    ok i had a 90 civic hb 3 years ago and i swapped a zc in it..i sold that...well now i bought a 91 civic hb std. for 500 bucks...with not a spot of rust!!

    i just bought a b18a1 and i ordered mounts and the shift linkage.. and i also have the si knuckles. and i have a .60 trim t3 t4 turbo and intercooler with piping and greddy bov

    but what i really need is a cable tranny!!!!

    what ecu will i need? ( the car is getting turboed, so idk if that matters or not?)

    what axels will i need?

    will i have to do any fabricating to make it fit?

    and i need more turbo parts!

    if you can help me that would be awsome

    Nice find.

    Ok, at least you've done some research.
    You can use a hydro, but youll need the hydro to cable adapter from Hasport.

    PR4, (comes in OBD0 and OBDI) I would do an OBD conversion and run OBDI, there are better tuning programs for OBDI. Many people use Crome because its free and many shops are familiar with it. Do a lot of research about proper tuning, and youll be glad you did.

    DA Integra.

    :no: Other than pounding a dent in the drivers side frame rail for alternator clearance.

    With some mount kits you dont have to do that, and some you do.

    you'll also have to bend/cut/smash/melt/etc. the front trans mount bracket off of the crossmember. your trans will contact it if you dont.

    just pund a dent under the shock tower,gring of the front tranny mount on the front cross member,and pund the lip down where the tranny bracket goes on the rear crossmember,and i think you have to convert to mpfi,im not familiar with std's:D
    and you can sell the hydro tranny for more than a cable tranny costs
