    as i said, if your car is still using an obd1 ecu and wire harness the one i linked above is right. d16y8 and y7 are both obd2 and are a pain in the ass to get the respective dizzy working on an obd1 ecu.

    oh, and you live in england, you're under 50, and you drive a honda....isn't that kind of a rarity in your area?

    Hondas built after 1988 and before 2000 are split up into 3 distinct groups. OBD0, OBD1, and OBD2. Each group has a different computer programmed for different performance and emission results. They also have different outputs. Now, if your EG is still using an OBD1 computer, its going to be a pain in the ass to get an OBD2 distributor working because now you have to rewire the distributor. So, if you want an OBD1 distributor that will work with your OBD2 motor, go with the one for the D15B7. If you've got an OBD2 ECU, well, of course, just go with the y8 distributor.
