no, you'll use the harness that's already in your car. most of the plugs are in near the same location, with the exception of the few mentioned above that will just need to be extended. other than that, it's nearly a plug&play affair.
Ok got it, so ill use the Y8 harness and swap it over to the B18 motor and extend the few plugs that are short and its a done deal then?? Sounds alot easier then i was thinking. :bash

yes, it's pretty easy. there's only 1 or 2 plugs that aren't the same between the harnesses, which isn't a big deal. then the extension of a couple wires, and you'll have your vtec solenoid plug left over.

i have a D16Y7 engine and im planing to put b18c1 inside so is it the same process?
It should be the same. The only difference between the D16Y8 and Y7 is that the Y8 has VTec and the plug for it. I work on 5th gens, so I do not know where the oil pressure sensor is, if it has one. If it does, reroute it if need be.

i can't speak to that as i've not done that swap. there's plenty of information here from people who have though, and it should be fairly easy.

Basic 6th gen B-series Swap info

Assuming you have already purchased an OBD2 (96-98) B-series swap, here's some basics on what else you need to get it in your car.

Unless you got a b16a2 from a 99-00 Civic SI, you will need to get 2 mounts from this setup. The rear tranny mount and the driver side mount can be had for about $70 for both pieces. In addition, if you wish to use AC on the swap, you will need a 96-97 del Sol AC bracket. This goes for about $100. check local junk yards, or online OEM parts stores, or your local Honda Dealer may have some of these parts available.

On the driver side mount, use the mount from the SI and reuse the stock civic studs and any other parts that may be needed for this corner of the mounting process.
For the rear tranny mount, use SI mount mentioned above, but us the stock civic rubber.
If you decided to keep AC, use the del Sol bracket mentioned above, but use the civic stud and rubber. While the Integra/Civic SI AC parts look similar, they are not and simply won't fit.
For the front tranny mount, you can use the Integra or civic Si mount from the tranny, but retain your stock Civic studs and rubber. Again, the Integra/Si rubber looks similar, but it also will not work correctly.
Finially for the upper tranny mount, simply use all the stock Civic mount materials.

Now that the moutning situation has been taken care of, there are still a few things that need to be noted. You need to use the Integra shift linkage for your b-series motor, or you will need to cut/add/weld on to your stock d-series shift linkage. They are different lengths. It is highly recommended that you just buy the shift linkage from the Integra, and most B-series swaps now-a-days include them anyway.

When mounting the exhaust with the Integra OEM manifold, it may be necessary to cut your b-pipe a few inches so that the extran length added by the Integra exhaust manifold/downpipe will work with your stock cat and exhaust. You could also use an aftermarket header, and depending on the model of it, it may or may not fit without cutting the B-pipe. Know which set-up you are after before you cut anything. It never hurts to take measurements... and cut short. It's easier to make another cut just a hiar wide then need to have another inch for contact.

If you did not buy an obd2 swap for your 6th gen, things get much more complicated, and we will attempt to tackel that sometime down the road.

Ive heard that if I swap to a b16 obd2 I would not be able to tune it unless I got an ecu from an obd1 motor but then I would not be able to pass emmissions

So as to appropriately cover each angle this area will be separated into numerous segments. In the first place, its critical to choose what you're objectives are. In case you're keen on running 15 second quarter miles without issue or inconvenience at that point finding a B16 is likely your most solid option. A few of us are keen on running 11 and 12 second quarter miles. For this sort of execution it's imperative to design everything about that the motor is skilled and solid when requested to perform. Another piece of arranging that ought to be done before the trade starts is whether or the motor will be normally suctioned or have constrained acceptance. These are on the whole inquiries that should be replied before the trade with the goal that you're fulfilled when everything is finished.

Finding the Best possible Motor:

There are numerous motor decisions for every vehicle so we'll cover every one of them. First it's essential to comprehend that On Board Diagnostics assume an enormous job where motors are most straightforward and suggested. All Honda's 1991 and prior are considered OBD 0. This implies the motors don't use any oxygen sensors and have little in the method of outflows control. Next there are OBD 1 motors that are found in all vehicles from 1992-1995. JDM vehicles have generally been the best stage for the most "processing plant like" half breeds. At long last, anything from 1996-1998 is OBD 2. 1999-2000 is OBD 2b. It's additionally essential to recall that its solitary legitimate to trade in motors of the equivalent or more up to date OBD arrangement. In other words that an OBD2 motor can be put into a 1988 CRX legitimately and without many wiring issues. Thus its unlawful in many states to utilize OBD 0 motors in vehicles that ought to have OBD1 or OBD2 power plants. Obviously there are individuals who ignore these laws and guidelines yet its not suggested or essentially that simple.
