no
they are OBD-0, you are OBD-1
they have a cable tranny, you have a hydro trany
it will cost you moreto get that engine into your car than it would to buy the right one in the first place

if you get the first gen then you need to change the distributor and injectors as well to get it to work with an obd1 ecu, just get the second gen it will be much easier and, by the time you get the first gen working with your car you will have spent as much as the second gen.
Plus in a few states (california for sure) the motor you put in your car has to be the same year or newer than your car.
You can go ahead and put a b16a in your car no one is stopping you, but it is more practicle to put a B16sirII in your car.
Good Luck.

no the OBD issue is not as simple as swapping an ECU .... you will be missing a bunch of sensors


for the 2nd gen if you get the full swap, you will need to run VTEC wires and thats about it

your wanting the b16sirII not the b16a2. the a2 is obd2 and the sirII is obd1. the a2 would be more wiring work and cost more cuz it's the newest one.... your wasting our time.... look the shit up in the search option or in our reference section. stop askiing us bullshit questions that you can find the answer for in two minutes if your lazy ass looked.

You are a waste of time. This site is not for being fucking stupid. Also, know is spelled K-N-O-W. If you're too fucking lazy to look the 3 billion b18b vs b16 threads, and to type properly, then you dont deserve to have any of your questions answered.
