Default Mini me to B series swap

Alright, I read the swap sticky forum. From what I understood, B18's are plug and play in my 94 DX originally with a D15B7, now has a Mini-me, so I have the VTEC wiring and the Hondata ECU. Can anyone help me figure out what all is needed exactly to complete the swap?

Honestly, they are all about the same short of wiring.

With a VTEC unit (B16A/B, B18C/R) you will need to wire in a VTEC solenoid and sensor. Also I don't remember if the VX had a 1-wire o2 or that odd 5-wire o2 or if it has a normal 4 wire, if it is anything by a 4 wire, you will need to deal with it. With a B18A/B, it is straight plug and play (if your current car has VTEC, then you will have two plugs on the harness that will have no where to plug at). If you want a B20, is much like the B18A/B, but you will want to change the intake manifold or the hood may not close due to the tall intake runners on that manifold.

In terms of mounting, you will need B series drivers side mount, rear bracket, and transmission torque mount.

If you want to run the D-series A/C compressor you will need the A/C bracket from a P54 del sol.

B series axles and half-shaft will be required.

Awesome! Looks like I'll need axles, mounts, intake and exhaust. I've already converted to VTEC and 4 wire O2. Thanks for all the info
