    I own a 1990 Honda civic SI hatchback. I am looking into buying a JDM b18c complete swap off of ebay. I need all of you expert advice about what i will need to complete the swap and if you think this ebay auction is a good deal. I'm not sure i will be able to do the swap myself (due to lack of tools/garage) so i may have to hire my mechanic to do it. If ANY of you know any good honda shops in Denver Colorado it would be VERY appreciated. Thank you for all your help.

    Transmission 5 Speed

    you'll need to convert the transmission from hydro to cable, OBD or change the ECU
    and, change the wire harness
    90-93 integra axels, mounts to fit a b series motor in. custom shift linkage
    and making sure the motor runs right once its in place

    thx for noticing that tip, i will probably go with another motor of same type from a more trustworthy seller. How hard would it be to convert the transmission from hydro to cable? i swear my mechanic told me i have a hydro clutch but i must be crazy. So i will need the shift linkage and to convert my clutch? anything else? Im very new to this so i could use all the advice any of you have.

    You have no choice but to convert the car to OBD1. This is quite simple, go to www.rywire.com and buy the OBD0 to OBD1 ecu jumper harness and also buy the OBD0 to OBD1 jumper harness for the distributor. This way you can retain your stock SI harness and then just wire in the vtec.
    As far as converting to hydro, you don't have to. Just find a first gen YS1 GSR tranny which is cable.
    I can get you the mounts and the linkages.
