    you can't use a civic throttle cable on a b series motor, you have to use an integra throttle cable, they are all the same except for the 94-01 gsr's i think.

    Wrong!
    You CAN use a D series cable on a B series, just gotta make it work.
    If you have money, buy an integra cable, if you don't- make the D series work.

    We used a torch to heat the D series bracket and bend it backwards and put it on the rail.
    We've had a post here before that has pics in it of different setups for using D series Tcables on B series.. someone used zipties FTW!

    my throttle cables was 6inches 2 short for my b20 swap, so i just ripped off the 6inches of coil around the cable it and it fits pefect and looks like perfect best part is that it was free,

    I dont know why all the probs maybe it's just the 5th gen but my b series had no problems with the throttle cable what so ever... just went right in.

    I spent like $30 on a 97 ITR throttle cable from the local Honda dealer. I felt okay about spending thirty bucks, but I would have bought one of those brackets had I known they existed, to save fifteen.
