    Hi there, I'm new to the forums....


    But anyway on to my questions, i have very recently managed to get hold of a 1996 Civic EJ6 Coupe i have wanted one for a very long time,
    It has the D16Y7 non vtec motor and i really want to swap out the head to a Y8... I have a few guides and stuff and i have done full engine swaps/rebuilds before so i know what im doing in that part, i'm just curious about the ECU and the re-wireing?? i mean i was never good with electrics :rolleyes:

    Please could you run down a list of what i'm going to need, and which ECU to go for (something easy and i dont mind getting a knocking sensor)i've read the P28 are the way forward but i really dont know enough about that so any help would be great.

    Also what exactly will i have to do... i mean after i fit the head what kind off problems am i likely to face?

    Thanks again guys, if anyone has any links to guides or whatever that would also be great..

    P.S Any head from a '96-'00 Y8 will fit on my current '96 Y7 Block wont it?

    see you probably wanted one for a long time because that's the body style that was in The Fast And The Furious...

    so your EXACT circumstances have arose many other places. do us a favor and use the search...

    Well, it wasnt from the fast and the furious that i wanted one of these.... It was long before that,

    As for everyone being so negative to me fine, i'm new the forum give me a bit of a break?? you think i havent used google??? the reason i ask is because i cant find what im looking for call it bad search skills if you wish but it still leaves me with the same problem.

    As for the whole ECU thing i suppose i'll ask else where,

    Cheers, :rolleyes:

    yes, you are actually correct!

    well that's the last damn time i'm listening to my buddy for car trivia. he insisted to me it was a '96 one day. but i just looked it up, and you sir are correct, lol.
