    3K is a decent price.....non OBD will have kind of a cream or milky looking connectors for various sensors etc and will have a resistor box for the injectors....non OBD dizzy will have a fatter cap for dizzy like the 90-91 integras.

    b16b is a type R just a civic type R not an integra type R. Oh and if they did convert the motor over to OBD0 then they, changed the injectors, distributor, and ecu. Also they might have changed the transmission to a cable type from a hydro type and if they did not change it you are going to need the new HASport mount kit for hydro trannies.

    it might also just be as easy to find an lsd sir crx tranny and while you have it apart it is also a good idea to check your clutch situation too. It will say time in the long run
