    Hello,

    I'm doing a B16 Sir1 swap into a 91 Si hatch and have a couple questions before starting the project.
    I received the B16 yesterday, with Sir axles and shift linkages. I know the axles will work, what about the shift linkages? Since its JDM will it be reversed?
    The B16 is supposed to be 1st gen (milky white connectors, 2 O2 sensors, different intake manifold), but I found a grey connector on the back of tranny just above axles? is this normal?
    Also noticed black RTV sealant around tranny case and on distributor side of engine cover. Sign of something?
    B16 also came with LSD, I checked the axles holes and could see right through - normal, right?
    Thanks for any information,

    You need mounts, try HAsport. You will need to modify the shiftlinkage, or get a pre modified linkage. The sealant could be that they put a LSD tranny on it, and yes that is an LSD tranny. No the motor isn't reversed, just the wiring harness, other than that everything else is the same. The one plug, who knows. is the tranny cable? Should be a Y1 or YS1.

    Yep, tranny is a Y1, but I don't see LSD on it, that's why I made sure I could see through it. One weird thing I found is that the tranny serial # (on a gold sticker) had the end cut off.
    I know the motor is not reversed, but if the shifter is the same it means that when you drive in JP 5th and Rev are on driver's side?

    There are several gray connectors on the OBD0 SiR engine. As long as the Distributor connectors are white, you're set.

    Because he can see through the tranny. If it was non- LSD there would be a bar going across.
