I have a feeling there's more to the fuel injection harness, considering the carburetor harness wouldn't have fuel injection wiring..
yes thats my thoughts as well, but the seller is the one saying they are the same, thats why im trying to double check before i go a head with it, im not worried about the rear of the car as that loom is intact, so i dont have to run some wiring to the fuel pump etc, im hoping it will just plug in if the dash loom is actually the same.I have a feeling there's more to the fuel injection harness, considering the carburetor harness wouldn't have fuel injection wiring..
from reading did the US not get carby EGs?My digital copy of the service manual does not show the carb harnesses unfortunately, but from threads I've read in the past they are not the same, though with enough peices from both harnesses, lots of patience and time, were made to work.

yes now that you've said it, it doesnt trigger a memory of there being different plug types, I was more worried about the connectors being similar to EFs than anything, but i was prepared to add wires to make the plugs match aslong as the looms were similar enough.They're different, you'll need to add the fuel pump wiring back into it at a minimum. You'll need to confirm the body style matches too otherwise the lengths of harness runs will be off and connectors will be missing or different.
I'm not 100% sure but i believe the EG changed connector styles between early carb models (which looked similar to the EF with that clear plastic connector) and later in production (they went to a light grey style connector) and they're not compatible. Just an observation from memory having hung around honda wrecking yards and pillaging parts for my various EF builds.
Adding EFI wiring back in isn't a big deal though if the body style and connector styles are the same.
I decided in my infinite wisdom that i would remove wires from the loom and do a wire tuck and quite possibly switch the pins in some of the plugs around (not sure if i actually did or not)What's the problem you're having with your harness? It's not repairable?

Front cabin harness.
According to @slo_eg8 hatch & coupe are the same
