It with a b18a1 with a cable trans. Can some one

What I need. I have the full swap b18a1 with trans

Well, sounds like you may be missing a few things. You need a hydro to cable mount and a hydro to cable adapter for the clutch actuation. You also need an 99-00 SI rear T bracket. You will also need to change your IACV from 3-wire to 2-wire. Get an OBD2 distributor, to use with the factory harness, or an OBD1, and use it with a conversion harness. What ECU are you running?

pr4, I think he can use obd1 p75 ecu with his civc stock harness and modify plugs on the obd0 motor and use a jumper harness.

Here is what you need to run that cable transmission in your EK chassis.

CLICK HERE AND BUY THIS I would also check with JB and see if they carry the adapter mount for this swap.

If he is using an OBD2A to OBD1 ecu adapter harness, he can use a P75 to run it stock. He could also use a P05/P06/P28/P30/P72 ecu that is socketed and chipped for an LS basemap. I would try and locate an OBD2 LS distributor. It will make the plug and play easier, and limit the amount of wiring you need to do. Inexperience when it comes to distributor wiring can be a nightmare. More than once have I seen it lead to somebody selling a car, when all it needed was an experienced set of eyes and a half hour of time.

Shhh.... i am.waiting so.i can buy his car for cheap lol. Jk

Better off finding hydro trans. Find an obd2 ls intake manifold to make things easier.


Convert from 3plug iacv to 2 plug.
Then get obd2 distributor on it. Ls non vtec will mount up.
99 si back t bracket.
B series axles with matching trans axle.
Example... da axles calls for da trans axle. Dc with dc.
Da have male male ends on.both sides vs dc has female male on the axle on left side.

For the harness. Just use your stock harness and change out any necessary sensors so the plugs match with obd2 harness.

Next get a jumper harness for ecu. Obd2A to obd1. Use obd1 p75 or obd1 pr4 ls ecu. I would go with the pr4 obd1 ls.

Obd1 pr4 only came in the 92- 93 integras.

Btw. U can find ls hydro trans for couple hundred bucks.

Instead of buying the conversion kit...

Sell the cable trans and use that money with the money for buying the conversion kit to pick up the hydro trans.

Around the same cost and less headaches
