    a ctr is obd2, there are a few sensors that are not on your original harness, so it takes a bit of wiring.

    1, yes it will fit
    hasport.com for mounts and installation instructions...
    2, a cable B series trans, found on imported motors, or 2nd gen integras

    3, computer work removes the limit

    the question is not whether it will fit, the question is, how comfortable are you with rewiring your engine bay.

    thank you for the info....i am going to assume then that the best way to go is use the b16a series... the swap package i am looking for has to have a 5 speed trans ...any suggestions on where to "shop" for... best prices i guess with best warranty

    hmotorsonline is the place to go. most of us that have swapped got our motors from steve, and in the end, best customer service and quality of product. if that means i have to pay 100ish more dollars for a quality product, then i will.
