    Good morning all!

    Been doing some homework on the y7 to y8 swap.. not the mini me but full swap. I have a 96 civic dx hatch. I have the y8 engine, and 5 sp man tranny with ecu. My question is i have read that i can use my existing harness with a few modifications for VTEC. However with this swap i will be also going from an auto to a man and i noticed that some of the posts i read they said no problem using the existing y7 harness if is auto. Is there anything i need to know before I start this? Any advice or tips? Thanks in advance!

    Make sure you check the motormounts. I believe you might need different passenger side mount and rear bracket.

    You WILL need a passenger side manual mount. The center (rear bracket) mount is the same ;)

    This info can be found with the search option, but yes the auto harness will work.
    Be sure you stay with 96-98 manual ecu only. You can either cut or tape off the plugs for the auto solenoids. You will need to convert to a 2 wire iacv once you run the proper p2p ecu as well as a manual y8 intake mani.
    2 additional wires will be needed for VTEC. solenoid and pressure.

    Also one wire for the knock sensor.
