    If your hatch is MPFI do not convert to OBD1, keep it OBDO. It's easier...... to me anyway.

    You will have to add like 4 or 5 wires on the harness to the ecu.

    If your in cali and installing a obd1 engine in a non obd car. Then you better go obd1 if you wanna make it street legal.

    Plus OBD1 has more options when it comes to tuning and standalone ecus.

    you'll need an obdo to obd1 adapter should be plug and play from there...have to get the engine harness converted to obd1 for the distributer and injectors.

    You get the adapter and add a few wires and change a few plugs. 4 hours max.

    You could redo your entire harness or spend 100 bucks for an obdo-obd1 conversion harness, run 5 or so wires, ad a 4 wire o2 sensor, and change injectors and distribtuor and plugs. (I did my conversion two years ago so I might have forgotten something and I am drunk right now.)

    blown90hatch from honda-tech.com sells 'em for $170 shipped. i got one and works like a charm. 30 minutes to install.

    conversion harness

    i converted my crx to obd 1 just b/c there are more options as far as tuning systems go.
