It isn't the same. so you're running obd1? the ecu and the dizzy have to match. I thought obd1 was 22? teeth and the obd0 and obd2 are less.

I'm pretty sure it'll run the same.
I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work. Difference in OBD wiring and pick-ups inside the distributor itself. Hence why I have a y7 in my 93 Del Sol using a z6 distributor.


You cold maybe try adjusting the timing a little bit

It would run better with a rebuilt one that fits. I can't see any small HP gain you may get being worth the re-wiring you have to do.

Sorry I just like to keep things simple.

im running the b7 dizzy on my a6/y8 motor in my 92 civic. no problems, and runs great. its not worth it to switch to the y8 dizzy

So you're running obd1 right? I'm obd0 right now and need to pick up a d15b7 dizzy to convert over to obd1. Then b7 is supposed to bolt right up with no mods on a a6/y8 combo.

what i meant was that one doesn't perform better than another. and of course some dizzy's are OBD specific
