    he needs not to do the swap, whats involved with getting that motor into that car would cost more than him selling it and buying a newer full swap from someone. not to mention it will make his car well beyond illegal in most states

    yeah dude...
    what's wrong:

    tranny, wont mount- different positions
    tranny, won't engage clutch- different method of engagement
    ecu, wont plug in
    wire harness, wont plug in
    injecotrs, won't work with wiring

    the list goes on.

    sell it, get a 96-98 b18b1
