    You need a hydro transmission. Hydraulic fluid is what moves the clutch on your car. Cable are older models.

    B18C can be a JDM GSR or a Type R but there is a price difference.

    B18C1 is USDM GSR
    B18C5 is USDM Type R

    If you are swapping a B-series motor.....Best bang for the buck is a GSR trans (no LSD stock). But Type R has LSD and some JDM GSR's and B16A's come stock with LSD too.

    You need to have a dollar amount for the entire swap......down to intake and header.....and then I can help more. It can be cheap (varying based on your mechanical abilities) or expensive.
    I've done the cheap way with swaps and now doing the expensive way to do a swap lol. But I'm K-swapping :ph34r:

    You have alot to learn. Cable is a cable wire, hydro trans uses hydrulic fluid to engaged and dis engaged.
    B18c what?

    And you are redundant. Did you read my post and feel like reiterating what I said....but in a-hole fashion??

    Or did you not read at all?

    There are lots of nOObs.....how the hell do you think anyone gets started? He was honest and tells us he doesn't know much so slow your roll a little.

    You can get a JDM GSR running in your hatch for that budget.

    For a easier swap......buy one that is complete.
    It can be cheaper to part the thing together until its done but that can be a pain in the ass too.

    Look into a reputable JDM Engine Importer and buy the complete OBD1 swap (you're OBD1 already so stay there).
    Get the complete longblock (engine harness, alt, starter, TB,etc), transmission, axles, the shift linkage, all the mounts, OBD1 P72 ECU.

    Do you have an USDM Engine harness right now? If so.....what one? That can make things cheaper
