    I am swap a B16 into my 90 hatckback. The motor is an obd1 motor out of a 95 delslow. I bought the car without an interior wiring harness. What harness do I need to make the swap go well. I have bought 2 harnesses and neither one has worked. Will one out a 90 hatch work.

    Use your stock engine harness, add plugs/wires where the stock one's are lacking. From another harness.

    You can do what I did(I have a D15B VTEC with OBD1 D16Z6 engine harness, the main harness was from a 93 Civic EX); buy/use a OBDI interior harness; cut off the interior parts(keep the engine connectors), wire the interior wires accordingly by simply using a OBD0-OBD1 conversion chart...there's only like 10 wires. Remove the OBDO engine connectors out of the car, route the OBD1 engine part of the connectors through the firewall and into the engine bay.

    This is pretty much the hard way to do it, it's pretty time consuming because all the damn tape and stuff on there. Ill try to get a pic of mine(it's currently out of the car).

    edit: also make sure you have the engine bay harness; its the one the sends power to the fuel injectors. I did'nt have this and didnt want to spend any money on one so I just did some ghetto wiring.

    Any OBDI car will work; 92-95 civics. If its a 92, it should have the VTEC wire(all other years 93-95 except the EX and Si trims don't have the VTEC wire and it will have to be added).

    I don't know if itll work, but I just cut and modified mine because the Civic harness had stuff I didnt need(like SRS, ABS, power windows stuff, etc.).

    If you want to use the 92-95 Main harness straight up, it might be possible but the connectors may be different. You just need time on your hands to rewire/label everything.
