prop valve is a must, BB and MC are not absolutely necessary but recommended

prop valve controls the flow of brake fluid to the calipers at each corner and the amount that flows. Your stock one will operate differently than one from an SIR/GSR/ITR because those will send more fliud to the rear calipers than yout stock one is set up to do

You do not need:

- rear trailing arm (because they are all the same)
- upper and lower control arms (if trailing arms are the same, therefore the mounting points don't change, and also, integra rear suspension is the round eye type, it is not fork like 96-00 civics)
- stablelizer arms (due to the rear lca style, this rear sway bar will not fit your car)
- use SiR parking cable

And you also don't need propotioning valve, because 96-00 hatches and SiR are all using 40/40 PV. You are good.

As for MC/BB, use SiR ones. Unless you want to use ITR, which bolts right on.
