    Call this place, Lokar and ask them to make one for your application.... this is my best guess.

    Here's their website

    you can do some monster garage work on it...hehe..i did a swap on my crx and i got a cable that was too short so i cut a section out of it at the top of the threaded part(just dont cut the cable)its a tough job but its possible...i would just find out the cable you need and get a new one or used one

    is it too short or do you just have to pull the clutch arm up? un route the clutch cable and put it on then route it.

    This happened to me. You've got two choices with the stock cable... Well, now that I mention it, I had to finagle the LS cable I recently bought, as well. ;)

    1. Unbolt the cable bracket from the tranny, put the cable through it, and in the clutch actuator arm, and bolt it back down. Voila.

    2. Put a floorjack and a block of wood or something under the clutch actuator arm, and jack it up enough to get the cable installed. Let the jack down. Voila.

    we took the cable bracket off the trans, flipped it over upside-down, and bolted it back to the trans, only using 2 of the bolts... it gets it down where you need it

    What kind of swap are you doing?? my B16 with Y1 LSD swap into a 89 Si Hatch used the stock clutch cable which fit perfectly.
