    The car is fine until i take it on the highway and then the car when i hit the Brake Pedal and the Temp Gauge Hits High and then the car starts bucking. There is a little Box with a Brown Plug in it Just below the Fuse Panel that Keeps Clicking as this is Happening. I am Clueless @ this Stage.

    I bought the Shell an 93 Ex & swapped a SIR II JDM B16a PR3-2 motor in it.

    > Reading other forums i found that its either because i Wired the Negative on the Battery to the Trans/Motor OR
    > The Fuel Sending unit wire is shorting & to Trace the wire all the way to the Gauge Cluster to the Fuel Sending unit.

    ?? Any Pointers on where i can start before i just Re-Wire the Entire Car??
    :confused:

    Can you elaborate a little more on "Bucking"?

    The Car Pretty Much Shuts Down once the Temp Gauge hits H.
    The car is not over heating but i guess the ECU reads it as Such

    I am Thinking about taking it to A Local Installation shop & Having them install a VAIC
    Butt typically i am not a big fan of those

    go over your wires with a multimeter. obviously you should check continuity of the brake and coolant switch circuits

    It was the ground the whole time... I realized this after i swapped out the alternator & did a OBD 1- OBD 2 conversion & swapped the Alternator for an Integra LS.

    Hard to ground the shit out of the battery

    Had to ground the shit out of the battery
    ie: battery to trans .Then ground going from there to the Ground going to the Frame on the trans & finally the ground from the trans to the frame.
    crazy!

    Great! Glad you found it. Most times it's simple things that are the hardest to find.

    Speaknig for myself - it's many times bad assumptions on my part that make things difficult.
