    Hey since I'm planning on dropping the motor into my 91 LS Integra do I need any mounts? I Am planning on using the B16a1 cable tranny. What else do i need? Is it simply plug and play? VTEC WIRES?

    You will need to add the wires for VTEC and the knock sensor, but you do not need a mount kit. The B16 cable tranny will work fine. Are you sure this is the swap you want? The B16 is great in a Civic, but kinda torqueless for a heavier car like the Integra. I know the DA came with a B16 for 3 years, blah blah blah. There is a reason it only lasted 3 years and the B18C(1) lasted 7...

    Just make sure you know what you are getting before you buy. Good luck.

    All of these three are better options than the B16 in that chassis.

    Ive done the b16 swap in my 90 integra, if your looking to go cheap(meaning no turbo) id ssay go for the b16 for a daily driver its plenty fast enough, plus with I/H/E and some cams you will happy.

    There's more to a ls/vtec than throwing on a vtec head.
