    94-95 b18c's are obdI
    96+ are obdII

    you can swap a 94-95 in your car no with no problems

    if you get a 96+ you can use an obdI ecu, or you can use the obdII ecu with a jumper harness

    Why do you want to use OBD2??

    Your car is OBD1, there is no reason to make it OBD2.

    Yes you can swap in an OBD2 engine without changing to OBD2. You need to get OBD1 ECU, Injectors, Engine Harness, and distributor. You can use the OBD2 distributor and injectors if you change some wiring, but the OBD1 stuff bolts uo and is plug and play.

    my car is obdII and i made it obdI, trust me, you dont want to go obdII.
    the difference between the two is what the ecu looks at, obdII is more strict, looks at more sensors, is more "smog" friendly than obdI. obdI is easier to tune.

    obd2 sucks.
    keep your car obd1

    the real difference is that there is a 2nd o2 sensor after the cat.
    other than that, its the plugs that are different.

    if you have an obd2 motor to go in, its not too hard to make it obd1. run an obd1 ecu, and swap out the plugs from your d-series harness for the most part.

    we can give you more specifics as the time gets nearer and you actually choose a motor
