    I just swapped a B18C into my civic. After about a week of getting new parts that would fit we finally dropped the motor in over the weekend.
    The only questions i have now are wiring related.

    If anyone could help that would be great.

    I originally had the stock D16 in my 93si. i am guessing it is OBD-1. I was wondering if it is possible to use the wiring harnes on my b18c and just add the vtec lines...etc.

    the engine came out of a 89 crx and was wired for use with that car. would this be a problem?

    any help would be appreciated.

    shouldnt be a problem. youll probably need to wire up the knock sensor (i think the GSR has one) and the IABs.

    thanks for all who helped and answered my questions!
    my stress is finally over.
    everything wired up nicely with no problems. my existing d-series wiring harness plugged right in with only a few minor adjustments. car is running beautifully although the engine light is on. could be because the ecu is chipped? or a couple of other reasons. gonna have it checked by a pro.

    cheers all!

    i was wondering if anyone ever did a swap and your car runs good at first then it will not start up right away or it dies sometimes.
