    hi there, as of the title.. i am taking the engine out of my EG coupe (1996 reg) and replacing it with a d16y8 out of a 1999 reg coupe...

    It will have the loom, ecu, g/box, driveshafts etc etc

    will i need a obd1-obd2 conversion kit?

    If so, where can i get this from?
    Thanks

    Taylor

    Mounts should be ok. You can run it all OBD1 if you want, and a conversion harness definitely makes the installation easier. You can look on sites like Rywire.com (a sponsor) to find good conversion harnesses cheap.

    I think the conversion harnesses will let you use the Y8's engine harness with the rest of the OBD1 wiring in your car.
