    the 88 transmission input shaft will not fit into the 89 and up clutch disc - the 88 used a 21 spline input shaft where the 89 and up used a 20 spline - the easiest thing to do would be to swap your 88 flywheel and clutch assembly onto the Y8 engine, however, you would be giving up a little with regard to the clutch size - the 88 used a 200 mm diameter clutch and the Y8 used a 212 mm diameter clutch

    do you have every thing that goes with your d16y8 ? if so just drop it in and run your vtec....your going to probably have to change out your engine mounts..just run your full d16y8 and tranny that came on it.

    as far as your wiring goes you should probably make a jumper harness for ur injectors since your going to be mpfi now and that would take care of the whole obdo to obd1 problem but u still wont have vtec. i would honestly go on craigslist and find a shop around u that does aftermarket ecu's i would recommend a p28 chipped ecu for u you can get it purchased tuned and installed for like 100 to 150 bucks and that would fix all of your problems
