    I have a quick tech question. It's my first swap and I' m dropping a 98 usdm b18c1 into my 98 honda civic ex/ 5-speed.

    I got the motor/tranny/shift linkage/axels/and p72 ecu, however I didn't get a wiring harness that goes to the ecu. does this matter or could I use the one from the car, if so would i need to do any serious wiring? and if any of you have done this swap before I would love some pointers/tips/hints

    thanks

    jeff :worthy:

    do u still have a harness on the b18? if not, use your d16y8 motor harness and use the p72 ecu and if it is an obd2 ecu then it should be plug and play. Not to sure though.

    Your stock harness will work but you may need to add the aib.

    you will need to use your factory wiring harness and then hard wire the knock sensor as well as the aib's. or you could get a skunk2 intake manifold so that you can eliminate the aibs. the best way to do what you are trying to do is.... skunk2 intake manfold, skunk2 obd1 conversion harness and a reprogrammed p28 ecu. please feel free to contact me at my shop if you need more help
