    in the future try to do some research...
    but you will need
    mounts
    shift linkage
    axles from a 1990 integra
    cable tranny
    pr4 ecu(if staying obd0)


    soo where is the motor from??and is your car an si?

    Did he not just give you a list? Seriously dude, try searching for some of this shit. It's only been posted about a bazillion times. Do some research first, and then, if you still have specific questions, ask us. Don't expect somebody to just sit here and write out a complete "how to swap a B18 into an EF" manual for you...

    Your friend doesn't know shit. OBD1 is much better for tuning, regardless of whether you want to boost or stay N/A. Your car is wired for OBD0 though, so you're either gonna have to convert the car to OBD1 or convert the motor to OBD0.

    Whichever way you decide to go, Rywire can make a custom harness for you. Check them out: Rywire - Online Store

    honestly do you know what your doing???
    are you electrivally inclined and mechanically inclined???

    cuz most people that start swaps and have no idea what they are doing come back here selling unfinished shit or asking why the car wont run correctly(yes i WAS one of those people)

    you need to know exactly what your doing before you do anything

    and i would stick with obd0 its easier for you to work with...
    but obd1 has far more tuning capability

    ok if you search for my thread on ls into ef..you will find some helpful info...
    but basically you need to order a mount kit that will allow you to put a bseries into and EF....its a "conversion kit"(ebay has hasports,place racing,avid etc.)
    next you will need axles from a 90 integra..you will need to take the dust shields off of your hubs.
    you will also need to buy a shift linkage that will allow the bseries into the EF..(ebay has hasport linkages for fairly cheap)
    your car is an si so the wiring harness will work
    you will now need a pr4 ecu(once again ebay has tons of them,and DONT get a chipped ecu,the map wont be right for your car)
    thats basically the stuuff you need...
    theny you take your motor out,put a dent on the drivers framerail for the alternator pulley,bend the lip down on the rear crossmember for the rear bracket.and the motor should go in with a little convincing...

    again if you need help go on my thread http://hondaswap.com/hybrid-ed-ef-da/ls-already-covered-107521/

    I'm planning the same swap and they are right, if you just spend a little time looking around you will find the answers. If you want step by step this is about as good as you will get. http://projectcrx.wordpress.com/civic-crx-ef/ls-swap-109203/. Try that if it doesn't work just search project crx. There is a complete list in the b18a1 swap article right down to the tools you need. Once you read and understand that and have everything you need start the project. Don't forget nothing is perfect you will most likely run into problems, then that is when this sight comes to the rescue you will have a more legit question to ask with 'some' knowledge behind it.

    Hey guys, I'm coincidentally an avid Honda-Swap-er as well. Any questions that come up, theoretical or otherwise, feel free to let me know. In total, I spent around $1200 on the swap (including the engine).

    If you happen to visit my site (mentioned by pappaj, my thanks go to you), please leave a comment or two. It's good to know that my writeups are doing some good, and having suggestions is invaluable.

    Thanks again, and keep the swaps going!

    i spent 300 on my motor/tranny/axles then i spent 100 on mounts, so basically 400$ on my whole swap, only time consuming part was going from the DX wiring to MPFI.
