    why? you already have a good platform to start with in the car. Save yourself the cash and build the a2.

    but if you must, all you'll need really and truly is the gsr longblock. you can use the b16 tranny (but you shouldnt), and youll have to use the wiring harness that's in there.

    oh, and youll have to re-pin your ecu to work with the p72 if you use the integra ecu. you should jus get a jumper and an obd1 ecu.

    b16 tranny is fine, just not as good for gasmilage. or you could just get the short block and dump your head on it. the cams arnt as agressive but you get the 1.8L.

    I dissagree, I love my short ratios, and it is perfect with my motor. The only thing I ned is an LS 5th, LSD, and 4.785 final drive.

    While I agree, the LS 5th gear would be nice, I have a stock b16a2 and a2 tranny and doing 90 MPH to and from Detroit a few weeks ago I still made 28.xx mpg. LS would probably get you 30-35 mpg.

    i'd suggest going with just a gsr shortblock. buy one with bad rings, put in ITR pistons and bolt that to your b16a head. then...go with cams and mill the head and you'll make 175whp+.

    Personally I'd build the a2 instead of buying a whole new engine and spending the time to swap it.

    But if you decide to swap, use chet's suggestion.

    A Quaife LSD for the B16 tranny is what? 800 dollars shipped? I'm sure that's cheaper than trying to find an ITR Tranny...ask civicious there...he knows first hand.

    As far as I know the GSR never had an LSD in it, you're thinking of the Type R transmission.

    Personally...I would stick with the a2 tranny and get a Quaife LSD.
