ok, to start. This is really a 91 JDM civic, but it's the same body as the 92-95 Civic. Second, the motor is from my wrecked 98 integra gsr. I'm tryin to figure out what all I need to get my swap done. The thing I'm stuck on now is the ECU.

I'd like to know if I can just use the OBD2 ECU from the integra or do I have to buy an OBD1 ECU?

If I get the OBD1 ECU, what all do I have to do to get it to work with the motor?

If I keep the OBD2 ECU from the integra, what do I have to do to get it to run the motor in the 92-95 civic?

I know that if I get the OBD1 ECU, I have more options in power upgrades from ECU work, so I'd like to know what I have to do for either option.


I wanna be sedated
OBD II ECU equals you buying a conversion harness.

OBD I ECU equals you buying...an OBD I GSR ECU :)

Check all the plugs in teh bay and the cabin to make sure that it is wired OBD I, and not OBD 0, or a mix of the two.
