    Hey everyone ive searched around for this but cant get no definate answers. I currently am running a UKDM civic lsi EG hatch. This has a D15b2 engine in it but i was told that this is running obd0 how hard would a mini me to a d16z6 be and also how hard would a B16 complete changeover from hmotors be. I know this question may have been asked before but i cant get no definate answers thanks for any help.

    Sorry about that my car is a 1993 i have also seen obd0 to obd1 harnesses would it be a good idea to do that before the engine swap.

    your car is a obd1 the d16 will drop right in and bolt right up and the b series will go in with motor mounts.. both good swaps and easy

    Thanks for that i was told that all EGs were obd1 it was just that i was told by sum1 ellse that mine was obd0 because it had a d15b2 dpfi in it it which are obd0 engines. But thanks for advice i will be getting motor sent out soon but do you know any companies that will ship to england as i have found a couple. I was looking at hmotors or tigerjapanese i know that i will get what i want from hmotors bet tigerjapanese seem to be cheaper do you know anything about them. thanks again.

    No, it isn't. The LSi is a weird obd 0, obd 1 hybrid, trust me, I freaked when I pulled a OBD 0 ECU out of a 93 chassis. We had one in our yard before I left, looking it over you have to do the same electrical conversion as if it were OBD 0, with some difference at the fuse box, I do not know them, the chassis part of teh swap should be a straight up swap though, we abandonded the idea before getting into it. Of couse this was a German model, which I believe is the same as the UK one. You can pull out your ECU and compare the ports to the pictures in teh reference section.

    Nope, the LSi is a euro model, I believe there's a japanese version, probably the MX, but if so it has a different motor

    Thanks for that info about the obd ive been thinkin about the swap and have run into sum money problems so i think im just goin to be changing my car to mpfi which shouldnt be 2 hard. But in the near future i will be gdoing this change and have found a obd0 dpfi to obd1 mpfi wiring harness so i will be buying that from Boomslang Fabrication - Wire Harnesses for Fine Automobiles and then just use an obd1 motor. Thanks for all your help tho and when i go on to do the motor swap i will put up pics. Thanks
