    You need a B-series transmission if you want to use a B-series engine...

    Well you'll definitely need an appropriate ECU. The B16 has VTEC, the ZC doesn't. As for the harness, I'm not sure. Getting an OBD0 B16 will be your best bet as far as stuff lining up, but you'll probably need to lengthen or shorten some wires here and there, definitely add the VTEC wiring, etc. Check with Rywire (Rywire - Online Store). They can make you a custom harness to suit your needs...
