find yourself a cable b-serires transmission, clutch kit and flywheel along with 5spd flywheel bolts/pressure plate bolts and thats all you need.

The only suggestion i have is no integra modified shift linkage....that is ghetto...go on ebay and buy the hasport shift linkage, the cut and welded integra lingage is weak i have it....buy the one that fits...my crx had the hasport and it is so much better than this cut and welded modified integra linkage.

modified linkages are only ghetto if you dont know what your doing......were using one on our drag car that has seen a little over 3 years of use with no issues. prep the metal properly, jig it properly, and weld it right.but i know what your saying....im assuming your linkage was doen wrong. all my customers linkages are modified by me with no problems.

My lingage is fine however I can tell the difference between this swap with a welded linkage and my B16 with the custom fab...it seems to be worth the money to buy the one that is built to exact specs...you know how the heat and welding causes a margin of error

very true........if the modified linkage isnt welded to exact specs your entire shift feel will be terrible. my first modded linkage actually shifted crooked. for someone that can afford it by all means get a hasport/avid/any other brand shift linkage. but if your broke or a penny pincher like most of my customers a modded linkage done right should be fine.
