ok so i am swapping out my original D16y7(no vtec) 5 Speed motor from my 98 ex and swapping in JDM B18b (not b18b1) OBD2 motor which is also 5 Speed. and the place where i have bought my motor from, there was wiring already on the motor itself, and he gave me the ecu for that motor (its the original ecu that came off with that motor) its a 96-01 LS motor not sure of the exact year though!
my question is on the wiring harness! i have searched for over 2-3 days now and i cannot get the results for the JDM B18b LS OBD2 motor which is going in a 98 ex with a D16y7(no vtec)!
ok so the question is about the CKF Bypass Trick - do i need to perform this on my wiring?
also do i need to mod the IACV wire trick?
which wiring mods (others that i have not listed) do i need to perform on this motor?!?!
and as far as i know my mechanic is going to hook up the wires coming out from the LS motor into the LS ECU.
is that ^^^^ correct???? (also i have no idea when you guys are saying through the firewall and stuff like that... i just got into learning all this stuff and in the past 3 days i've learned a lot! but not enough, so please bare with me here, thanks!)
im a noob when it comes to swaps... this is my first swap and getting it done from the mechanic.. he has already done the O2 censors, he also made the IACV 3 wires into the 2 wires to go on my engine... also i ordered the 99-00 SI throttle cable for the right length... all the other linkage, mounts all the hardware i got and has been put into place.... the only thing holding up the swap is the WIRING! so please if anyone can help me now is the time!... thank you all for helping !!!!
ok so I've been doing some research and please correct me if I'm wrong! i need to use the wiring harness from my D16y7 motor, but plug that into the P75 obd2a ecu that came with my B18b jdm motor?!? and not use the ecu that was originally in the car for the D16y7 motor?
^^ this is what I'm confused about if someone can clarify me on that! :) ^^
