    neither is legal or reccomended. problems will come without a doubt; its better to just run the correct obd level for your car. what are you looking at, a B16 SiR?

    Well then your best bet would be to just get the obd0 motor and convert it to obd2

    Damn man! That’s a hard one!
    I know of obd1 to obd2 and the other way around. Obd0 to obd1 is also no problem. Check out this site.
    http://www.boomslang.us
    They specialize in Conversion Harnesses. Maybe you can contact them and see if they can help you. Maybe you might even find what you’re looking for on their website. It would be easier to put a obd1 engine in your car. You can also try to google Honda Conversion Harnesses too and see what you can find.
    Good luck dude.

    osnap is right. Putting an older engine in a newer car is not only illegal, but way to much of a nightmare to even attempt unless you are a car genius in every aspect. Why not just get a d16y8 and do a junkyard turbo setup and make as much, if not more, hp and tq as a b series.

    It is illegal to swap an older engine into a newer car, period.

    You can mock me all you want. I'm just telling him it's illegal. He can do the swap if he wants, but if his city has emission checks he's gonna be SOL.

    It's just a warning.

    Legalities aside, I don't know why you'd want to buy a motor that at best is 16 yrs old just to save a couple hundred bucks. There are supposedly some inferiorities in the head design also with the older ones. Plus those old swaps you need to change the injectors, they come with cable trannies, blah blah.

    IMO, it's the tranny that costs the most on the later swaps, and you'd have to get a hydro B16 tranny anyways so in the end you don't even save that much getting the old one. OBD1 is alright, easy to convert.
