    well me and my buddy just found out somethinf REALLY WRONG. [​IMG]

    when your ready to install the obd1 dizzy. match the wires!
    the only one you need to worry about is the
    THICK WHITE obd(0) it goes to YELLOW W/GREEN STRIPE! obd(1)

    my friend found out by chacking the honda books for obd0 and 1 and matched the wires. the moment he did the car started right up. just figure i'd let you all know so you dont mess up the wiring or your car [​IMG] mainly i did it so you dont get pissed of like i did.

    ripperbone: everything else was right. i dont understand though. My buddy said that even though the wiring is similar. The instructions ar for locash racing but WE HAVE AVID harness. Anyway, i need an b16 dizzy to complete my swap so ya'll look out.

    hope it helps.

    [​IMG] wow you trying to wire it yourself, I thought you had a conversion kit already. I can pm you the number to locash, I am sure he can answer any questions you might have.

    well i started today. unfortunatley it got dark on me real quick. I started with o2 sensor first. that took like 5 mins. just label them with some stickys or something. that way you know which wire to grab right then and there. Instead of looking through your books or instrucions

    ECU Adapter color ------- o2 sensor color
    white-------------------white
    blue--------------------orange/black
    red---------------------yellow/black
    Black------------------green/white

    your o2 sensor might be a little different in color if so go to the site ripperbone has above.

    then i tackeled the ecu. plug and play.thats it. Ran the last 4 wires

    purple-vtec solenoid
    white-o2 sensor
    gray-vtec oil press.
    blue-o2 heater control

    DISTRIBUTER
    i cut the obd0 side harness and switched it with an obd1 plug.I got mine from the junker
    obd(0) --------------------------- obd(1)
    blue w/green stripe------------orange
    bluee w/yellow stripe---------white
    Orange w/ blue stripe---------- same
    white with blue stripe------------same
    Orange--------------------------- blue w/ green stripe
    Thin white------------------------blue w/yellow stripe
    thick white-----------------------yellow w/green stripe

    PROBLEM
    because its an lsvtec (i think) the gsr dizzy wont fit right. The leg next to the vtec solonoid gets in the way. I started grinding it down a little but it was too late to work. Till next time. Other than that all i have to do is clean up my mess and hide the wires.

    The total time was about an hour and half. Mainly beacause i labeled the wires and already knew what went where.Look at the website Ripperbone posted above for more DETAILED instructions.

    88 CRX DX with lsvtec swap converting to OBD1

    well i had a bad day today. I went to finish up the car. The dizzy didnt fit. Had to grind some of the leg off. It still didnt fit. so i grinded some of the VTS. Just enought to be able to move it for timing issues. cleaned everything up and hid the wires. go inside the car and ...NOTHING. All it did was try. It never actually tunrned over.
    -checked the firing order
    -used better connectors for the distributer because i double checked the -wiring
    -looked at the ecu wiring and it seemed fine.
    -coil pack is good
    tomm. i'm checking to see if the main relay is turning on and to make sure all the powers and grounds have power and are grounded.
    I hooked up some wires that were left cut from the previous swap. So i'm going unhook them. maybe they were cut for a reason. damn this sucks. i thought it was going to be a piece of cake.

    well it was easy. I just can't figure it out ?! I mean the wiring wasn't that bad. Yeah i had alittle modding to do with the solenoid and dizzy but nothing major. I just cant figure out why it wont CRANK! [​IMG] i'll let you know when i find the problem. I'm sure it was just something i missed. [​IMG]
