1991 Integra JDM Motor Swap.

I owned a 1991 Acura Integra. It had a automatic transmission and a 1.8L motor. Some how i got the idea in my head that i wanted a Vtec motor. So i went on a hunt on ebay for a JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) motor. I found a great deal on a B16 Vtec with a Y1 MANUAL transmission. So i bought it, and waited for the shipping form California to South Florida.

Before I got the motor and tranny, i ordered some parts from a junk yard, i needed the clutch pedal and the clutch cable. To save money the auto manufactures produce a car that will have all the holes for manual and work with a automatic, so i just had to attach the clutch pedal to the empty holes.

When it came time to install the motor and tranny, it was not to hard. I had all the right tools, including a engine hoist.

PS. I did it all in a driveway with no cover…
