    i had a b18a before now i have a b18b1 from a 94 or 95. i can get it started but only for a second probably less i have spark and i have fuel. im wondering if its because i took the icm out of my old dizzy and put it in the new one because the old one was fried. could that be the reason or could it be because i have bad gas. please help me im getting pissed off with it and i want to finish this swap soon.

    some igniter modules are interchangeable and some are not. if you check your codes and see a code 15 for the igniter then you'll know thats where your problem lies.
