    you cannot use the D15B7 OBD1 distributor with an OBD0 ECU, if that is what you are trying to do - you need an OBD0 distributor from 88-91 CRX/Civic Si or HF or EX

    you need to add wires from the ECU to the distributor - go here:

    FourthGenHatch

    if you are using the D15B7 injectors, you won't need the injector resistor box

    You say it has 5pins?, that sounds like a Cx distributor. The Si has 7-pins. If so, do you have DPFI or MPFI?. OHHHH, I see your problem, you put a d15b7 intake manifold and distributor on your set-up. You have to convert to OBD-1 in order to use that intake manifold!. When and if you get the OBD-1 ECU jumper you will have a sub harness with about 8 extra wires to wire through your firewall into your engine bay. As well, you should swap a d16y8 head in there and everything should work fine:). If you have any more questions let me know and I would love to help you.

    In order for the E.C.U. to read it right you need to add 2 wires from your engine bay to your E.C.U.. I just did this wiring and it's pretty simple actually.
