    Why did you re-pin stuff?

    The OBD2B cabin harness, ECU and Key relate to one another (immobilizer). What OBD2B ecu did you use?

    Rule of thumb with Honda swaps: use the chassis engine harness. I know using an older motor in a newer chassis is not smog legal.

    I'm guessing finances made you put a older and less hp motor in your car. But now your chasing gremlins you'd of never seen with a OBD2B D16Y8 that your car came with. Same ECU and Engine Harness.

    That sounds right to me. Well, the entire base model longblock and ECU. They should work fine with your chassis engine harness.

    It's possible that the new ECU doesn't match your key (in terms of immobilizer) But, if that's the case, the car would not start. I know a dealership can mate them for a cost.
