    this is my first swap. i have a 91 civic hatch std, got the engine out now from a wiring stand point is there anything else i have to to other than the four wires? because i was comparing the plugs from the 2 engines and one is way diffrent. so is there anything you need to change for the b16a i'm kind of stuck.

    Unless it's an Si, right? I don't think he said so in his beginning topic...

    Also, it depends if he's staying OBD-0 or going to OBD-1, on how much work he's actually gotta do...

    correct. however he said it was a std model, which is dpfi.

    to OP: staying obd0 is fine, but you will still need to convert to mpfi. as well as run the wires for vtec solenoid, vtec pressure switch, and knock sensor.

    plus there is the issue that the pr3 will be looking for 2 oxygen sensors
