    how can i tell these things?...
    1) weather or not my ecu is obd1 or obd2?
    2) weather or not my engine harness is obd1 or obd2?
    3) weather or not my engine (b16a) is obd1 or obd2? (i dont know what car it came out of.....

    last thing...someone told me i need to make some hybrid harness for my engine because it has an obd2 ecu (not sure if they know their stuff) and the engine harness is from obd1....my car has a wire cut so that the fan is always on or else it wont turn on...know anything about this?

    What year is your car? Is there a number that follows the "A" Such as B16A2, B16A3? Or just B16A.

    B16A is usually OBD0 from factory - what ECU do you have? - it will have a sticker on the case that says 37820-P??-???? - what distributor do you have? - on one of the attaching arms it will have a number like TD44U - chances are good that your car still has the original engine harness

    There are castings on the head above the exhaust that look like little clocks, they will tell you the year, (and month and day to I believe) the motor was made.
