Which A/C bracket on B16A2?

Today, I realized my Saden compressor doesn't fit the bracket that is currently on my usdam B16a2. What is the bracket I need?

Is it the 96-97 Del Sol VTEC bracket? Is there any other bracket I can use? cuz, the bolts really don't line up with the bracket I got.

the car is a 97 ek coupe, by the way. I believe the ac system should be from the same model year. The compressor has S90F stamped on it and the Honda part no. for it is: 38800-P2F-***...
The numbers after P2F can't be read.

thanks in advance guys.

your best bet is to find the compressor made for your engine, does your sedan have a b or d series engine because the ac is not interchangeable between the two series.

I am pretty sure the 96-97 DOHC bracket from a del sol will work. Actually right now my AC Condensor is only on with one bolt and its been fine for a year now. I have the same setup as you basically. I was thinking of just getting a new compressor one that already fits the existing bracket but I am not sure if it will work. I've asked people if the AC bracket from a 99-00 SIR would work but whenever I check online no one ever mentions that bracket even though you'd think it would work. SO your stuck for sure with either a 96-97 DEL SOL vtec or a CRV b20 bracket

The car was actually a 97 Civic HX coupe from states. I read somewhere when swapping to a B series, u need a certain AC bracket in order to keep AC.

Hey, Moe! i was using one bolt as well. Which out of the four holes are u using?? passenger side bottom?

If you want the D series compressor to work so you dont have to cut and reweld lines then get the Del Sol 96-97 DOHC VTEC P54 bracket. Since you have a b16a2 you cannot use the CRV (cheaper bracket) if you have Power steering.

Honda Part Number 38930-P54-000 (not cheap from Honda about $150+ does not include idle pulley)

I cannot use CRV bracket? I read on Honda-Tech that I could and I almost bought one today. Yeah, and I do have PS.

If I choose to use P54, can I use the idle pulley that's on the B16A2?

Falcon is right you can't use the CRV bracket if you have power steering.

Prelude bracket? I have never heard of that one working from what I have read. If you have success let us know. Anyone have the answer to using a idle pulley from another bracket on the P54 etc?

Ok I comfirmed that you can use the Pulley and pulley bracket from the other setups. I have this working in my car now. I grabbed the CRV mount and used my D-series AC compressor with the Del Sol (SI) pulley and pulley bracket. Works perfect. Again please note the CRV mount will not work with a B16A2 with Power Steering. I have a GSR motor with Power Steering and it fits 100%.
