D16z6 motor swap in CRX

08-23-2007, 01:25 PM
I've been looking around for some time now and i keep seeing a lot of answers to this question and confusing answers at other forums so i figured to come to the good ppl at AF.

I kinda messed up by not going through the right procedures when i did my motor swap. A few months ago i dropped a D16z6 in my 1990 CRX Si cuz my timing belt went up in my original motor and bend 2 valves. i did the swap w/o the ecu so right now my vtec is not hooked up. i am getting everything ready to hook up the P28 ecu but i wana make sure i have everything. im electronically inclined and im intending on doing this myself.

Right now my set up is the D16z6 engine with the D16a6 harness (i dont know why the mechanic used the stock harness and kinda made me mad) and the stock CRX ecu(i think its the P06).

i know im going to need a jumper harness and i think the o2 sensor is in my exhaust manifold just not hooked up. besides the P28 ecu and jumper harness am i going to need?

im doin the same swap d16z6 in a crx but i need a jumper harness too. the ecu i have i think is a chipped p28. Im just not sure where to look at for a jumper harness. dont really know how to research for it.:banghead:

if i am thinking correctly i believe that the z6 is an obd 1 correct? and the crx is obd 0. so you could either manually run the wires and splice them yourself or get an obd conversion kit. that would be an obd 0 plug on one side and an obd1 plug on the other.
