Hey guys.

I just purchased a type R engine from hmotorsonline

http://www.hmotorsonline.com/shop/sc2000search.cgi?what=page&item=30011

The jdm type r's are c5 correct?

it just says b18c and no number after it.

But it looks just like the engine as pictured.

the weird thing is that the battery cables are on the right side, so im just going to unharness them and hook them to the passenger side.

Also....I purchased a OBD2B to OBD1 converter from ebay, but it dosnt seem to fit the ecu that came with the swap

Is there a good link with a complete guide?

I couldnt find one searching.


Sorry for all the questions, and thanks much for your replies.

if its a JDM motor of course the battery cables are going to be on the right side. they were of course from RHD cars in the first place.

Alright, it looks like i need OBD2b to OBD2a

Does that sound correct to you guys?

The dude from hmotors specifically said i needed OBD2B to OBD1

This blows

Looks like i get to spend another 100

Thankyou for your help

JDM motors do not use numbers on the end. This is why it says simply "B18C".

As for the OBD2 converter, there are two styles of OBD2 -- OBD2a and OBD2b. You probably got the wrong one.

well said, straight to the point. point taken, thread should be closed now.

Hey Dan those are two excellent pictures on how to identify the different ECUs. You should add those two pics to ABP98LS's FAQ in the Articles section to help people out even more.

BTW OP if you need more info on the ECU check out that Article, might help you out a bit.

Also, here is a JDM vs USDM ECU. Did you get a JDM ECU shipped to you with the motor?




* edit nevermind i read p72 but my mind saw p73

i have a jdm p73 and its the larger version, i thought the usdm units were the smaller version and the jdm units were larger.
