    what does he mean when he says "full swap"?

    parts needed:
    mount kit for b series into ef- $100 for cheapO's off ebay, $200 to $300 for good billet mounts (azracemachine.com or hasport.com need conversion for hydro tranny- see * below)
    integra axles- check local parts house
    integra rear mount bracket- should come with integra motor, if not junkyard.
    shift linkage for b series into ef (ebay)- $100


    the b18b is obd1 so you will need:
    obd0 to obd1 jumper harness ($110 from rywire.com)
    *the cable to hydro tranny conversion mount (or get a cable tranny whichever)

    i think thats it but i may be forgeting something.

    the b18b is a good engine to swap into an ef. good for boosting and doing a ls/vtec. leaves you with a lot of options. its a pretty easy swap to do, as long as you can trust the guy and know hes not selling you a blown motor.

    DA integra, yours is an si so i believe you need 90-93 axles.
    and yes, thats the rear bracket. should be with the engine, maybe not.

    if its a b18b then its obd1 or 2. you should go look at it before attempting to buy it. do you know the guy personally?

    damn, if its a good motor then thats a good deal.
    before you go ripping your old engine out, take that one to a shop and have it leakdown and compression tested. just to make sure. that way you know its good.
