OK, my mini-me is coming close to being finished.
I have a 2000 CX
Y7 with a Y8 head on it, vtec solenoid is there

Parts laying in my apt...

97 Y8 IM (5 speed) Fuel rail and injectors and hoses are on
98 Y8 TB with MAP and TPS sensors
2-wire IACV (still need to get some bolts to attach to the IM)
Chipped P28
OBD2 > OBD1 harness
DC 4-1 header
header, IM, and TB gaskets

what else should I have ready before I do this swap?

I have had some problems with the wire conversion harness for my car (obd2-OBD-1). I am thinking about caulking the conversion harness in order to keep those connections from loosing continuity. A few months ago I was driving down the road and suddenly I lost a cylinder. It sounded like I was driving a BAD ASS WRX. It turns out the number four injector wire was getting pulled out by the passengers foot. I have since moved the wires into a more secure location however I do think that RTV is not a bad idea.

And yes it seems like you did your research.

haha thanks

My harness was made by phearable, so it is pretty high quality, but ya, I might wrap it all up to try to prevent anything like that from happening.

Also, I need a TB cable to replace my Y7 cable (its going to be way too long)

What all cables will fit my application?

Why do I need a headgasket?

The head has been on the car for like, 20K miles
r u saying ur driving ur car with the Y8 head on it? or that u replaced it on ur Y7 head. if u have replaced it on ur Y7 head then replace it no questions asked, a headgasket isnt something that u play with

You can replace it, but you don't need to, I'm still using my y7 throttle cable on my y8 im swap.

if your just doin the IM the head should never come off. Maybe he meant the gasket between the IM and the head, you will need a new one of those. Go with Hondata.
