    What do I need for the d16z6 swap in my 92 hb dx. Do I need to replace motor mounts, drive axles, shift linkage what do I all need. I was going to do a mini-me swap, but i think that i would be better off just swaping in the d16z6. Any help would be awesome thanks alot.

    You don't need all that...

    Take out D15B7, bolt in D16Z6, then wire for VTEC and drop in the Z6 ECU, and you're set.

    so the only thing I need is the motor, trans and ecu, it bolts right up to my stock motor mount and i can use my drive axles and all of the other stock parts on my car.

    you dont even NEED the tranny. but, the z6 has better gear ratios than your current one. but it would bolt up to it if you wanted to use it.

    What about going from auto to standard? Will there be any issues with the neutral safety switch in the clutch pedal?
