    D16A6 into 6th Gen? Crank Sensor A Problem??

    So I have a D16A6 short block that I was hoping to toss into my EK for a daily driver, but I'm concerned about the crank sensor. Is this swap even possible? Where does the crank sensor mount and can I transfer it to the A6?

    CROME D16Y8 Stock BIN file...

    Cannot seem to find a stock map for a D16Y8 anywhere... It is my understanding that there is a completely different timing setup from a Z6, so using a P28 bin file is out of the question. Anybody have or know where to find a stock Y8 map?

    D16Y8 MAP sensor wiring / pinout

    The previous owner of my Y8-turbo had completely chopped off the stock MAP sensor plug to wire the Motorola 2.5 BAR map sensor. I need to re-wire the stock map sensor to pass NYS inspection. I have been through 4, yes 4 stock MAP sensors trying to figure this out. The motorola 2.5 bar works...

    This is really weird... please read

    First off, the car works fine, only CEL for IACV which is not activating for some reason... When I slightly press the throttle (as if in a cruise or slowly accelerating), the boost gauge responds with a change in VAC and the S-AFC shows a change in % of throttle (indicating the throttle plate...

    Boost ga. reliability vs. Map sensor readings...

    The other day I noticed something... my autometer boost gauge shows me maxing out at 14-15 psi right now. My Apexi S-AFCII (used for gauge purposes only) tops at 82kpa (converted to 11.9Psi). With the SAFC getting that reading from a Motorala 2.5BAR MAP sensor, which would you say is more...

    B Series cam gear same as D Series?

    I have an AEM adjustable cam gear laying around for my B18 block that I want to install on my D16Y8. Before I go tearing things apart, can anyone tell me if thats going to fit? I would think they would be basically the same, but if someone can tell me if they are or not for sure, that would be cool.

    A little advice... Overheat when stopped

    My turbo 97 civic tends to creep up in temperature when stopped. Cools excellently when moving, stays at around 180 degrees. When I'm stopped for a few minutes, it will reach a max of 210 degrees which I'm pretty sure is not good. The radiator fan is definitely working, but I guess I'm...

    I have a D16Y8 in my 97 Civic with an OBD1 conversion. I get a code 14, and the car stalls out unless I keep my foot on the gas when the engine is cold. Idles just fine when the engine warms up. I can clear the code, but it just comes back again when I start the car. Brand new IACV too!!! I...
