Use your stock harness on the y7, and retain your stock intake manifold. Then run an obd1 p06 non-vtec ecu, and the dizzy from the d15b7. Also be sure to use your old injectors on the y7. not because the obd2 injectors are any different than obd1, but the y7 injectors have a flow rate of 190cc, not the standard 240cc. lastly ignore the ckf sensor near the crank on the y7, the obd1 ecu won't look for it
