I am new to this site and notvery good with the whole search thing. I am looking for someone that knows how to wire a d16z6 engine into a cx hatch. I have a rough idea on what needs tobe wired im just not sure what diff. routesI am able to take. Also I do have the EX that the d16z6 came out of, and it does have the harness still intact. If anyone could help me out it would be greatly apreciated. Thanks

if you have the ex harness, your good to go. If you use your cx harness, you need to run 2 wires from the vtec solenoid to the ecu, and a ground from the vtec solenoid to the tranny.

if you have a 92 cx its already prewired for vtec, otherwise you need to run the wires and dont forget you have to install a new o2 sensor and wire up the heater circuit cause the cx is a 1 wire o2, all others have a 4 wire

the only cx that came prewired for vtec was the 92 and other year you have to wire up vtec. Its not hard i just put a d15b in my car and it was cake.

Thank you very much for the help, does anyone have any pics or even just a little more detail about what excatly I have to wire. I would like to just wire the vtec rather than swapping the harness but if anyone could tell me which way would be easiest I could be on may way. Thanks again for all the help this is a great thing you guys have here.

If you have the engine out of the car it would be easier to keep the engine harness on the d16z6 and it just becomes a plug and play ordeal. What year is your CX?
