    do a b18b,why? Because you can reuse youre stock wiring harness(obd1 b18b)
    on b18a thats means : obd1 to obdo conversion(not legal)
    or rewire all the sensors to fit the obd1 harness right in the car.

    Seel it all separately and make your money back. Then buy an obd1 with a hydraulic clutch.

    Yea, sell the complete longblock motor to me for 400 shipped (had to throw out an offer). Seriously, email me if your gonna sell it with a price. bhj0887@yahoo.com. I don't mind the extra work.

    But to be honest with you if it's a 92-93 your good, its already obd1 and all you'd need is a hydro trans.

    92-93 B18A is OBD1 and you can use teh stock engine harness on the OBD1 LS motor.

    I tought 90-91=b18a
    92-01=b18b

    my error

    In fact 90-93=b18a(92-92=obd1)
    94+= b18b(96-01=obd2)

    if the b18 is a from 90-91 it is obd 0 and no conversion is needed to go in the ef... except hardware... (mounts, linkage, axels, etc), i dont see why u cant use the obd0 b18a in the eg.. i have a eg, i got a full 90 b18a for 100$ im rebuildin it in class in college, and all im doin to swap it in is use new injectors, and a obd 1 distributor and eather a p75 or a p74... and what ever plug connections need to be converted i will use part of the obd 0 harness.... whats the big dea?? iv talked to alota ppl bout it and said thats all i g2 do for it to work...
