    1. When I do the b16a swap in my 91 Si, I'll need to run this VTEC subharness from rywire, correct?
    2. Is there any modifications I'll need to do with my harness to make it work?

    with that being asked,

    3. do I use the engine/wiring harness from my car, since it's an SI?
    4. What all do i need to buy to make sure it connects like a champ?(harness's, etc) besides the VTEC harness, when I do my engine swap?
    5. Does anyone have a checklist or something for the needed swap parts??
    edit: found one

    Thanks
    -Andrew

    simply splice or re-pin the connections at the ECU.
    use stock Si harness, mod it to work on the B16
    might need new O2's...

    i have the rywire harness, not installed yet looks pretty straight forward.

    Thanks I'll keep that link handy.
    I'm still kind of hazy on what all is required on this swap, and hate posting new threads, but I havent seen a complete, perfectly recorded write-up on what wires go where and what I will need to add to my harness to work!

    Anyone have a complete writeup on what ALL goes on with this swap?
