    Hi all, I'm new here but was doing some googling and found your site and I think this can be the most useful reference for me. I'm going to be putting a B18B into my 93 EG Hatch (currently automatic, will be converting)

    This is the exact motor I'm going to order.

    I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what mounts I need. I'm going to include some links, I would love if you could confirm if I should buy these or not.

    I know I need an auto to manual conversion mount, I need to know if this one will work for my civic?

    I know I also will need some Integra motor mounts, figuring out which ones though is a REAL pain. I was going to order this set. Should I order it?

    My last question. I've had a heck of a time figuring out what brackets I'll need. I THINK I need this bracket, but I ordered this one which I think I don't need. can anyone confirm?

    THANK YOU
    -Oxygen

    sorry 1 more thing, can a GSR shift linkage (B18C) work with a B18B? I'm bidding on one but I'm not sure if it will work

    All Manual Civic mounts will work except the back transmission. Any B series shift linkage will work. But since you're Auto..
    .I think you'll need a different top trans mount too.

    If there's a recycler anywhere near you....go that route. New aftermarket will just cost you more and are useless unless you're going high hp.

    You'll also need accelator cable and half shafts from the Integra

    P4? You mean PR4? If so...that's OBD0

    P75 is the only ECU that can work for OBD1 LS without a chip (AKA Virgin ECU)

    If your car isn't a Si...you most likely need a different throttle cable. I had the LS for a while and used my Si throttle cable for it and my B16A

    You also need any B series shift linkage and you CAN use your original engine harness but if you can get the LS OBD1 harness....do it.

    I agree on the axles...you need B series axles for sure but you can get them for about $70 (each) at Riebes or some other parts store. And I feel its usually better then some of the used axles that come with swaps.

    I used the P75 in my 93 CX LS changeover. I had to change TB cable. Fellow I bought changeover said the other ecm would work, but I haven't tried it.
    My car runs great. Miles faster than the CX winnie motor and high geared trans it had.

    Never heard of an OBD1 PR4 What motor was that? The OBD1 92-95 LS is either a P74 or P75 (based on year/body style)

    Here's a good link for ECU identifying http://www.hondata.com/techecuid.html

    for the auto to standard conversion, i used the long tranny bolts with large nuts under the mount to space it properly above the transmission, works great and its an easy fix.
