    ok so my d15b7 pooped out on me and i had a 97 b18b1 still laying around. im low on money and my wife isnt about to go burning up a clutch so its staying auto. all the wiring is done, brakes and suspension is all swapped but what i need to know is what mounts do i need for it to bolt in correctly? i have the issue of the trans mount being too far toward the core support and about an inch too far toward the frame rail. i know this swap has been done and people have posted saying they got it figured out but never said what mounts they switched to. thanks for any help.

    yes but a few people have performed said swap and started talking about getting the swap to work but never said what mounts they used. if I figure it out on my own I'll be sure to share the info unlike people in the past.

    i have 0 first hand experience with autos... but i've 'heard' that you can take a manual tranny mount ans flip it upside down or something like that. Do perform more research on it though.
