dont use a B18A
that is quite possibly the worst idea ever

get an OBD-2 B18B

:concur: x 2

that motor is def. not worth the work it would take to swap it into an OBD II car- go to hmotorsonline and order a b18b or b18c1- you'll thank us later

:concur: x3.

Someone tell him why it isnt worth... Ok I will...

B18A1's were only produced in two OBD forms, OBD-0 and 1. The B18B1 were produced in 3, OBD-1 (94-95), 2A (96-98) and 2B (98+). So with this said since your car is a 98 its OBD2A, just get a 98 or newer Integra motor, or for 900 from hmotors you can get a CRV motor which will go directly in via some help form a mount kit and shift linkage mod. If I missed anything, let me know.
