Alright, i have a 1994 eg civic which has been sittin in the shed for about 7-8 years, it was imported in 2005 and saw tge road for about 8 months, it has 108,000 km on it and the reason for it goin in the shed as far as i can tell is that the timing belt snapped and bent valves, it had a d15b vtec engine in it and it had a wire tuck done too. Now, i got a d15z8 engine out of a 1997 ek and attempted to switch it over, i did the timing belt, water pump, replaced all the gaskets ( intake, exhaust, rocker cover ) the clutch has now been done as well as the release bearing, i have an obd1 loom in the car, i used obd1 intake, fuel rail, injectors, there was a hondata ecu in it but i picked up a p08 ecu to make sure its gone back to standard, so i put in the d15z8 engine and nearly all plugs matched up, when i turn the key to the on position the starter spins and keeps spinning and if i turn the key to start the car the car starts but the engine shakes alot and will only stay started if i keep the key turned would my best option be to put the obd2 looms, ecu and fuseboards in then re-wire my dash to control the instrunents? All ideas welcome! Car is due for full re-spray in three weeks so wanna have it goin before then! Cheers!
If its not jap, its scrap.
