    Im from los angeles myself...

    Deff, you need the mpfi harness. Around town the A6 is very popular. Although i may have some parts that you can build of if you want to learn. Let me know by pm.

    For someone with experience, in my opinion no big thang. Lots of good swap threads out there. All the tech data, wiring schematics and such are available on the web for free download if you just look around a little.

    Old Honda's are easy to work on.

    nope just run everything electronic wise from your dx, even the same ecu and the ecu will think its the same engine, only difference is its a 1.6 other than 1.5, the computer will compensate for everything and u will make more power, and thats put in the simplest terms possible lol
