    You answered your own question, use the stock engine harness and add sensors and wires and run them to the right pin outs on the ecu.

    Isn't HX prewired for VTEC anyways? [​IMG]
    I think using an obd2a harness on there would be plug-n-play all the way?

    you guys are going to laugh your ass of the guy that sold me the car used the 99si harness thats obd2b and the car is obd2a heres the funny part the ecu only has 2 of the 3 plugs that go to it and the car still runs but the good thing is i gat a 98ex harness from a friend he said its plug and play only thing i will need is a obd2a converter to obd1 so i can use my p72 ecu and get rid of the check engine hope this works
