Ok, So i have been helping a friend with his honda swap / turbo setup for a month or so.

Will Not Run!!!!!!!!!!!!!

97 EK hatch. Dx trim.
Engine Block: B18a1
Engine Head: B16 (off an early 90's civic?) we're not sure.
Intake Manifold: Skunk 2
TPS: stock off 97 civic 3 wire
IACV: came off 92 LS b18a. 2 wire. (car was 3 wire) Unplugged orange wire, and plugged 2 wires in
MAP sensor, GM 3 bar
Injectors: DSM 450's with inline 10w/10ohm resistors
Computer: Phearable.net P28 OBD1 chipped
Wiring harness: Stock 97 EK harness.

My last suspition is the distributor.

Things checked:
1...TPS (throttle position sensor), Perfect, reading .5 volts at closed throttle. No problems
2...IACV. Wires and plugs switched. Using iacv off 92 LS engine. Wires changed at ECU. A14 switched to A12. A13 disconnect. IACV voltage is correct. Direct power to IACV we can hear it click. IACV is working
3...GM 3 bar MAP. Wires are all correct. Signal, Positive, and Negative. voltage read, and correct for GM 3 bar. ECU is programed to read GM map.
4...Injector harnesses, reading voltage on all 4 plugs.

OBD1 computer.... OBD2 car... OBD0 engines/head
(*&#@*$)*% FKNG ----... i told him it wouldn't work....

Lets get it running.

Winner with a workign solution gets some paypal or free ****!!!!!!!

ummm i would check the distributor im doing an obd0 motor, an obd1 ecu, in an obd2a car also... you may have to repin the dizzy for the obd2a harness.. you may also need an obd1 TB and a 4wire 02 sensor!

Hey guys,

Its actually my car, we might have figured out the issue last nite. we were "brainstorming" and realize i have a distributor from a 99-2000 civic SI, and my harness is reading obd1. and yes it is converted to awnser your question, So that MIGHT be the issue.... im gonna try and get my hands on one asap and check that out.

we are getting fuel and spark, we assumed the spark wasnt at the right time... the only time the car would idle is by throwing brake cleaner in the throttle body

on which wire do u have the inline resistors?
dizzy - make sure those wires are matching the correct colors, and have good contacts
- also cehck the cap and rotor
did u put the ground on by the thermostat ?
are your spark plugs in the right order?, look at it from the passenger side it should read

cap and rotor are brand new. and as far as the distributor goes... does anyone have the right up on how to convert the obd2a harness to the obd1 harness? i have the nessacary plugs in order to do it. i just need the wiring diagram.

the thermostat is grounded yes I checked that.

I didnt realize the dizzy wasnt plug and play so we need the conversion harness write up ASAP! i know rywire sells it... but i really wana get this thing going tonight.

I did some reading. on other sites. some people said getting a new distributor wasnt nessacary. whats true about this.?

yes we know this.. Much easier said than done... we're still trying to figure it out. These wiring diagrams are not easy to find
So no paypal for you because you didn't help~
