    I got an amazing deal from a buddy of mines, a free civic hatch with ls swap in it.I am a new when it comes to honda and looking to see what I can do to get this running and going.

    Car:
    91 civic dx
    b18a swap
    obd1 converted I believe, but how do I no if it was done correctly?...
    MPFI wiring i believe, but how do I no if it was done correctly?...

    problems:
    -He did a wire tuck to it and there are a few wires still hanging all around. ( I want to just get a new harness but which one do I get?)
    -fuel leaks from were the fuel line meets the fuel rail, how do I fix that?
    -the trans feel real ruff to shift into, bad tranny?
    -with the wire tuck he also put in a crx dash, nothing on the dash works, I still have the old dash will that all work if I put it back in.
    -I heard it start once and it wont rav pass 3k rpm(have no idea whats going on there.
    -when it started it idle very very ruff...

    So can anyone help?

    thanks

    get a whole new wiring harness..it def. wasnt done right..the car not reving past 3k means its in limp mode..meaning your throwing a cel...
    you will need a conversion harness...or you can try to do your own
