View Full Version : D16y8 to y7

08-30-2011, 02:15 AM
So, I shot my engine and my budget led me to downgrading my engine. .
I have a d16y8 M/T and I got a Y7 A/T engine with no tranny.
The engine didn't come with a wiring harness or computer.

Is there a problem if I keep my y8 harness?
Is there a difference in m/t and a/t engine wise?

I know I'll have problems with my IACV...
Can I just switch over to the y8 manifold and keep the y7 injectors?

I'm keeping my y8 exhaust manifold because the cat location and sensors, would that be a problem?
I might gain like a horse or two... I don't know though. Don't care about horses though, I need to get the car running in grade A condish so I can get to work and save money for the next updrading swap.

What other problems will I run into with this swap.
I'm new to Hondas, and I love 'em. This is my first engine swapp. I don't know what to do.
All help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks everyone!
