Default D15B swap

ok so i have managed to solve my exhaust issue for free.. so i don't need a new exhaust... .yet lol. so am thinking on saving the cash frrom the exhaust, and put it towards a D15B swap(before anyone asks yes the JDM D15B) i know this should be a direct drop in my engine bay. i have a D15B7 right now. now my question... Axles, OEM? or what specific ones do i need?

And for the swap it self i am thinking on getting some poly bushing motor mounts. i will find them somewhere but if someone has a link right now that would be awesome.

Also i have to convert from auto to manual, i was told that i may need to weld in the shifter? is this true? i thought it would bolt in.

God i feel like such an uber newb right now... but i am venturing into a territory i have only looked at... actual modding[:-] lol.

on a side note, this is going to be alot sooner if the Dragon falls through on me, but i am gonna start getting the misc. part for the swap asap(like shifter and stuff like that lol)

your current axles will be fine..............and the shifter bolts in...you will have to drill 2 holes in your floor to mount the shift stabilizer rod up. you will however have to weld in a 5spd passenger upper frame tranny mount into the car since the auto mount sits higher. a little rewiring and your golden. its not a hard swap to do. its like replacing a clutch +2-3 extra hours assuming you have all your parts and tools needed.

as the B7?... well if you buy the whole swap it should come with the intake and exhausts manifolds.. but yeah headers and SRI/CAI will still work with the swap
