    dont use a B18A
    that is quite possibly the worst idea ever

    get an OBD-2 B18B

    swaping a B18a into a Ek is not worth the time and effort.

    get a b18b or b18C

    :concur: x 2

    that motor is def. not worth the work it would take to swap it into an OBD II car- go to hmotorsonline and order a b18b or b18c1- you'll thank us later

    :concur: x3.


    Someone tell him why it isnt worth... Ok I will...

    B18A1's were only produced in two OBD forms, OBD-0 and 1. The B18B1 were produced in 3, OBD-1 (94-95), 2A (96-98) and 2B (98+). So with this said since your car is a 98 its OBD2A, just get a 98 or newer Integra motor, or for 900 from hmotors you can get a CRV motor which will go directly in via some help form a mount kit and shift linkage mod. If I missed anything, let me know.

    well the crv motor swap will also require a hydraulic trans that isn't made for AWD- but otherwise :thumbsup:
