    So I bought a Civic HX and they motor swapped it to a d16y7 but they kept the old harness and ecu so it throws vtec malfunction code. I recently just bought the right ecu for the motor but the ecu is obd2a and I need a ecu jumper harness from OBD2a to OBD2b and it seems like no one makes them...

    So to make a long story short I was planning on boosting my d16y7 this summer to make 300hp cause it was a goal for a bit. I told some friends at work and my buddy with a Miata says he's gonna boost his as well for 300hp. Considering how light a Miata is and the power he's planning to push, I...

    I have a 1998 DX auto, the engine has 293k mi on it and is probably burning a quart or more oil a week (400mi or so) so it is definitely done lol. I want vtec and manual trans so I was going to swap in a y8 and manual combo into it when I can. What parts do I need to do this? Here’s what I have...

    Just did my oil today and checked my plugs, no oil fouling them, and started the car up, put my thumb on each spark plug wire cap, wires 1,3,4 are feeling stable, yet when I put my thumb on plug wire 2, I feel a steady thump, or knock, no audible sound in engine, or during startup, reving up...

    Hello, new to the site, after a few hours of googling and searching threads to see if a K20z3 intake (RBC intake mani) will fit on a d16? im assuming it wont be as easy as bolt on and i will either need to do some hefty modification to make it work, or keep looking for a Y8 intake. quick...

    I'm nearly finished with the mini me swap for my 99 dx auto sedan and was wondering if running the p2e ecu for a little while will hurt anything aside from not having vtec. Should I run the y7 injectors til I get the new ecu?

    Hi Everyone this is a help thread I suppose. Long Story short, my brother's 98 Civic lost compression on a cylinder in his d16y7. He got a 99/00 EX engine and ecu, and I told him I could swap it for him as I thought he got a obda engine, but that was not the case. Here are the main questions I...

    Since high school I’ve always wanted a little Honda since most my friends had 90s era Hondas growing up. I’ve driven quite a few from ef with sohc vtec to a GSR dohc vtec. I had some extra cash and decided I wanted a little project car and found something for a great price. I picked up a 98...
