    hey blanco ! the rulebook says stock motor,no cold air box's,no turbo,no aftermarked springs and so on,nothing about engine swaps lol-i seen on the referance page that the z6 is a vtec,will i need a different harrness to do this ? this is fast and growing class here in ky. the integra's are coming on strong-i'm not a newbie to motors or racing just to these type of cars,all these ecu's and electroics is stuf i've never had to deal with-thanks a bunch

    to put it in your car you'll need an obd0 to obd1 conversion harness, but other than that I believe that it should be a straight drop in.

    yeah, today is actually sucking pretty bad. bought a valve spring compressor thats shit. also broke 2 bolts for the vtec solenoid. great day lol.

    I'm pretty sure then if you pull the entire engine harness and replace yours with the z6 one and the new ecu then you'll be good to go, but don't hold me to it. Blanco knows better but I don't know where he is.

    b15..I don't know about or have ever heard of a b15...b16 maybe typed 15 by accident? well whatever, b series don't interchange with d series.

    good luck on finding a good z6 though, check some craigslist and the for sale threads sometimes you get lucky

    eh its going alright, I'm waiting for a buddy of mine to tap and dye a couple of bolts I broke for the vtec solenoid :(

    d15 -- do you know the full engine code? I'm pretty sure it'll fit though,

    I guess it kinda sucks that I decided against putting a b16 in my car or i'd have a nice stock a6 motor for you lol,

    where exactly are you located?
