    Well i took my integra to Honda to get my dizzy switched with a brand new one i got. Only to find out that the person who swapped the engine getto rigged the dizzy connections to fit an older style connector. He told me that i need to find a 92-95 civic connector to match with my new dizzy connector. Reason being is that i have a B16a SiR2 which was from a 92-95 civic SiR (makes sence).

    My real question is, does this have to be from any civic of that year or does it have to Si and/or VTEC models? We lack 92-93 GSR's here, also civics with b16's, Canadian Si's dont have B's.

    ehh.. ive lost some faith in honda.
    i took my prelude in and they said that someone did an engine swap in my car, he said that infact, its not even a honda motor.
    i was like, wtf?
    cuz every other time i looked at it, it said honda motor co. right there on top with the H and everything.
    it even said HM above the engine number.
    but just to be safe, i looked up the number, and it was the exact model engine that i thought was in the car.
    1990 Prelude 2.1 liter

    silly tech.
    :doh:

    Ya it sucks, however this isnt Honda's fault, in fact the guy who was telling me was also near my age, had many modified hondas and such and loved this stuff, did his own swaps. Its just i need to find that particular connector. This isnt cause its the dealer. He knows all about honda engines.

    thats what this guy claimed..
    i dont get why hed make the assumption that its not a honda motor, let alone the right motor..
    i dont think he even looked under the hood.
    cause he said i could just have the wrong ecu, and i did!
    and the wrong wiring harness, and no co2 sensors..
