D15b block with P08-1 head with D16Y8 ecu


New Member

So here's my situation I busted the original engine on my 97 civic ex. In a rush to get it fixed I bought an engine with a D15b block and a P08-1 head. A friend who was going to swap the engines for me said that the D15BY8 would fit and work in my car. So we did the swap the car runs but I have a check engine light with 3 codes P1337, P1259, and P0325. The car still has the original parts like dizzy, alter, a/c compress, ECU and Harness. Please tell me everything I need to change, replace, add or remove in order to get the car running right. The car does not have good accelertion after a stop, it feels like its gonna stall, it has no power when going up a hill, rpms fluctuate. All my friend did was swap the engines. He was going to help fix everything else but moved out of state and i cant get a hold of him. So I need major assistance for ever1 and any1 who can help.

Thanks in advance to every1 who will help from your time, knowledge, and expertise.

Aren't you supposed to use the p28 ecu with the p08 head?
