    you're going to need an integra transmission because the one that came in the del sol, if its automatic, won't work, and the transmission from the b20b is a 4wheel drive transmission and doesn't bolt up without a ton of fabrication

    this is not true. The only modification needed is the top mount for the transmission. ;)

    check in the swap articles,
    you'll need an ecu from a b series engine obd-1 engine, the B20 ecu would be best, followed by the b18b1 ecu.
    b series axles
    " engine mounts
    " automatic, transmission, hydrolic clutch.
    that should be all, simple swap. make sure all the wires plug in.
