    I've looked everywhere and I cannot find how much to cut off of a DA linkage for a B16 swap I am putting into my 91 civic si. I do understand there is wielding involved, and its not a problem. I just cant see in spending $150 for a linkage when I can wield it myself. Thank you in advance for your responses.

    I was hoping to avoid that since I am not sure of what to look for. As far as proper fitment.

    i mean once you install the shifter and the linkage to that the other end you cut and weld you can see where they need to bolt to

    I can verify 2 3/8 in. should be cut, I did the same on my ef, just remember to mark their positions BEFORE you cut. Also I learned that the metal is pretty soft so I had my welder on low cause I nearly blew through the metal.

    Great thx for the info. I'll keep the setting low and I assume I would cut from the middle section of the linkage.

    Yes, I used a straight edge to find the straightest part of the linkage and centered the cut there.
