    Your options are:

    1) get a OBD II --> OBD I conversion harness

    2) Have you old ECU chipped to run the ITR motor.

    Both are just as good, except there are some tuning issues with the OBD II computers, they don't like it. So if you are planning on adding anything down the road, IMO you should get the chipped OBD I ECU, and go from there.

    Damn captions! Turn them off. Don't be an asshole. The key is only about 2 sixteenths from the letter a.

    Caps Lock, as in capital letter LIKE THIS, captions are the explanatory comment or designation accompanying a pictorial illustration.

    Yeah dont get the conversion harness buddy, get your current ECU programmed like 92B16VX mentioned. You will never be satisfied with just a swap, and you will always want more power, and a OBD 1 ECU will allow you to tune more freely than a OBD 2 ECU. Its the better option for you in my opinion :thumbsup:
