    You should really use search, but I'm gonna help you out. All your engine mounts will work accept for the tranny mount I think. Your axles will come from a 90-93 integra, and your shift linkage you'll have to look for because their custom. I got my axles and mount kit from streetimports.com. I got my shift linkage from JHPUSA.com. Also, I have a DX tranny in my garage if you want to go that route. I'll sell if for $200 plus shipping. I took the casing off to inspect the gears, and everything looked flawless. There were no metal shavings or anything in it. When I but the casing back on I re-sealed it with a fresh seal of high temp rtv. Let me know which route you are going to go.

    to put a B16A in your DX, you will need to purchase an aftermarket mount kit (like Hasport) and shift linkage, you will need Integra axles (which ones depend on what intermediate shaft comes with the engine) - you will need to convert the wiring on your DX engine harness from DPFI to MPFI and use that on the B16 and had wiring for VTEC, knock sensor, etc. - you will need some exhaust work - with the B16A1, you need the B-series transmission and the VTEC ECU like PR3 or PW0 - if you purchase a complete B16A1 swap, you should get the engine, transmission, axles (may or may not be any good) and the ECU - you still need the aftermarket mount kit and shift linkage
