swap d16a6 into a 90 crx DX
« on: October 26, 2012, 04:49:19 am »
was wondering if you guys could give me a few pointers on the wiring side of this swap. really just wondering what parts of the wiring harness i'm gonna have to change out. this is my first build/ swap, but there's only one way to learn so in head-first i go.

d16a6 is a bolt in swap

you can use the existing mounts from your 1.5 d15b

wiring (since you did not say intake) if you are running mpfi then it is a couple of wire additions and changes.

There is some useful info under the faq ver1.0 under how to's.

i think its dpfi. on the intake manifold it says PGM-FI. from what i see on this thread, it seems im just gonna have to switch connector s and pin a couple more wires.
