    of, u will also need obd0 injectors with ur distributor. DONT use the Si ecu, it will KILL ur engine, the fuel mapping's are WAY off. get an Obd0 LS ecu. also, a b16a cable tranny will KILL u on the freeway, u will be at around 5000RPM at about 65 mph. it will be good for the track, but track only. i suggest the LS tranny.u will also need engine mounts, for B series into ef, integra clutch and throttle cable, and it is always smart to put in a new clutch while the engine is out of the car.

    Ok he definitely WONT be at 5000rpm at 65(im assuming you mean he will be in 5th), he'll be in 3rd or 4th at that speed and rpm. Definitely NOT 5th.

    keep the ECU, maybe you might need it for a LS/VTEC swap in the futre..u never know...

    better for you to use the LS ECU on the stock motor...(90-91 integra ECU)

    AS FOR THE TRANNY
    trust me, keep the B16A tranny, you will accelarate faster than if you had the LS tranny.

    YES it will be reving higher on the highway while your just cruising....but that is a sacrifice i make and i am not sorry i did...

    PLUS if in the future you got the VTEC HEAD on the block....you will already have a GOOD tranny for your setup.

    Yeh i agree on the tranny. I would only use ls trans from turbo set ups.
