    I have a b18c5 I want to swap into my 97 civic hx. I was wondering what is the easiest way to do the wiring? I have the wiring harness from a 00 Civic si & ecu and I also have a wiring harness from a 97 Civic EX. any help is appreciated guys. I just need to get my car out of my parents garage asap.

    96-98 civics need to use the 96-98 wire harness. thats all there is to it.

    Does the wiring harness need to be modified? The HX harness has an EGR on the intake manifold. Has anyone done a swap into an HX before. Any info is appreciated.

    you have to use the 96-98 ex harness or a dx harness wired for vtec. the HX harness has a 5 wire o2 sensor which messes things up a bit. you cant use the the si harness or ecu because 99-00 is obd2b your car is a 96-98 which is obd2a

    Thanks for the info everyone! Which ecu should I use for the b18c5? I just want to make sure I get everything correct. Like I said, I have the wiring from a 97 civic EX and pretty much everything for the engine including a distributor from a 97 GSR. I think I might have the 97 GSR ecu also. Would this work or is there a better choice besides using a obd2 to obd1 harness ?
