    Hey all iam a new member here. K this is what i need help with, i have a 2000 civic si and i am trying to put a 1990 Gsr A1 Ls vtec in to it.

    This is how the engine is built. I got a

    1990 block
    99 si head
    scunk 2 headers
    H22 injecters
    b17 tranny

    so the problem is the wireing is different from the my civic si.

    if any one done this kind of swap before, what do i need to do to get the car up and running.

    Any little help would be great.^_^

    What harness are you running.

    Getting that tranny to work is going to be a bitch because it is cable and your car is hydraulic. I would go with a diffrent transmission for sure.

    as long as your useing the 99 si head all you have to do is drop it in and plug it up, and just for a note there was no 90 modle gsr they didnt come out untill 92:D

    Any 94-2000 b16 or b18 transmission will work in your car. Get a stock 1999 or 2000 Civic Si or Ex harness off ebay, and you should be good if you are using a 2000 Si head like you say.

    Any B-series hydraulic tranny.

    And then get a wiring harness that is the same make and model of your head.

    The conversion sucks ass, I used it for about 1 year on my civic/ys1 tranny, the position of the slave cyl on the tranny with the kit installed makes it so that water gets trapped in the bore of the cylinder causing pre-mature failure, in 1 year I went through 2 brand new slave cylinders plus the original one.
    I would only recommend this if you arent gong to drive the car in the rain or on wet roads, or if you really can't find a hydro tranny and all you have is a cable.
    Its not worth it to have to put in a new slave cyl every 4 months.
