    alright, im in progress of swapping my "gas saver" freekin 21 hp Hf engine out and swapping in the B17A1. Heres the low down, i bought a 92 GSR from my friend that he wrecked.. slid in to a ditch and riped out the strut mounts. anyway, i got the car for $550 and from the info i gather from this site (this site is a god sent by the way) im going to use the GSR axles, my question is, are the GSR hubs going to fit my HF? i ordered my jumper harness and mounts on saterday (9-24-05) so they should be here soon. im going to shorten the shift linkage, but what else is there to do? [​IMG] this is my first Vtec swap and i can use all the info you great ppl can give me. thank- Jason [​IMG]

    Paint the car and engine bay before U put in the motor, looks a lot nicer. Wish I would have. Have FUN!

    The GSR spindles WILL fit, but there could be some positive camber issues. Get an adjustable camber kit and roll out.

    You should get 89-91 CRX/Civic DX or Si hubs and brakes. You can also use 89-91 Civic EX brakes. You can use 90-91 Integra spindles; they have bigger front brakes, but they will mess up your camber a bit. I have them on my HF and my front camber is -1.5R, -2.0L (lowered 1").
