    where you from? There is a place up in toronto called Luckystar, they will get you the full swap for 1450 Ie (engine, ecu, harness, tranny, etc), then you just need the linkage and the mounts (which should work out of a 90 teggy). I got mine from there an almost got my 88 si on the road, engines are JDM imports (mine still had the jap oil filter lol), and guaranteed 30-50000 miles. Used Auto Parts Used Car Parts Truck Salvage Yards Japanese and Import Auto Parts Lucky Star Japanese Auto Parts they dont list pricing on their site, but when I called them 3 months ago, thats what they were asking. might be an option for you

    You need cutom mounts, Place Racing and Avid make good mounts for a good price, youll need to either buy a pre-fabbed shift linkge setup from Hasport ($150) or shorten you own from a DA Teg, I would highly recommendthe pre-fabbed linkage its worth the money. You will also need the axles from the DA Integra, a PR3 or PW0 ECU (If its OBD0) Which Im assuming it is, it will make things much easier for you if it is. Then some minor wiring for vtec, and a BFH to a few places for clearance issues.

    i second ef's opinion about the linkage. it's very worth the 150bucks to not do the whole trial and error process. plus you get the new linkage that connects to the shift rod. older vehicles will have some slop in that.

    Yes the axles from the 90-93 Integra are what you want. And you wont need to buy the vtec sub-harnnes if the motor comes with the engine harness and if not some guy on here sells the vtec sub-harness. Monotech is his name.
