg halfshaft? Is your b18a1 from an automatic teg?

    I got an auto B16 once and I had to actually grind off some of the block for the half shaft to bolt up properly.

    Have you tried to use 90-93 half shaft? I know when I did a swap for a friend; B18A1 into a 92-95 Civic with 94-00 LS transmission; the 90-93 shaft didn't work(it was slightly too high); and swapping in a 94-00 LS/GS halfshaft fit in like a glove.

    What exactly didn't work? According to the Acura parts catalogs, the 90-93 Integras all use the same half-shafts including the 92-93 B17 GSRs.
