    Make sure you routed the main harness correctly. You may need to extend some of the wire harness branches. This is easy with a decent soldering iron, heat shrink tube, and quality electrical tape.

    If u are using the jdm diizzy that came wit the motor it wont work. The plugs between usm and jdm are different. Get a usdm b16 or gsr dizzy, swap em out, and ur good to go.

    My OBD1 JDM dizzy on my B16 plugged right into a USDM D16Z6 Engine Harness.

    What year is the ITR swap? Could be OBD2A vs OBD2B thing?

    yeah if your ITR swap is 98+ spec, its obd2b which the dizzy plugs are different. your car being a 97 means its obd2a.
