I know I'm a posting *****, but I would rather ask here, then pay for it. I'm ready to install my OBDI ECU with my coversion harness. I think I found the ECU..Is it the rectangular box on the upper left of the passenger seat?.. What do I need to remove, and where does the coversion harness hook into? I may sound ignorant, but I just want to make sure I dial it in.

your ecu is just below the glove box comp to the right. you may need to remove some carpeting to expose it. and yes, its a rectangular box w/ lots of wires attached to it. pull the harness out from the ecu, install the obd2 end of your conversion harness to your existing harness (should be male plugs), plug the other end (female plugss) to your obd1 ecu.

if u sit in the passenger seat.. ur ecu will be to the right of ur feet.. its suspended behind the right plastic wall of the foot panel.. under the glovebox.. haven't messed with my teg yet.. there appears to be a lil button holding down the plastic panel.. if its the type of button that connects to the carpeting to the back of the seats then it should pop right off.. but dont hold me to that..

in a civic u'd have to take off the plastic doorstep which is connected to the carpeting which you'll have to lift to get to the ecu under the plastic thingie to the right of ur feet..

just a question, and i don't mean to be mean or anything, but why are you converting? you do know that it's technically illegal to remove all that emmissions stuff in the odb2, so your car is now off-road only. i know you'll never get caught and whatnot, but unless you're going for hondata or something, i don't see the point.

more responsive to mods... with OBD 2.. the ecu won't reset to the new air/fuel intake with mods and OBD1 will

I.E.advancing or retarding timing.. OBD2 will set back to stock timing OBD1 will stick with your timing adjustment

Daboy, I should still pass emissions, but as a precaution, I just did mine before I installed the ECU. Good to go for 2 years..F, the cops and Virginia..I'm sick and tired of a bunch of zero's ruining my good time...Take these 16-18 year old drivers off the road..I'll out drive 90% of the people on the road..I'm not ****y, but most people don't know how to drive...If you think I'm full of S, see me at the track....sorry, venting!!!
