    is this DOHC ZC? - if your DX had the original engine harness and was running DPFI, you don't need to do anything to the distributor connectors - they plug right into the DOHC ZC distributor

    here is the CPS (yellow arrow) - the black arrow is pointing to the green connector

    if you have the OBD1 DOHC ZC and are running it OBD0, you need the OBD0 distributor and you need to add the Cylinder Sensor on the end of the exhaust camshaft

    so i have to get the cps with the connector on it but dont i have to connect it to something or i just let it hang and hook up c1 and c2??...and plus almost all the sensors are broken off....on the side of the intake manifold that still good but i dont kno which one goes there and there is the one way in the back thats kinda in the middle and the one behind the throttle body and a extra one on top of the throttle body do i need that one or not???...it looks like when i close my hood its gonna snap off.
