    Since ive now got the car started without the plugs connected, i figure i can just take it somewhere to get those figured out. What i need to know now is if i can use a throttle cable off of a 94 b18c on a 95 b18b since my 93 civic throttle cable wont work? Also to hookup the exhaust do i just need to like create my own pipe to go under the car to the muffler since the flange is cocked the other way?

    no you can't use a gsr throttle cable it will be too short. i know this from experience. find an ls throttle cable.

    try it this way. go to your hardware store apick up a piece of metal that is about 3/4 inch wide by 1/4 inch thick and that is at least 5 inchs long. Then take the mounting bracket off the intake manifold and using a marker put a dot on the piece of metal that you bought, drill 2 holes, bolt the mounting bracket on. then bolt it to the intake manifold at the right position. total cost and time, $5 and 10 min. (more time to drive to store) ALL in all your just extending the bracket over witha a home made contraption. I did it on my B16 in a 93 cause the cable wasn't right

    fuk all that bullshit...go to your local acura dealer and pick one up for about $10.
    when i was doing my swap i simply went to the Honda dealer and got a new throttle cable for a 99 Si.
    this way you don't have fabricate anything and you'll be sure to have the correct par that you need.
