b18b swap into 94 civic

Ok first of all, I apologize for the post.. I know the information is out there, but I have done some research, and I'm still confused about a couple of things...

I have a 94 Civic DX hatchback (D15b7 automatic) and I plan to swap in a b18b with an automatic transmission..

The engine/transmission I'm buying from
http://www.jdmtigerjapanese.com/prod...roducts_id=193
comes with:
-Complete motor
-Complete head
-Intake Manifold
-Distributor
-Starter
-Alternator
-Exhaust
-TB
-Fuel Rail
-Injectors
-All sensors
-Automatic Transmission

Should I buy a replacement distributor? I think I read somewhere that it's a good idea to do that... Also, I read that I need new axles, a PR4 (correct?) ECU, shift linkage, and half shaft... I've been trying to find these parts for b18b w/at and I can only find them for manual transmissions...... this is what I've come across so far, will any of these parts work for the automatic? and if not, what should I be looking for?

-Axles: http://hasport.com/shop/product_info...products_id=97

-Shift Linkage: http://hasport.com/shop/product_info.php?products_id=53

-ECU: http://www.ecutuning.com/product_Hon...%20chip_7.html

-Half Shaft: http://www.streetimports.com/product_details.asp?id=714



Any help is greatly appreciated guys!

exactly what i was going to say. it is really worth it to learn how to drive with a clutch. you also loose 40 lbs in your tranny, parts are cheaper, and you'll feel more badass driving your manual than hearing your gears shift for you. get a 5 speed

haha no that's not the problem, my first car was a manual. they're easy to drive and i really do love driving with a clutch-- that's why i love NFS Pro Street lol. but i use my car for work and it makes my job a lot easier and safer with an automatic. also i don't think i can afford to convert it to manual :/

my d15 is pretty close to it's last mile.. so i have to get some engine/tranny work done pretty soon.. that's why i was swapping in a b18b. it has a little more power but it's still reliable and it fits in my budget haha. and if i get a new car for work later down the road i can still boost the b18.
