    My del originally came with a d but a b was swapped in. Ever since the b20 was swapped in it never ran right. At first it was running sluggish when full throttled. Now my bro's friend changed up some wiring and it doesnt run sluggish anymore, but it is running rich and only get 125 mile to the tank. I'm not sure what to do and which wire was changed. Any help at this time would be greatful.

    Yes ^^^ Need an ECU for the motor. A OBD2 P75 is a direct fit and not too expensive.

    Okay....your previous post made it seem like you were running the original ECU for your car.....

    P75 OBD2 is a 96-up Integra LS B18B

    Oops....I forgot to ask....your Del Sol is OBD2? Year?

    Sorry I should have been more clear. The car is a 97(obd2), when motor was first swapped it had a bog, then my bro had a friend in Orlando fix the box but now runs way to rich. I am currently in Mississippi and my bro cannot get a hold of the guy that worked on the car. I searched how to swap a b series into a del sol but could not find anything.

    Its a straight forward swap then (in general). You may have an issue that is not related to the swap. What did your Bro "Fix"? Find out what he did.

    He said something about swapping some wires to keep the fuel pump from pushing too much gas. It's been over 5 years and doesn't remember which wire.

    No wires should have been swapped! (at least to the best of my knowledge).

    EVERY plug on your Del Sol harness should have hooked up to the B20 longblock.
