    I have a 90 Civic Si and I'm going to do a Z6 mini-me. Can I keep the injectors as long as I retain the resistor box when I convert to a P28 ECU, or do I need to get OBD1 injectors and bypass the resistor box?

    Also, I'm assuming all the sensors are compatible except the ones on the intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and head which are all going to be OBD1 anyway. Is this correct? What about the TPS? I want to reuse my A6 throttle body. I already know I need a Z6 distributer and I need to convert the plug.

    the electronics need to be obd1 as well.

    this includes injectors.

    Actually that's incorrect. I found out that all sensors (except the O2) will work the same, the injectors will work fine with the resistor box. The injectors will affect the way the car runs, but not by much.

    Correct, obd0 injectors will work as long as you have the resistor box.

    peak/hold injectors CAN run on a saturated-ready ECU, provided the resitor box is in place. That's how lot's of guys run DSM injectors :)

    the VSS needs to be obd1, and i'd recommend changing the alternator out too (although i've heard it both ways, so who knows)
