OK, I just found out about Hondaswap, but I'm not a newbie to engine swapping in general, just to EK's. I am helping a friend with a swap into his 98 HX, and we have some issues. I have done lots of swaps into 4th and 5th gen civics, but this one is looking less cheery. Here are some issues that I need help with: I was under the impression that any b-series trans would work. The only tranny we were able to find was a ys1 cable trans w/HASport's hydro conversion on it. However, the HX has a hard line slave cylinder that doesn't appear to be able to flex around to fit onto it. Is there any remedy for this? Second, I was told that the pass. side mount (trans top) would work w/ any b-series trans, but now that I am looking at the two, they are clearly different. Will I need one out of a GS-R, or are we screwed? Third, I got the L-bracket from a gs-r, but yesterday someone told me that I need one from a 99-00 Si to use a b16 block in an EK, is this true? Finally, it doesn't look like the engine harness comes off on the pass. side. Is there a way to remove it, or is it intended to remain on the car while the motor is removed/reinstalled? I've searched all over and can't find any good answers to any of these problems. Please help me, as his car is in my garage and I don't want to get too far into taking this apart just to find out that we're really screwed. Thanks!
