    i have a 1988 acura and i put a 87 d16a1 engine into it.

    my proplem is with the distributor and TDC , crank and cylinder sensors.

    With the 1988, the distributor was internal and it had the crank and TDC sensor in the houseing, with the cyclinder sensor on the other cam.

    The 87 has exsternal coil and the TDC sensor and cylinder sensor are on one cam and the distributor is on the other...

    i have great spark but not a drop fuel coming out my injectors, and all my lines are good as well as my fuel pressure.

    what the HELLLL is wrong?

    if anyone has done this swap befor PLEZ give my a shout

    swap cam caps - use the cam caps, distributor and wiring from your original motor. The older distributor is electrically incompatible internally with your car.
