    I have a 89 CRX that I am swapping. everything is bolted up right. I kept the old intake manifold so that I didn't have to convert it over to MPFI. I had to do some wiring to get the z6 dizzy to connect. But it still wont start, is there a way to get the old dizzy to bolt on? PLEASE HELP!

    I plan on doing a mini me swap on my 97 ej6, I got the stock y7 block and am trying to figure out if I should go y8 head or z6. Would appreciate some insight on the differences and opinions. I plan on getting it turbo'd later but thats after I get the rest of the car done. Thanks for the help.
