    I'm pretty sure it will run but I wouldn't suggest it. Just buy yourself a p28 and have it tuned. Garunteed you will love the results.

    lol ....

    But will my D16Z6 run? here in Portugal an OBD1 ecu is something rare , and when it apears, is alot than 80-100 $ .. the Z6 and Y8 are preety similar or equal engines insnt? my idea is mantain the Y8 engine harness from my old blown engine , modify only the terminals to fit the Z6 ones...i know that isnt so that simple , but is one way to do it , and doing that i dont need to do any modifications to chassis harness...please give me ideas ..i dont have in mind any modifications , is a simple swap only...engine out engine in ..and thats all..

    thx ppl

    If you can't find what you're looking for on eBay, which I know you will, try Rywire.com. They have wires coming out of their ears and will be very helpful too. Best of luck.
