    Ok I got a half shaft from a local junkyard which came from a 94+ Integra(manual transmission). I tried to fit it on the b20 block but it just doesnt want to fit up. Im not to sure if my b20 is auto or manual. Should it matter if it is or not? I need to know why it doesnt fit. Do I need a half shaft from a auto Integra? Any help would be nice and greatly appreciated. Thnx in advance.

    My buddy put his on my motor and it fit fine. Then we tried mine but it didnt fit at all. Only 1 of the 3 bolts lined up and the others werent even touching the motor. I went back to the junkyard and the guy tried it on a b18b motor and it fit fine. So I dont know what the deal is. Im so confuesed and pissed off cause I just want the swap done before the snow starts to fall.

    If it's a B20B then the IMS should bolt up, auto or manual, they are essentially the same. I believe its from a 89 Integra or possibly 3g Prelude.

    I have a 95 gsr with a b20z block and i had no problem with the swap. If thats a 94 and up to a certain year b series inter.shaft (manual trans), it should bolt right up.

    No. You know what part you need. Ask around on these boards for it. Good Luck

    my freind had just done a 94 ls swap into his 92 si and try to use a auto inter.shaft and he ran into the same problem. Only one hole lined up but he didnt run it like that. hope this helps you.

    Auto and Manual IMS's are the same. Same Part# from Acura.
