    Ok blew up my motor so im switching to a B16a now, few questions since i did a search here, first one is there anything wrong with a B16a, its a JDM motor so how would i get parts for it or if needed could i use later model B16 parts. Also what ECU should i get, i cant seem to find one so is there another ECU i could have programmed for it?

    There are plenty of ECUs that can be chipped and programmed to run a B16, the P28 being the most typical example. You'll probably want to get a conversion harness so you can run an OBD1 ECU.

    Also, there are OBD0 ECUs that will work. Check the ECU list in the reference section for the codes...

    Correct. P28 = OBD1 single-cam VTEC, from the D16Z6 engine to be specific...

    The right ECU for the OBD0 B16 is a PR3 or a PW0.

    im going with the P28 since im also trying to pull this on a budget and i want to keep it under 1700 since thats all i have, im getting the motor for a thousand and i can get a P28 ecu and have it chipped with Hondata s100 for alot cheaper then coming up with a B16a specific ecu seeing as im going with a jdm motor theyre not readily availible, my shop quoted me at 500 just for that specific ecu, i already have a jumper harness from my previous setup and im getting the ecu from a buddy if i spend that extra money since his has s300

    Bought a 91 civic with warped head-change motor?

    The $450 price for the 1991 civic seemed good as it has adjustable ride height shocks, exhaust, short shift, ton of custom stuff, but the moron kept drving it-fan failed.
    ques-chnge to vtec or use same motor?

    What the hell dude? What does that have to do with the topic of this thread?

    Don't butt in on other people's questions, just start your own thread...

    There should be some sort of basic test on proper grammer and sentance structure before being allowed to become a member.

    The forum would not work last night, no matter what I typed, It would not work.
    So, where do I go to ask the question?
    I am new to this, and far sexier than the rude dudes-lai

    You're "far sexier than the rude dudes"? WTF are you talking about?!?

    This is the Integra forum numbnuts. Go make a thread for this question in one of the Civic forums...

    i got my swap from elitejdm.com(formerly jdmexchange.com) in philadelphia for 1800 shipped. they included EVERYTHING. check them out. if youre east coast, im pretty sure its a flat rate for shipping, so youd probably get the same deal
