    im not positive but they may just bolt right in, if not then you need to take the mounts off of your ef seats and put them on the ek seats, just like if you were to buy a aftermarket seat.

    yeah he is on the ball about this....

    you just have to adapt your bases and sliders to the seats

    or use your bases with the ek sliders

    or use the whole ek setup and drill new holes and nut/bolt them in(like aftermarket seats as invisible said)

    but before you go do any work take the ef seats out and sit the ek seats in just to see how the height is....;)

    ok well that wasnt too much for a supprise...^_^

    as i explained above you will need to splice the mount setup...

    but did you sit the seat in with the ek mount setup or just the seat in?

    and before you go spending hundred of dollars on racing seats perhaps you should look for some alternatives :mellow:

    see the good thing about honda's are that there so compatible so if you go hunt for some seats of the same years as your ef then you may be able to find a better fit...not quiet as sexy as the ek seats but still a nice alternative

    and just for a forenote next time you wana start a new topic you may just want to use the search function

    (my seat question)

    swap the brackets. the whole assembly from one seat to another. your ef brackets sit lower than the ek brackets, thats the main reason the seats sit high.
