Hello and good heath to all, I am making my first post and begging for guideance and information. First I have a 89 integra 5sp D16A1. The motor is bad. May or may not be buildable. Previous owner (son-in-law) ran it out of oil. I am looking to make a project car out of it. I realize that, for durability and availability I might be best off going to a B series. I am thinking B18C5 with transmission and all. This would be a hydralic trans if I understand correctly what i have been reading. I am concerned with other posts i have been reading in that it sounds like i would be best off with a cable trans (and engine to match). which engine am i best off with, the d16a1, b18c5, or are there better choices? What else will I need to come up with to make the fit? I will stop the questions to keep from leaving too long a post. Thanks in advance for any and all information.
