    I have a 96 civic with a b18b1 swap. My speedometer is not moving at all. Could it be the speed sensor?
    I also need a Catalytic converter but I'm confused as to which kind to buy. I have a Spec'D Tuning Catback exhaust system for a Civic and M2 performance headers for b series. But i need a Catelytic converter and have no idea where to get one. Any suggestions?

    Check Engine Light (codes)? Could be the speed sensor or a wiring problem. Not really enough info or diagnostic yet.

    Get the catalytic converter for your chassis. It will fit the B-series header. If you live in CA....it must be CARB exempt.

    Thanks I live NY, and I have someone that will soon check the codes. I guess I should wait till I get my codes checked. And thank you for the info on my catalytic converter.

    If you're running open header, that it probably going to mess with your secondary o2 sensor and is probably the cause of your code

    it already had a code on it before i changed the piping. nd bought new piping and sensors. because i had no 02 sensors connected at all .
    right now i have bseries headers and spec'd tuning catback exhaust with a test pipe along with the 02 sensor connected. its a really tight fit. i am going to go to a local shop to add some length to the test pipe so it will fit snug untill i get my catalytic converter.

    I had to lengthen my exhaust a little bit when putting a B-Series in it.

    Could have more than one code. Update when you figure out the codes.

    I am guessing I have the wrong ecu.
    I am not familiar with ecu's so do you what I should buy and where, and will it just plug in when It arrives

    yeah thats another language to me lol.
    I've been doing everything on my own since my car isnt insured yet, So if I buy a P75 Ecu for a manual transmission that code can be erased?
    and I guess il check online for one or go to a junk yard

    That code won't exist as the p75 doesn't have vtec functionality.

    Make sure you get a 94-95 one only.

    work on getting your exhaust together first... it's probably a big factor
