    Wink Rendons Offical A To B series thread!!!!

    Well im letting go of something good for something better LOL. ya ya i alread know what you guys gonna say Anywho

    I post pics once i get home.

    You guys know so far i have a B16a and I just bought a complete B18b1 last night. APr head studs and redo the main and rod bearing for a tighter clearance. 12 lbs should be 300whp.

    Pics to your comp near you.

    B series swap info:

    First off this project can be cheap, expensive, or nothing depending on your sources. But I'm going to give the info I researched an trail an fail lol.

    Motor: I'm Ls Vtec which means using a non Vtec block an mating it with a Vtec head. Now you can run non Vtec or Vtec up to you but I wanted a beast so I buildt mine.

    Wiring: I'm using a bloomslang jumper harness that was made for my chassis . You have to call bloomslang an tell em you want one made for a 86-89 accord. Only flaw about the harness is the ckp wires are not shielded which 2 bucks can get you the amount needed at Home Depot (shielded 18-2 wire) make sure you have these wires correct or you will not start. Harness uses your existing plugs as your AC solenoid connector for your iac an your fast idle control solenoid (in your black box as your) as your 12+ icm wire. Pretty much it an I took apart my engine bay harness an took out what I did not need an wanted an swapped plugs. You going to have to put a obd1 Ect,iacv,dizzys,Vtec (if have) tps,Iat, CONNECTORS on your existing harness. The jumper harness provides a extension harness to wire up (4) wire o2 sensor an extra crap if you have gsr with 2nd throttle body's. (pics in thread)

    Note: IF YOUR 86-87 an have a vss code (17) YOU NEED A 89 CLUSTER to fix this problem.

    Transmission: has to be cable unless you decide to swap clusters an do the required wiring to run eletro vss.

    Axles: have to use a mid shaft from 90-93 integra,gsr. Has to be female to male!!!!!!! Remember has to be that in order to run the axles I'm about to mention. You can use 94-98 teg mid shaft but you would have to a different seal on the cable trans. Also the correct axles for that midshaft.

    Driver - 89 lude (has to be this year not 90 or 91 those years have bigger hub which have a bigger shaft will not fit are hubs )
    Pass - 90-93 integra fits like a glove .

    Running this with no problems. All this hybrid axle crap makes no sense with this you can just buy one an swap it out.

    Shift linkage: you can just swap ends from a 90-93 integra (but I tryed that an was to long) my tip is to tack weld it an test fit it when it feels like it shifts fine . Burn it in. Install bastard pin an your set.

    Common facts: you need to be fuel injected an obd1. If your not this is the perfect chance to do it. None of your A20 parts will fit a b series so don't ask. This swap is not cheap so get a civic if you want a easy swap. If you can't basic tech work you shouldn't be working on a car period.

    Ill add pics an edit this once I get my Internet back lol. Pics are threw out the thread so start studying .

    BUT WAIT THEREEE IS MOAAAR!!!!!!!!!!!!


    As you can see holes suppose to line up but they dont work. Thats why the mount isnt power coded





    Mount on the b series holes line up perfect.


    Things need:

    Tranny
    axles
    bearings
    Apr head studs
    Itr cams
    GE LSV convo kit
