I have a b8 bottom
y8 head
I bought a 89 dpfi convertd. 2 mpfi wired wit vtec and I streetlights jumper harness of a guy on craiglist note complete harness is 89 headlight to tail light
now the motor came from my eg I
it had the d15b8 proseries im wit no name fuel rail
spoon header 3 in exhaust
the bay harness was a vtec. one with the p28 running it
my question is how duz a 8 valve motor run on a vtec ecu
and run perfectly fine? Peppy and everything I redlined @ 55k just about that and still take. a ls da I was hamazed wen I raced hat guy and I didn't evn heat my tires he did and for a while to


anyway I finshd the swap I got fuel I got a spark looks faint tho
it cranks no fire im using a aem can gear question when I time the mini
e wit a adjustable can gear do I advance or retard it
another thing is I'm getting fuel in the chamber cuz pulling the plugs they r not wet but smell like gas
I have both dizzy the td41u and the 42u and need to no how to test them wit a tester aka a multimeter
the compression seems gud I don't have a tool for that but wen I crank it a gud amount of air goes out the header and I Chang's the firing order and the cranking noise change like for the better but idk if im getting closer or not umm
I ground the yellow wire on the jumper and it duznt give me codes. and the cluster only light the check and the highbeam for thhat being lit im guessing cause I have finished running the driver side wiring for the lights plz ppl I don't need to get kick off here to I need this car running everything has bin installed as of two weeks ago help

Make sure timing is set properly, check your ecu for any c.e.l. Codes, and stop talking like an idiot. Im using a smart phone as well, don't play dumb.

And we don't care how your 89 HF smoked a LFA yesterday, plus it's frowned upon as a community. Welcome to Hondaswap!

just statin it was cool for a 8 valve wit bolt ons take. a ls ok thats it anyway I set timing to book then thought of the sticky from dseries and nothing there answered whether to advance my aem. cam gear or retard it that really is my question plus I still have to test my dizzy to see if its gud but havent found a diagram show how to test it
 
and its was a d15b8 8 valve in the eg wen that race happend fyi as for the cell i ground the jumpers yellow wire and get nothing from it
 
I was thinking of pulling the valve cover and checking what way the lobe on the cam for no.1 im thinking the exhaust valves r open instead of the intake ones my reason for this is that the motor rotates freely but dont start another reason wuld b the 180 out thing wit mini mes what u guys think
 
and im hear that check the lobe on no1 if it facing outward it tdc but wut is the correct way to check the tdc wile the head is on the block
