    I just purchased a d16z6 for my 92 civic hb, i currently have a d15b8. The motor i purchased by itself without the ecu, trans, axles or anything. Can i use the stock trans, axles, and ecu with the d16z6. Also, does the d16z6 pretty much just bolt right in or do modifications need to be made to the chassis? Thanks for the help guys

    you should be able to use your axles and your trany but imo i would get an ex or si trany cause they have better gearing. you will also have to change your ecu to a p28 and get the engine wiring harness. its pretty much a direct bolt up but you will prob have to change the drivers side motor mount. and since its a 92 you shouldnt even have to run the vtec wires.

    super easy it will drop right in and hook right up but you do need a p28 ecu, and like said above its a 92 modle so the vtec wires are already there no need to run new ones

    Is there a website or a respectable place to acquire a p28 ecu and wiring harness? Thanks for the help guys.
