Motor wiring harness...which one??

91 STD -> Y8 swap -> converting to OBD1

I just bought the dist. from a 93 ex but I need the wiring harness for the motor. (I have the one from the ecu)

I need to know which motor harness will work. I was told that a DX harness can be modified to make it work.

But is there an easier way with this swap? Maybe the harness from the 93? or the 97? (motor is a 97 ex)

What will work and what is the easiest? Thanks!

Jack

repin the ecu plugs, change the distributor plugs, change the o2 sensor plug, and fuel injector plugs.

i want to know why you keep talking about getting a 92-95 harness? the whole point of the obd0 to obd1 harness is so you plug 1 side into the p28 ecu and the other side into your stock harness. this is what it should look like...





8 wires have tape on them. they are the ones to be extended. 4 go to the 4 wire o2 sensor, 1 is for check engine light, 1 is for knock sensor, 1 to vtec, and the last i forget. and thats it. no 92-95 stock harness needed. you would need that if you didn't have the obd0 to obd1 harness and you wanted to rewire 50 wires. which is no fun i hear.

Oh, Ok I see now! For some reason I thought I needed to use the stock harness from another motor to make it easier.

But I was still questioning if there was a major difference between the STD and DX harnesses?
