    I just got my motor and it's a b16a2 obd1, but my car and the ecu i'm going to use is an obd2. I was just wondering if any of you guys can help me out. Also, i need help with the vtec wiring on my dx harness, do i have to cut anything?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    IF you would have done it the other way, going obd1 car with obd2 engine, it would have been alot easier. You went the wrong way. Going obd2-obd1 is tuff, alot of wiring.

    it's gotta be a jdm b16a2, unless it has obd1 shit on it from somebody else which is just as possible..... in a nutshell save your self from a whirlwind of shit, just buy a p28!!!!

    Does it actually say B16A2 on it?If so it should be a USDM or EDM.If it is USDM it is probably OBD II cuz the OBD I delsol vtec is harder to find.

    no all jdm engines have a b16a or a b18c, there are no numbers on JDM engines (except for diplacement #'s)

    It's more like you guys are argueing than helping me out. It's all good man, i already got it all wire up. Obd1 to Obd2, it's easy once you get down to business and wire it up. Hopefully, you guys know how to do the same thing too because i only know how to wire it, but don't know how to get instruction.

    Thanks for the help dumbasses!
