    Your best bet is to modify your existing harness. It isnt hard. Cut solder heat shrink. Done deal.

    Trying to use the other harness is going to be a huge pain.

    You could also just give $120 (I think) to Monotech and he'll send you a a plug and play harness for a DPFI to MPFI in a 88-91 CRX/Civic DX. Little labels on all the plugs and everything. Though, it really isn't that hard to do it yourself. It's only swaping a few wires and adding for four injectors.

    IMO, Monotech all the way. I had a hard time with the DPFI-MPFI swap wiring. It CAN be done, but then you also have to worry about buying the injector pigtails and cutting 2 pins with like 3" of wire left for the ECU pins. Plug and play all the way!!.

    Are you running OBD0 or OBD1 injectors?.

    I believe you can only use the OBD0 injectors with an OBD1 resistor box.

    say what!? there is no such thing as an obd1 resistor box. that's like an oxymoron. the boxes are for obd0 pre 92 peak and hold type injectors.

    OP: if you are using obd0 injectors then you will use a resistor box, and if you intend on using saturated obd1 injectors, you will not use the resistor box. simple as that.

    I honestly figured that but I got told to shut up about shit that I don't know what I'm talking about, so I didn't say anything because I honestly didn't know.
