    Well I sucessfully swapped the motor in and I drive it regularly, but the passenger side axle is way to long and causes the car to shake at cetain RPMs. I am running a 90-93 Integra axles and I was wondering if there are any axles that are shorter and will fit into the cable b-series tranny. I contiplated not posting in this forum, because you guys don't do the b swap. I dident want to get flamed for posting an accord question in any other section, so any help would be appreciated.

    this is probably close to the right forum. i think general tech is where it belongs. dont repost, itll get moved if it needs to be.

    im not sure if the B18B1 axles are shorter, but thats all i can think of.

    I think the passenger side is similar in length, but there is something different between the cable and hydrolic axles (bot sure though). Thanks for the help and I hope this gets moved to the right forum :)

    yeah it's a little big, but it's the only place I could put it without drilling. As for the cover I just need to quit being lazy ass and just put the cover on it. Thanks for the props and heres a little picture of the tranny mount.

    This is the rear tranny mount kinda hard to see, but you get the jist. In this picture the mount need to be fliped the other way, I was just test fitting to see how it all works. I used the factory 90-93 integra rear mounting bracket. The brake lines on the firewall had to be moved up.

    Well I was first introducd to the car when I was 16 and it was my friend first car. I always wanted to due one up, but I never had the resorces. When I turned 21 I decided to reaserch the though again, I found the mounts (witch are very rare), then I found the car for $800.00, then I started building the motor and now I have my dream car. I just like to do stuff that is a little different then everybody else, but I love hondas. As for the shift linkage its just the stock accord linkage with about an inch cut off and the integra end attached to it. As for the wireing I had rywire use the stock accord harness and convert it to an obd-1 vtec harness. When I first got it in there (test harness) the was a problem with the wires going to the dizzy, but I fixed that and it started right up. Rywire made my engine harness and worked with jkob (before rywire and jkob merged toether) who made the sub harness since the accord has a different obd-0 the all the other obd-o cars.

    I would probably have the axle custom made, or modified.

    Nice swap :thumbsup: Describe the wiring a little.

    This is the right forum for an Accord related swap issue. [​IMG] I won't move it.

    Thanks I will check into the custom ones, but I would like to use a factory one so that I dont have to have them made everytime I need a new or uprgaded axle. I just asked about it being the wrong forum, because the accord guys dont use the b-series axles and I am not sure if the b-series guys check the accord forum. I guess it is the enigma of a hybrid.
