    Hey guys im very new to Honda's. I bought a 92 CX for $1,500. It runs but smokes like "Cheech & Chong" , Also Backfires like a bitch. so instead of putting the money to fix it. i rather just swap it. im looken to swap in a D16 Vtech. But have no clue how to wire up Vtech, if the mounts are the same, or if the stock cx trans will bolt up or not. So i was wondering if you guys could help me and guide me in the right direction.Thanks

    you are in luck by having a 92 model - the wires for the VTEC are already in the chassis harness from the ECU to the engine bay - on the passenger side, find the 14-wire connector coming from the firewall - the orange/white wire in the chassis side of that connector is for the VTEC spool solenoid and the orange/blue is for the VTEC pressure switch - just run wires with pins to the engine harness side of the connector - green/yellow from spool valve to orange/white - blue/black from pressure switch to orange/blue - connect the black wire from pressure switch to ground

    :thumbsup: that is right.if you can pull some pins from a old civic shocktower, with some wire, and take out the little rubber grommet and repinned those two and then run the wire, it looks more professional then splicing in.

    First of all, don't thread-jack please.

    Secondly, the P07 is meant for the Civic VX, which has a slightly different type of VTEC. I don't know why they would have used that ECU on a Z6, but you'd be better off with a P28...
