A guy around me will do the swap for $800 and have it done in a weekend. He has done over 500 motor swaps in alot of different makes and models the guy knows what he is doing he will be the one i go to when i get my car converted to a manual as well as when I rebuild my motor for a turbo kit and he will make me a custom turbo kit.

I have bought a B18C to put into my 92 GS. The only thing I noticed so far in examining any issues is that the intake manifold with its dual intake channels may occupy more space in the engine compartment. There isn't a lot of clearance between the existing manifold and the firewall. Anyone know if that is an issue?

Forgot to say that I do this work myself. The doing is more important to me than the result.

i think you're gonna have to re-route some vacuum lines (like the one for brake booster)
look on g2ic.com
i know it has been dicussed there(with pictures)

you can use a B16 intake manifold, saving yourself the hassle of wiring up the IAB's on the GSR manifold. WHat year is your integra? If its 92 or newer your good to go, as long as your enigne is obd1. Howeve rif you have a 90-91 wiring will be more of a hassle. You probably already knew hits.

I don't think a B16 manifold is a bolt-on affair. I also believe you will be choking the engine. It's all been covered here before.

My friend with an 90 Civic HB is running a C1 with B16 intake manifold.
ya but it doesn't bolt right up, the b16 will bolt up to hte b18c5, but not the b18c1 or b18b
but you can get it to work, jsut takes some machining
