    I got a 1992 Honda Civic DX Hatchback stock 1.5 L D15 engine non vtec 4 cylinder auto tranny. Swapping a 1.6 L D16 VTEC auto tranny. I got the P28 ECU and because my car is a 1992 the wiring for the ECU is already hooked up. My problem is I have the stock non vtec engine harness on the car. How do I run the plugs for the Vtec and pressure sensor? I didnt get the plugs for the vtec solenoid or the pressure sensor either is there a way to bypass them or where can I buy them? Do I run a wire from the VTEC Solenoid and the pressure sensor to the shock-tower where it connects with the ECU and connect the wires to the opposite side of the connector? Where can I get the pins for the plug? Thanks for your time

    best option for the plugs is your local pick and pull then e-bay or Craigslist

    You can. I spliced mine to the other side of the plug, to the wiring harness that runs through the firewall because I didn't want to go through the trouble of trying to fit the pin. If you go that route, the solenoid connects to the Orange/White (orange wire, white stripe) wire on firewall harness side of shock tower plug. The pressure switch connects to the Orange/Blue wire on the same side of the same plug. Be sure to solder the connection.

    You're welcome

    I'm guessing your D16 is the D16Z....if so.....

    Just get a D16Z6 engine harness

    I picked one up in Nor-Cal for $60 in April

    There under a $100 somewhere close to you

    Then its plug and play for you

    You can also use the VX hatchback harness too

    Just make sure its USDM
