Hey hey.

I have done building my civic ek3 with d16z6 turbo, and wiring in my standalone ecu! "maxxecu" now for the issue, i go with the oem dizzy as a trigger, but when we try to crank the engine, we get low signal so the car wont start, just backfire. I tried to change the sensor to i newer one, better signal, bur not quite good as my tuner says. wee look into the timing, and the timing is right. So just wondering if some one here know if i can convert my dizzy for another sensor like hall sensor ? i looked into the AEM EPM trigger, but can't buy it from
somewhere :/ and can't even find a trigger kitt for D series.. i am so confused, don't know what to do :p best regards

Use the 4-1 sensor, like you also need a VR conditioner.

the 36-1 sensor is pretty noisy.

I have no knowledge of this stuff. I just know I need a VR conditioner when I build my D15/D16 for my Honda Insight and use speeduino.

You could probably drill and glue a magnet into the camgear and use a bent piece of steel off the power steering mounting holes of the head to mount the sensor.

If you do not have AC, the crank pulley and timing gear and washer from a newer D series might work. FOr us here in North America, it would be the d16y5, d16y7, or d16y8 engines from 1996 to 2000, as they have factory crankshaft position sensors.

If you go that route, if you do NOT have air conditioning, that is a great spot to mount a sensor bracket.

yes the pump will fit .

You'll just have two dipsticks, or have to find a way to plug the hole on the Y8 pump :)
some people are just into that kind of thing..

what hole ?

i have done some more re search, i think my timing is way out, ill gona strobe the timing today again and try with the oem dizzy.
Y8 oil pumps have a hole for the OEM dipstick tube to go through.

Z6's do not, their tube is in the block and pokes out between the exhaust manifold.

If you install a Y8 oil pump to your Z6 block, you'll have to deal with the Y8 dipstick tube hole somehow.
