Im just wondering if anyone knows an easy way for me to get the right cpu.(or make my OBD2 one work) Can i not just go get a 1996 EX or Si computer. Does anyone kow if that will work?

    You need an EX ECU. The only obd2 Si is the 99-00 Si which is DOHC.

    Pick up an EX ECU from the junkyard (from the years 96-98).
    or
    You can get an obd2a>obd2b jumper harness. Rywire.com sells em or if you want to go cheap look it up on eBay.

    No problem on the advice ;)

    For the ECU, a great place to start is at the junkyard. If you don't have any luck there, try eBay. That's always a good place to find an ECU.

    I would definitely get the conversion harness from rywire.com. Well trusted in the Honda community.

    Good luck :thumbsup:
