    What do you guys think i should do with my swap..
    I have a 90 civ. hatch and I want to swap to a Gsr Motor....Now I want to stay with the gsr hydro tranny....
    I know Hasport has that Cable to Hydro shi*, but im not too sure about it...
    Has any of you guys ever installed one of these kits on their 88-91 civic? How Is It....?..
    I called hasport and they said that the conversion itself without the Mounts cost $200.oo... should I just get the whole motor mount kit for $460.oo or should i just get the levers for $200.oo... :huh:
    Heres the Link to the mounts....Clickyyyyy....

    Thanks

    I had the conversion kit. It was teh pimpin'. Worked great. I read on honda-tech that someone said it made your clutch have a shitty feel, but they're morons because mine felt FINE. It's a great buy, IMO.

    Just buy one from Hasport. Honestly, it's just one less thing that could possibly go wrong.

    Personally I like the feel of a cable tranny better. Hydro is smoother but it takes some getting used to for quick shifts. I have trouble shifting fast when i switch from my 88 crx to the 05 civic. just a difference in feel though

    I was looking at getting that kit but funds ran a little short, so I ended up getting rid of my hydro tranny and picked up a cable tranny,
    I regret that now.
    plus I know that a couple of people that have that kit and really rave on it.
    best of luck let me know what you think of it, I still might look into getting the kit and another hydro tranny.

    Hey if you have access to a torch, some metal, and a drill you can make one of those convestions your self. Just look at how HA sport made it, it's so easy, I did my own too on my 91

    I can get u some pic's of mine but it will b awhile, what I did is in a issue of Honda tuning they had an awsome pic of the HA sport one and I copied it but I just used some 1/4" steel & a 1/4" steel rod that was threaded at the ends and used some stock 17mm head bolds into the vibration mount holes on the tranny. If you get a good pic of the HA sport one u can see how they did it and just copy the style.

    He probably used normal b-series swap mounts. Theres no way without a milling machine that you're going to make your own mounts. The cable-hydro conversion shouldn't be that hard to make however.

    Although...if it were me, I'd sell the GSR tranny and just get a cable b16 tranny. You'd save money and have better gear ratios. Just my $.02
