    if your ef is MPFI then all you'll need are a set of motor mounts and shiftlinkage. if it's DPFI then you'll need the conversion to MPFI as well.

    Parts you'll need from your teg : engine along with all sensors and distributor, trans, ecu, intermediate shaft, axles, knuckles (if your ef was a 4speed, if it was a 5speed you can keep your civic knuckles.) if your radiator is in good shape, you'd be better off taking that as well, as it will have the correct size inlet/outlet for the B's hoses.

    If you want to keep the auto tranny then yes you can keep that shaft but if you are wanting a manuall then get the shaft that comes with that tranny.

    The teg radiators are taller than the ef radiators. It's not gonna fit... The size difference in the inlets and outlets between d series and b series aren't so much of a difference that a leak should be a cause of concern.

    axles yes, midshaft no...

    it's taller yes, but it only takes a small dent or some minor cutting to make it work. and it's probably not going to leak as he says, but anytime you pinch a hose down before an inlet the possibility of bulging increases. you can get by with the radiator in your ef, but if it's hot there and you drive like the rest of us, you'll want to upgrade the cooling system eventually. why not do it now that you have the engine bay clear and a free radiator?

    The ef already needs the lower shock tower bang'd in to clear the alternator pulley, the front motor mount bracket on the crossmember cut off to help clear with downpipe issues, and the rear crossmember needs to be notched slightly for the rear mount bracket... Now do you really think the car deserves more denting and cutting away if it's not a nessecity lol... Plus, tons of people aren't having 'bulging' problems and/or having cooling issues with the stock radiator.

    run the integra radiator and hoses,
    cut the top one to fit(about an inch off of where it meets the waterneck on the motor,and about an inch off of where it meets the bottom of the radiator,,then you will have to put 2 dents in the hood shell(it is not visible from the outside
