    hey guys im having some problems. i have a 98 honda civc dx (obd2).

    i put in a gsr obd1 motor, im using the obd2 dx engine harness. im also using a obd2a to obd1 jumper harness with a p28.

    now my car will not rev up when i give it gas, well just a little...then itll cut off and die. does anyone know what the hell is going on i think ive tried about everything and asked everyone and nothing.

    thanks guys.

    ^^^agree....or you need to express what you did to deal with the VTEC wiring.
    Injectors wiring could be a problem too but not sure about obd1-obd2 mix up.
    If it was me and I didn't personally know someone to give me a 'good' chipped p28
    I would look into an obd2 p72 and get dizzy, alt, and injectors obd2 as well. Most
    people will say it is fine the way your heading...and they're right just not what I
    would do to fix the problem. I figure the same obd is the best policy
