Default B18c5 Swap into my civic

So im looking into gettin a b18c5 engine. I am aware of some of the extra things i need, correct me if i'm wrong but i would need to get a 99-00 civic si rear bracket, 95 integra axles, and im going to get a hasport mount kit, or something, havent really started looking into that yet. so this is the bracket i think i need - http://inlinefour.com/oemtbracmoun.html
and as far as the axles i can go to auto zone or something for those... but is there anything else i need to look out for? as far as electical... would they have to convert anything with the wiring harness's or anything? any info would help... thanks a bunch!

edit- I have a 2000 civic EX 2 door.... lol it would help if i told u wat kind of car i had

i understand that but for how many thousand less you can get the C1, do basic things and make good power

all a C5 is, is a more refined C1. IMO not worth it. Get a C1 and put a b16 head on it. thats a poor man's type r

Or just get the JDM 180 hp C1 and put I/H/E and you're practically the same as a ITR. Not a big difference. Go to hmotorsonline and you can get the complete swap. Just let them know what car it's going into and they can practically hook u up with anything you need.

a poor mans type r is a c1 with the internals of a type r.

well to answer the original question:

you don't need hasport mounts, you can use OEM mounts with poly inserts if desired
basically you need to replace some of your mounts with 99-00 Si mounts
-yes, the rear t-bracket
-front transmission mount (just the part that attaches to the tranny)
-upper timing belt mount (with 2 studs)
-del sol vtec a/c mount (if you want to keep a/c)

any 94+ b-series shift linkage (other than del sol)

any 94+ b-series axles and intermediate shaft (other than late JDM type-R)

99-00 Si power steering pump (integra or obd1 b16 will NOT fit)

94+ b-series upper radiator hose

if you want to pass obd2 emissions testing, you will need to rig up the purge control solenoid valve, also hang on to your stock ECU, that will run the car well enough to pass, if you do everything right you won't throw any check engine lights

your stock wiring harness will be reused (unless you have an automatic!)
you will need to extend the wires for the CKF sensor and IAT sensor, most everything else should fit
you may or may not need to re-pin your distributor plug

that should about cover it. there are plenty of writeups online if you look around
