    Right I have an 1997 EK3 (1.5 LS) And Want to put a proper engine in her :).
    I want to use the Civic VTI 1.8 Aerodeck as my donor car as i can pick one up with low miles for a good price.

    Got a few questions:
    Can this be done without too many horrible problems?

    Will a Teg Gearbox be able to replace the standard Aerodeck Box as the ratio's are long and all Motorway'ish :( ?

    it is no different than any other B series swap (im pretty sure the engine from the aerodeck is the same as the GSR... so you will need to wire up for VTEC and the IAB)

    and yes the integra tranny will work

    the GSR has slightly longer gears than the B16 tranny... you can get siether one with an LSD... so its petty much up to you
