    Hey guys i'm new to the forum, i just got back from deployment and i purchased a 94 b18c1 jdm GSR engine from passwordjdm.com but i have some issues with the harness because it was cut. I bought another ECU obd-1 harness from ebay and the seller e-mailed me and this is what he said:

    "I would like to inform you that this harness will not work for your swap, Integra and obd2 civic harnesses are very much different, if you look at your civic harness it does not have a passenger side shock tower plug and the wires continue to go directly to the ECU. A Integra harness will have shock tower plugs where the harness can be disconnected"

    If i'm using the obd-1 ecu and that came with the swap and the obd-1 harness i just ordered why wouldn't it work? I'm kind of confused, i would really appreciate any help thanks alot.

    integra harnesses, no matter what year, will not work in an obd2 civic.

    period. end of story.

    use your stock harness and add vtec wires.

    go to www.ff-squad.com

    they have the instructions there on how to convert your obd2 dx harness for vtec.
