    Try searching. this has been done to death.

    Motor, trans, mounts, linkage, some wiring needs to be done. Like 6 wires or so.

    Iam not sure if you have to do a MPFI swap or not. But mainly its a few wires on the ecu need to be swapted and some wires for the dizy need to be moved to match the plug.

    Go to rywire.com and then you wont have to do wire switching.

    Really now B series swaps are simple stupid. do a search and dont just look at one page read everything on the swaps. Read up on peoples swaps and learn something in stead of people telling you what to do.

    This is really a simple task....If its a complete swap over ( of having everything ) including the mounts....its a slap on with a few wirings....

    NOT to be out of range, took me 1 whole day morning to night from swapping a d16z6 to a b18c1...into a 94 civic ex...slap on using the original ex harness just had to wire the knock sensor thats about it....

    Note: Do it yourself, learn from the mistakes, you'll do better next time....:rolleyes:
    good luck...

    simple things will be problems,
    since the b18a1 is obd-0 while your car is obd-1 search about this one.
    auto to manual is intensive enough it's worth the work to keep it auto.

    lol if you want Manual... I would sugges selling your car and finding the same one in manual.. I've heard its quite difficult to change tranny type... especially if your not entireally sure of what your doing.

    Well you heard wrong because it's not very hard at all to convert an automatic to manual..

    Linkage/shifter assy, pedal assy, the clutch should be hydraulic in that car so you'd need the master cylinder/lines/slave cylinder on the trans. You will probably need an ECU too, but if you're getting the whole changeover that will come with it. I think I might be missing a couple things, but that's the majority of it. The wiring should be about the same.
