    Just go buy an obd 1 distrib, ecu, injectors and you can use your stock harness.

    see, I tend do disagree. I have an OBD II motor in my 92 Hatch, and I just plugged and played. NO cutting or nothing, and everything seems to be fine!

    wrong- you only need the obd1 ls ecu. Why dont you tell me why you would not use the obd2 injectors and distributor?

    What would you need a conversion harness for,you can run it with a OBD I ECU and it all plugs up.
