    My car is B18A1 in a EF civic. My car has codes 5, 10, 14, and 43. Not sure what to do. My car was running fine but I went to fill up the gas and parked it for a while. I drove it for a few minutes then it just lost power and started to backfire non stop. When you try to floor it, backfires even more. What is wrong with my car?

    5 MAP - manifold absolute pressure sensor
    10 IAT - intake air temperature sensor
    14 IAC (EACV) - idle air control valve
    43 Fuel supply system

    What do I do to fix these things?

    we found the source of this crap. It was the rotor inside the distributor. It was off, the screw came off. We got a new cap and rotor so its all good now. Too bad it couldnt shoot a code for distributor. My car almost blew up. It is fixed now and driving great.

    The LS/VTEC Swap

    this guide should help with the swap. You should be able to use the crx si wire harness or probably the b18 wiring. you also need b18 axles for the swap, swap shift links and swap motor mounts. I have never done lsvtec before. I only have the B18A1 in there that doesnt have vtec. Might have to do a little wiring to get the vtec to work. cant help you much.
