    im thinking of ditching my mini me swap and going with a b18b. my question is will the b18 axles fit right in on my hubs? or do i have to swap the hubs out too? (what parts do i need) its going into a 96 dx hatch.

    on the swap guide, do i understand it correctly that ill also need the rear tranny and driver side mounts from a 99-00 civic si? or is that from whatever b series engine im using? (which driver side mount? upper or lower? my hatch has two i think.

    sorry if its noob-ish..... :)

    I'm sure the axles will fit, I dont know about the mounts but us the ones that came off the engine if ur puttin it in a 92-95 otherwise you'll need special mounts.

    you need a new back mount. you should be able to use the driver's side mount thats in your car already.

    Yes the axles will work, as well as the shiftlinkage. You need a 99+ civic si rear tranny bracket and the top mount also. And thats it.-paul

    FINALLY!!!!!!......... :D Thanks guys, i was really stuck on this one....


    tnsxsear - is that top mount for tranny too? or top mount on drivers side.....


    MrLewis84 - how do you like the swap? should i go ahead and do it or should i just go ahead and work on the y7/y8 mini-me?

    I think i'd spend less working on the mini-me, but i know id have more potential w/the b18b ........

    PS: gsr tranny or stick w/ an ls?

    If you got about 3000, you can get a b18b1 swap for about 1600-2000 at most local import shops, and just use the rest to get basics like an iceman intake, header, fuel stuff, than once you have everything, save up for a b16 head and go ls/vtec. Like me. in my hatch :D or maybe you can get a deal on a b18c1 swap for 3000.....
