    Hi
    (b16a2 sirII into a 1992 civic vx vtec) I just finish the swap my self and the car runs great BUT the vtec is not kicking in plus i have codes(have not checked wihc ones).. i have 3 plugs left out.. (2 of them seem to conect somewhere to the throtle) the other one is a square one...
    when i look at the original b16a2 civic sirII hardness this plugs are not there. can this be a problem??..
    I also have NOT coneected the o2 sensor..
    I AM USING A p28 ECU.

    THANKS ANY HELP WILL BE REALLY APPRECIATED >>>>

    it amazes me the amount of people that don't pull the codes when they appear.. chances are that pulling the codes will tell you what is not connected as well as what is malfunctioning...

    if you have a cel, i wouldn't even be trying to engage the VTEC.

    pull the codes. or tell me what color wires are going to each of the 3 plugs.

    here are the colours of the cables.. THANKS A LOT GUYS FOR THE HELP.
    1) small round plug
    -red
    -yellow/black

    2) big round plug(looks like tps plug)
    -yellow/orange
    -green/white
    -white

    3)square plug

    #1 is the EVAP purge control valve


    #2 is the MAP sensor (if the one wire is yellow/red instead of orange)


    i'm still searching for #3

    are you sure it's not the O2 sensor thing??

    what do you mean by the 02 sensor thing... :unsure:
    well all of the plugs are plug where they are suppost to be.. but i am really worried as to how or as to where to connect this other 3 plugs.. there is no other sensors on the engine that i know of where i can plug this harness plugs...

    the o2 sencor for sure is giving me a code because i still have to change from 6 wires to 4 wires (also wich wires do i get rid of for the o2 sensor)....p28ecu

    CAN IT BE THAT THE ENGINE (b16a2 sirII) does not come with EVAP purge control and the map sensor, BECAUSE THIS PLUGS WERE NOT IN THE ORIGINAL B16a2 harness i got with the engine..

    thanks a lot pills for the help...

    do you have a 4 wire O2 sensor?? i can direct you if you have that one, but i dont think you can wire a 5 wire O2 to a p28 that i am aware of

    i thought those were 5 wire for some reason .. oh well.. i would try to get your hands on a 4 wire O2, as i think that the VX o2 requires all 6 wires to run and you can't wire that to a p28 as far as i know..

    there is a chance still.. i would pm "allmotormonster" and ask him

    My car is at the shop and my Helms is in the back,but i'll give you what I got.

    These are the wires for your o2,it is seven wires--unless it is the California model,which has a four wire o2.

    1)WHT
    2)GRN/WHT
    3)BLK (1)
    4)YEL/BLK
    5)ORN
    6)ORN/BLU
    7)WHT/BLU
    8)--------

    This is what it looks like,and it can't be plugged into anything else.

    You say there are some around the IM,what DO you have plugged in?The MAP,IAT,did you plug your EGR back in?Try to get some pictures,or tomorrow when I get to the shop I'll bring my Helms home.



    EDIT had Helms at home oops,number threee is plug C130 EGR valve lift sensor,you won't use it the B16 does have it.Pills is right about the others they need to be hooked up and the B16 does have a evap purge.

    i got a jdm b16 sirII a few months ago. it didnt have an evap solenoid on the motor or a plug for it on the harness. im using the p30 ecu that came with engine and its not throwing any codes. i guess not all jdm motors have the emissions stuff on them.

    Ok,here are the plugs you should have left

    This is the plug into the EGR lift control next to your distibutor.

    [​IMG]

    Here is the one to the EGR control box on the firewall.

    [​IMG]

    Other than that the o2 is the only other one that should be left,and it is pictured above.

    Here is one of the EVAP
