    The innovative mounts will work as well. Just make sure you get mounts designed for this particular swap. Don't try to ghetto rig your factory mounts to make it work, that's a bad idea.

    In a USDM EF, your only options for a B-series swap are aftermarket mounts unless you want to do a lot of cutting and welding.

    JDM Civic with ZC is EF3 - JDM Civic with B16A is EF9 - different chassis - still need aftermarket mount kit - B16A will not bolt into EF3 chassis

    No. You need to use LS axles/midshaft.

    If you use a Hasport kit, you should be able to use w/e mount is on there.
    They are all the same(B-series). LS might be cheaper though...

    The mounts have thicker bushing to reduce vibration so it should fit and do not use stock mounts they will break. What is goal with the b16? NA or FI
