Ive worked on hondas for some time now mostly on my 97 teg ls..but just recently bought a crx an 89 hf for 500 bones..on order are motor mounts from hcp racing, 4 mounts left right and front and rear tranny for relocating a B18 non vtec..The proper shift linkage, and motor with tranny with all other needed parts for the swap itself.NOW for my question ... What other parts will i need for the cable to hydro swap or is it just a matter of swapping the tranny itself?

nobody has an answer for me? More specific the b18b is coming out of a 1998 acura integra LS model and also the 5 speed hydro tranny..the hasport mounts move the engine closer to the firewall.Will i need an aftermarket shift linkage and is there any thing else i will require for this hydro from cable swap?

get a cable tranny.....you will save yourself many headaches....but if you must go with hydro get the hydro to cable conversion kit......your question is not very clear.....are you asking what you will need for the tranny swap or what?...if so you will need a new clutch (might as well if the tranny is off)....etc.....

yes hydro trannies can be a bitch to make work on a cable system.....and the gearing isnt much different on the 90-93 tranny......if you wanted really fast accel (but shitty gas mileage) then you could get a 92-93 GSR tranny (cable but RARE AS HELL)...

ok thanx for the info....i'll start the prep for the car next week.paint and all enginebay..its gonna be a while before the install.im wanting to rebuild the motor to be safe.. looks like crap..so im gonna drop the 94+ tranny and start my journey for the 90-93....now is this gonna be a direct swap?

p.s. sorry for all the questions im good with cars but interchangability seems to simple, just trying to be cautious...

Everybody mentions the transmission actuation, as if it is the biggest problem that you will encounter if you try to use a hydraulic transmission in a 1988-1991 car. But nobody mentions the fact that a hydraulic transmission requires a different mounting bracket. Simply put, most B-series mount kits will not accommodate a hydraulic transmission. Place Racing is the only company out there who makes a bracket for a hydraulic transmission in a 1988-1991 car.
