Hey guys i am getting so confused on this engine swap mainly because of the wire harness. I got 2 honda civics one was a 98 EX with a D16Y8 automatic and the other was a 97 LX D16Y7 with a manual. From what i was seeing based on a lot of research was that i could just take the D16Y8 engine with the wire harness and the computor and just plug it in and go. But after i swaped the Y7 for the Y8 and plugged it in there was no spark. Everything else worked but not the distributor. I tested it and its good but i noticed that the harness has 2 plugs ove the driver side shock tower and the car inly has one. I tested continuity between that empty plug and the distributor and they were connected which i probably why there is no spark. If anybody could tell what i need to do thatvwould be great.
