    either get a converison harness to run the OBD2 ecu

    or get OBD1 ecu, distributor, and injectors...

    your ecu, dist and injectors can work on that motor, but wihtout a P28 = no vtec, and your dist isn't going to line up right with the bolt holes

    the injector plugs are different
    the distributor plug is different
    the alternator plug might be different

    your car is a 92 so you should already have the wiring for VTEC (all 92 civics had it)
    im not sure if it is already on the engine harness but i know it goes at least to the plugs on the shock towers

    now as for the plugs that are different... you can go out and spend more money on OBD1 parts
    or...
    if you have the OBD-2 harness you can simply swap out the plugs:

    for the injectors... the colors are the same for OBD-1 and OBD-2 just cut them off your harness and replace with the new plugs

    for the distributor... you are going from a double plug setup to a single plug setup... when i did mine the colors didnt match but the wire location did

    for the alternator... you can probly just use your stock one... i didnt convert the plug on mine so im not sure how to go about it

    and yes you want to run that with a P28
