    really similar to that swap minus hooking up VTEC and the butterfly valve thing on the intake if they even hooked it up in that writeup, i didn't check.

    You may have an issue if that transmission is cable as opposed to a hydro one. Either you convert the car to work with it, get/make an adapter, or get another transmission.

    My opinion its easier if the car is already a manual and the new engine is also a manual.

    Basically you need
    Mounts, aftermarket (maybe the del sol mounts for he B16 im not sure),
    Axles, 94+ integra, pre 94 wont work.
    Shift linkage, aftermarket, or I think you can use the linkage from a 94+ integra,
    Radiator hoses I'm not sure of but account for some small parts that may add to the cost. Changing the timing belt may be a good thing to do since its out.

    and whatever you decide for the transmission.


    Don't forget the proper ECU.

    also, if you're keeping you're AC and power steering theres a little extra work involved.

    If you've got a B18B1 then it didn't come out of 93 Integra. B18B1 came in the 94-01 models. The 90-93 had the B18A1.

    well make sure its OBD1 and find out if the tranny is cable or hydraulically actuated.

    This one is a cable type, and hydraulic is what is in your car now.

    Lots of people use their stock radiators, they work quite well, even when building and engine with lots of power. Used the stock radiator for my H22, and on my friends turbo z6 he didn't have any cooling issues

    yes. they have the same spline pattern, refer to the swap reference a little more.

    o yes an hydraulic has the arm out like this and the slave cylinder bolts to the transmission to push against it.
