    I have a 90 DA integra, the car has 200k miles down and the engine is not the greatest anymore. I was thinking about swaping in a b20 but i dont want that anymore.

    at first i wanted to just buy a long block and a trans seperately, now that i know a little more im confused even more. I know that i have a cable trans and that its OBD 0 and most engines are OBS 1 or 2

    what is a good swap for my car. and i would be willing to convert from cable trans to hydro if its worth it.

    im not looking to make tons of power but some to have some fun and i want to build the car for auto-x so a lsd trans would help

    I also dont have tons of money to put into this car

    its a common swap into integras, its already obd0 and a cable trans, should bolt right up and then all you gotta do is a little wiring for the vtec to work, but just to let you know its a heavily disputed point of which is better between a b18a/b or a b16a because the b16 lacks torque and the b18 lacks hp but the short geared trans should be good for auto-x, you could also upgrade things on it easily such as cams or just the general i/h/e

    yea you would end up doing that, you'd probably be able to sell that trans to someone on here hopefully and get money for a gsr transmission, or even sell it on ebay, gsr transmission is your best bet to solve that problem, or if you don't have your heart set on a LSD you could throw that money toward swapping out the final drive on the b16

    i need a LSD since im building the car for auto-x. but for the gsr tranny i would have to convert to a hydro. how much work is that? and are there any kits availible for it or could someone tell me what all i would need, a DIY would help aswell.

    thx

    http://www.hasport.com has a cable to hydro conversion kit, as well as instructions on how to install it. They have a boat load of information about what would be necessary for the swaps, like what's compatible and what's not.
    Also, for axles, I'd check out http://www.raxles.com since they make just as good axles at a lesser price.

    whats another way other than buying the kit, i dont want to spend 300 on a kit. could i find someone that has a dc integra and just get the parts from it? and what parts does it take?

    You can get a b20 and not worry about the obd1 or obd2 part.Just use the parts off your LS and change it to obd0.As for the gsr tranny you can find a cable gsr from a 92-93 da gsr,no lsd though.
