saw a bunch of conversions for b16's but i'm talking about my d16y8. If switch to obd1 without a turbo will i make any kind of power increase? just wondering in general what switching to obd1 does for my motor. Thanks.

you'd only want to switch to obd1 if you have an ecu that only requires 1 sensor. it wont give you any more power..if you were to have a turbo kit you'd want to convert to obd1 but seeing that you aren't it wont do anything but make your car run bad because you'll be either running on the wrong ecu or having your ecu tell your motor to be doing things it shouldnt be doing
