    acutally you can use a civic/crx si distributor with a leg cut off (sounds like thats what he has). You're running the wrong ECU. You need a PR3 or PW0 ECU. You'll need to buy a vtec harness from hasport or wire it up so it'll fit but then it should run and have vtec.

    ^^^It's not OBD1....that would be retarded. Why would anyone just say "oh yeah and for the fuck of it i'll switch to OBD1 in an OBD0 car and engine just for shits and giggles!" Its the ECU, not the distributor or the OBD#.

    So teh distributor doesnt make a difference between SOHC & DOHC engines? Thought it did, very well carry on. Converting to OBD-1 is more tuner friendly than OBD-0 (IE Hondata).
