    Here is what I got to drop into my 00 civic HX.

    97 b18b complete longblock

    4-1 DC header

    GSR shift linkage w/short shifter

    ITR clutch and flywheel

    rear 99-00 SI mount bracket

    Del Sol AC bracket

    Ls starter

    axles and half shaft

    harness conv. obd2-1(do i need this?)

    98 ls ecu

    I know I need a ls tranny. Is there anything else that I need. I need to know. I'm pretty sure I got most of it. I was reading in one of my books though something about a throttle cable from a 94 integra ls, and upper radiator hose from a 94 integra ls, and a lower radiator hose from a 94 del sol vtec. Do I need any of these. Please let me know. I need to put this new engine in quick.

    Do you want to keep the car smog legal? If so, the 1998 LS ecu WILL NOT work because of the immobilizer. To keep things smog legal, you can have the immobilizer removed or get a JDM LS ECU. I swapped an LS turbo in my 99 civic and I have a CEL because it thinks my car has VTEC. I'm currently using an SI ecu but I have already ordered a 94 OBD1 LS ECU along with a conversion harness. My recommendation is to buy the conversion harness, buy a 94 or 95 LS ECU and just switch to OBD1. OBD1 is better than OBD2 and you would get more power. It won't pass smog though in California.

    Is there anything else that I would need other than the conversion harness and the obdI ecu? Thank you so much for you help. Also I live in Indiana where they don't care about smog crap. Would there be anyway I could talk with you online about this or maybe even talk with you over the phone. I could really use some good feedback from someone who has done this before.
