    My question is how do you know your car has a carb on it? I am pretty sure that 87 was the last year that the US had a carb in a Civic. Do you have any pictures of the engine, especially the intake manifold?

    I'm not aware of any carbed eg civics. I'm pretty sure they are all efi. I don't know why you would want to run your car obd2 because you will have to get a new distributor, injectors and alternator anyway. The only extra thing you would have to get is an obd1 ecu and it is much easier to tune than an obd2 ecu.

    Where are you from?
