    I finally blew the d16a in my 91 CRX and im looking to swap a z6. I've done a lot of reading and have decided that I want to convert to obd-1. From what I gather, this requires an engine wiring harness, a p28 ecu and the wiring between the ecu and the engine. Both the engine harness and ecu are easy to find, but where the heck do I find the rest of the wiring harness? is this a reasonable goal without a donor car? any advice would be really great. Just let me know if im on the right track.

    so after doing some more research i plan to get the obd0 to obdI conversion kit from rywire. I found a 1.6L SOHC V-TEC, but its JDM... does this mean that the engine wiring harness will not work on my left hand drive car? As I understand, a JDM wiring harness will put everything on the opposite side....

    nah... i was thinking somewhere around 1,000, not 2,000. I would appreciate it if someone would help me solve the backwards wiring harness problem.

    JDM parts are rare but it is worth it to have some genuine japanese domestic market quality parts.:)
