    alright guys im starting off with a 91 si. the head is blown in the d16 so i picked up a b18a1 figured i could do a reliable ls swap. ive got the ecu, mounts, shift linkage, a friend has helped me with my wireing harness. i still need a transmission, clutch, and flywheel. im thinking an ys1 and ideas? also the front end was backed into by a truck so now i need a hood, bumper cover, drivers headlight and corner lens. interior is really clean all stock. ive managed to pull it all out and clean up the dust, dye the carpet black. exterior paint is faded origionaly black not sure on color any ideas wanting something original but with some flair. thanks

    If you're looking for used replacement parts try here ---> Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

    If you have Hasports EFB1 mounts then any cable B-series transmission will work, shorter gearing will give you better acceleration and an LSD would be a good idea too.

    Hasport also makes an EFB2 kit for use with hydraulic trannys and hydro-cable adapter.

    On the driver side shock tower there is a little 1x1 sqaure hole, just below on the frame rail is where you need to massage with the BFH, dont be bashful with it.

    or just put on a smaller belt i think a 30 inch belt will give you clearance without having to hammer the car

    It's not that big a deal, I just did it last weekend. Just make sure you have a good sized hammer, when I did it the first time I had to lower the engine in a couple times to test fit it for clearence, ended up with about 1/8" or so.

    It was alot easier to lower the engine in after I had removed the front engine mount bracket on the crossmember, along with the battery tray of course.

    There is a bracket on the front crossmember (right in front of the radiator )for the front mount that does not get used. I would cut it out before u put the motor in.
