    Yes, you're correct. What kind of car is this going into?

    96 civic dx i just have some doughts about my stock d16y7 engine it lacks power in the higher rpms and hits high rpms higher than it should i think. for example i need to be in 5th to go past 60 and stay within a reasonable rpm granted it dosent have a tac god it sounds awfully high. so before i do any major work i want to get a solid good cond D to replace mine i have a y8 head and intake mani already along with gaskets and belt tho.

    A complete Y8 would be an easier swap as far as wiring purposes go. All Z6s are set up for OBD1...

    I like the d16z6, personally. I'm all about B-series, but if I had to build a D, that would be the platform. Even if its going into an obd2 car, you can still convert it to obd1 and it wont cost an arm and a leg.

    No, you need the ECU that goes with the motor. The P28 is specific to to the D16Z6, and it can be chipped and reprogrammed to run other engines. Your car is OBD2, and if you're going to keep it that way and use the Y8 head, then you're going to want an OBD2 ECU, of which the P28 is NOT. Did you not know this?

    I guess I figured that you knew more than you do about ECUs since you were criticizing me for harping on that newb in the other thread...

    Your research wasn't bad it just went in the wrong direction. It's always better to match (X)gen motor with (X)gen car.

    if i were you i would just pull a d16z6 from a del sol (if you can find one) cuz most del sol were just bought be old people that wanted a weekend car with good gas mileage or drivin by women so they werent beaten on and get obd1 (unless your not electrically inclined)

    Well if you want to convert to OBD1 then yes, a P28 would be a great choice. If you want to keep it OBD2 (and you might, depending on where you live) then you'll want a P2P...
