    I am putting in a JDM b16a(SIRII) into a 99 Honda Civic Dx(Coupe)

    My car is OBD2b and the B16a(SIRII) is OBD1. In order for this to work I bought a Conversion Harness OBD2b - OBD1 from Boomslang.

    We started the swap last night I already know that I need the plugs from the b16 harness for the Vtec Pressure Switch, Knock Censor, and Vtec Selonoid I have already ran these wires to the Harness.

    Now I remove the plugs from the b16 harness for the injectors, altenator and distributor.

    -We have the injector wired up and everything seems to have a good connection.

    -The altenator plug from the b16 has 4 wires and my obd2 harness only has 3 wires I was wondering what wire I do not use?

    -The distributor for the b16 has 2 clips

    and my obd2 harness only has one

    We match up all the wires except for the dark blue on the b16 distributor(on the clip that only has 2 wires.

    After looking thru manuals I think that the blue wire is the tach.

    My question is where do I plug this blue wire at?

    Thanks for the help :D

    Do I hook it up to the conversion harness or theres a plug in the engine bay on the drivers side that has access to my tach?

    either. theres a tach wire by the dash or the service connector at the shock tower on the drivers side and just run it into the ecu.

    no idea.

    quite frankly, i think the best thing to do would be to get an obd1 alternator from autozone. 94-05 del sol vtec has a b16a3 and is pretty much the same thing.
