    Hi I got a 92 gsr off a friend with a little front end damage for a $1000 which i thought was a great deal (came with exhaust,headers,tailights and a deck) Anways I started the swap in my 92 civic dx with an si engine. I pulled out both engines and when i put the gsr engine in my civic and connected all the wires, etc I went to hook up the transmision and found out the shift linkage doesn't work. So I thought I would take the transmision from the integra but that didn't work either. The civic is hydraulic while the gsr is oldschool and has the cable set up. Which I thought was wierd so if anyone can help me that would be great.

    Shortening and re-welding a shift linkage definitely is not 'hacking together' a linkage as long as you are able to do it right. What do you think all the aftermarket linkages are? A shortened version of the OEM linkage.. it's not hard to weld a couple pieces of pipe together.
