    should i buy a obd1 dizzy and would that be it to convert it to obd1 and if the ecu is obd2 will it plug into my civic because the ecu i got plugged right in but the civic wireharness would not on the engine

    OK ROOKIE, THIS IS WHAT IT IS, IF YOUR CAR IS A 94 IT'S OBD1 ....KNOW IF YOUR MOTOR IS AN OBD2 YOU WILL NEED TO USE YOUR STOCK HARNESS OR A 94-95 GSR HARNESS IF YOU WISH NOT TO RUN AND CUT SOME WIRES, OBD1 INJECTORS, OBD1 ALTER, AN OBD1 DIST AND OR OBD1 P61, P72, P30, AND LAST BUT NOT LEASE A P28

    IF YOUR COUMPTER IS OBD2A IT LOOKS LIKE THIS OBD2A

    AND IF YOUR COUMPTER IS OBD2B IT LOOKS LIKE THIS OBD2B

    IF YOUR CAR IS ALREADY OBD1 PLEASE DONT CHANGE IT OVER TO OBD2 :thumbsup:

    It should work with an OBD2 distributor if all the wiring is for OBD1... but the safest solution is to make sure you have all OBD1 components.

    IF UR WANTING TO KNOW IF THE MOTOR IS OBD1 OR OBD2 HERES HOW YOU CHECK. DOES IT HAVE ONE OR TWO O2 SENSOR 94-95 HAVE ONE WHICH IS A HEATED O2 AND IS OBD1. 96-01 HAVE TWO O2 OXEGEN SENSORS WHICH ONE IS PRIMARY AND THE OTHER IS SECONDARY AND THAT IS OBD2 ALSO HONDA PUT A CRANK ANGLE SENSOR IN 96-01 AND 94-95 DONT HAVE WHICH THAT IS A GOOD WAY TO TELL. LET ME KNOW.

    THANKS STEVE

    let me guess the problem your having is the plugs well what you need to know is that the plugs are diffrent. 94-95 are diffrent plug types then 96-98 and 99-01 are difrent to 94-95 are round and 96-98 are square type ill get some pics and show you.if your wanting to use a d series altonator it wont work on a b series and the civic injectors wont work becuse they are difrent to. your best bet is to change all your compnets to a 94or95 gsr altonator,distributor, intake manifold parts. does this help you ?????????
