    i'm in the same boat man. this website has lots of info, but sometimes not tons about every subject. new motor mounts. and you won't know all the exact problems until friday night around 9pm what kind of washer you're missing/can't find. and the hardware stores are closed.

    motor mounts linkage and axles are all i can think of

    you should be good with p28 , you need to get it reprogrammed for dohc and disable the vtec or however you approach it, your tuner should help you out

    sweet, so pretty much all i will need is: motor mounts, b18 hydro tranny, axles, a new turbo mani, a new dp, and a chip, and of course the engine! which one should i buy ive been lookin around and saw that the b18b1 comes w/ 140HP and 125tq, and the b18b comes w/ 130hp?? and the b18a1 (obd0) 130?? i'm thinkin aobut gettn the b1? what do u guys think??

    you also need shift linkage, and you'll probably be more happy with the b1

    let us know how it goes

    Hey Everyone,
    Well I Joined This Sit, So That I Can Get Skooled Up, Get More Info, Opinions And Suggestions On What I Should Do With My Ride???

    I Got A 90' Hb*si, And Its Great! Very Clean And Very Maintained. The Only Thing Is That The Motor Isnt All That Great? Previously Owned And Never Really Put Money Into Ti. Now, I Know That I Can Fix It By Little And Find The Little Problems From Time To Time W/ The Car, But I Want To Avoid All Of That With Asking Too Many Q's And Getting Different Stories/ Judgements?

    Basically...i Wanna Swap Something Rather Than Fix It? I Cant Make Up My Choice On What Motor? Zc, Dohc Zc, D15, D16, B16a, Or Simply A B18b?
    I Wanna Keep It Original Jdm, No Turbo! And No Notrious!....all Motor Baby! If Anyone Can Give Me Some Suggestions, Please Do So? Money Should Be A Problem Just Want Something Nice For A Change.
