    I have a carb'd 1.6L and want to swap a throttle body onto it.
    Besides the throttle body what else do I need?
    Sensors, harness, etc. etc. etc.?
    Are some throttle bodies better or easier to use for custom jobs?

    The throttle body is basically a fuel injected carb.
    In basic terms. I just need to know what equip.
    usually is needed to go with it to make it work.
    If I pull one from an early 80's honda civic 1.6 - 1.9 L
    what else would I need to make it work?
