    hey i swapped in a 96 b18c from japan into my 96 honda civic hx like about a year and a half ago, but now its time for emissions and when i hook up an obd2 computer to check for codes, it doesnt communicate. I was curious if anyone had this same problem and how i could go around this and make it read... [​IMG]
