    they are both OBD2, so you shouldn't have any problems with your wiring harness. i know more about obd1 than 2, so if any of this is wrong, someoneplease correct me:

    you will need to run a wire for a knock sensor

    the civic si ecu is obd2b, not obd2a like your car is wired for. there are conversion harnesses for this.

    :worthy: listen there are tons on kids on here doing swaps with b16a2 which is what 99-00si havs if you can get the motor harnesses off of one of them it would make it so much easier for you all you do is uplug the stock harnees from ecu feed it through the firewall install the b16a2 with the correct b16a2 harness and once again feed it back through the fire wall and plug it into the ecu its as eays as that all the rest of the harnesses are the same if you have any other questions feel free to email me at Poot9191@msn.com
