    I'm doing a swap on my 1991 civic dx and putting in a B16a.. i was told a 1990 integra shift linkage must be used.. but can i use a 1994.. theres one on ebay.. i can't really afford much ... as well as ..for the conversion to v-tec should i use the hasport conversiona and the original harness as well?? n e ideas???
    hasport linkages are too expensive so..

    stuff costs money to do

    you need a si engine harness from 88-91 with si resistor box, then you can get the hasport wire adapter thing for 75, there is no oem shift linkage that will work for a b series swap into a ef civic, you need to cut and weld some b series shiftlinkage or buy afterarket stuff,

    you also need after market motor mounts, plus i dont know what ecu you plan on running unless you got a full cable b16 swap,
    it is a cable swap right?

    you cant just plug in the si harness you have to convert your DPFI harnes to MPFI,

    if your talking about not having money, then dont do this swap, because you are gonna have to spend money to make it work

    your gonna have to get aftermarket mounts hasport, hcp, etc
    your gonna need to get hasport linkage, or your gonna have to modify the integra linkage
    your gonna have to get 90-93 integra axles
    your gonna have to crx std or si hubs
    your gonna need to probobly get new brake rotors and pads for those hubs
    your gonna have to pay an exhaust shop to match the b16 downpipe to your exaust, or you mine as well get new exhaust, you dont want that b16 breathing through a straw.
    and unless you trust that dude in japan your gonna wanna get a new timing belt, waterpump, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor, plug wires, oil and filter, coolant, new clutch, honda MTF, your looking at 1000 to roughly 1200 bucks in parts.

    these isnt something you tie in with a rope, pop a couple broomsticks in the tranny, wire up the shifter with a coat hanger, rush over to your girlfriends house, and then off to the street races.... then again i could be wrong... give it a shot

    My swap has cost over $3000 so far and I havn't installed it yet

    B16a Sir 1 complete changeover from hmotorsonline.com - $2531
    ^^Includes mounts and hubs
    Misc Parts (timing belt, waterpump, spark shit...more shit) - $230
    Clutch (exedy organic racing) - $270

    Total: $3031

    If you don't have at LEAST $3500 to spend DONT ATTEMPT THE SWAP!!!
    (I say 3500 because you have to conver from DPFI to MPFI)

    Just wire the vtec yourself: http://www.geocities.com/teampimports/b16a.html

    just get a first gen b16(swap) for 1g and buy mounts(150), shorten shift linkage, the swap should come with axels,linkage and ecu, id say about 1400, plus time. its not that hard dpfi to mpfi is simple,
    -joseph

    oh,yea if you car is a 5speed dx then the hub will also work

    WRONG!!

    The swap will cost at the very least about $3000

    -hasport mounts are the only ones worth spending money on
    -an engine for $1000 will be shit (expect to pay about $2000)
    -you have to have welding equiptment and knowledge to shorten an SL
    -PLUS you have to replace lots of stuff on the engine (add about $200 min)

    you dont

    in response to crx's comments:

    I don't think that your set up will be reliable in the long run. I'm not saying that it can't work, but my advice is that he shouldn't expect to be lucky enough to find good quality b16 with a good clutch, timing belt, water pump..etc for only $1000.

    Its all just a matter of reliability. The more money you spend on the swap (and the higher quality components you buy) the more reliable your car will be in the long run. If you have a REALLY good hook up than I can understand how you could spend so little money. However, if you used all ebay parts and some no-name mounts you can't expect the car to last forever.

    shift linkages arent cable or hydro dependent. So it may very well work. I dont know give it a shot.
