    ill try to convert it to obd1. use si/ex/cx/ect harness(92-95) and use a p28, cheaper. thats just my toughts, no knock sensor and lots of chips for ecu.

    or use ur harness from the car and get a 96-98 vtec ecu.

    its up to u

    No keep your stock harness and just run the p72 ecu from like a 97gsr.. But keep your existing wire harness, thats what im using in my 98 hatch with an ls/vtec. If the motor is obd1, just get an obd2 distributor and obd2 injectors and thats it...

    no its not ok cuz your car is a 98 which is obd2a and your trying to use a harness from a 99 which is obd2b, just use your stock ex harness and the obd2a p72

    do not get obd1 harness, if you want obd1, use stock harness, get obd1-2 jumper and use a chipped p28. you say you have a p72, which is a gsr. you'll have early vtec which will kinda sucks for that motor.
