    ok i have my swap done on the rear convertion on my 97 civic lx now what i wanted to know is i got the kit from a 93 civic si i have the cable i took them to the shop because i don't have the accommodations to lift my civic off the ground and get under it like i need to. they told me at the shop that the si cables are to short for my civic, but i did some research on the website and i found some people are using the gsr cables and any civic from 92-00 on there cars. was the guy at the shop just being an ass or is he right? i put the cables next to my car and it seems long enough to me does anyone have the wheel base of the 92-95 civic si so i can compare to mine thanks guys

    You are probably going to need the e-brake cables from a 99-00si to make this happen.
