    Hi.
    We put a B16A1 engine on a 88 Si Civic (130bhp, engine code D16A9 DOHC) with S9B hydraulic gearbox.
    We bought subharness from Rywire to get VTec.
    The only things to be done are the wires on the driver side near the resistor box.
    How to wire them as B16 and D16 plugs are different and number of wires are different ?

    Thank you

    the easiest thing to do is use the engine harness that was on the D16A9 and swap the distributor connector from the B16 harness onto it - you will need to take the 2 wires that went to the cylinder sensor on the end of the exhaust camshaft and incorporate them into the distributor connector - just match up the wire colors on each side of the connection

    you had Si model in 88 Civic over there? - we didn't have Civic Si until 89 - only CRX Si in 88

    Thanks, perfect ;)
    In fact, the guy put B16 harness instead of D16 one, that's why we couldn't plug on the wires around the resistor box.
    With your solution, it will be perfect to plug the dizzy
    Yeah we've got civic and CRX Si from 88, and SIR from 90;)
