    the best thing to do would be to convert it all over to run OBD1 - the other option would be to leave everything as you have it and get a PR3 or a PW0 OBD0 B16A ECU and add wiring for the VTEC, knock sensor and 2nd O2 sensor - the B16A ECU is not going to have the correct fuel and ignition maps for the Y8 and you should get the ECU chipped with the maps for the P28 ECU
