    To recap:
    You swapped a b16a2 into your 98 EK
    You used the existing harness
    You used a jumper to go from OBD2a to OBD1 for the P28 ECU
    You repinned the distributor for the new ECU
    Car doesn't get spark

    Do the injectors fire?
    Have you traced the distributor wires all the way back to the ECU?

    Rewire the distributor.....I thought that was unnecessary for a B series in an EK. Straight plug and go. Only wiring is a knock (if not deleted in chip) and VTEC (if it's not an EX).
