well, heres the deal. i have a 97 civic DX hatch (Sohc non-vtec/ D16y7) and im installing a 97 EX ( sohc-vtec/D16y8) engine. the engine came with a cut engine harness, so im left with the original one off my Dx.
Question: how do i wire up my 3 wire IACV to a 2 wire IACV? and what else is needed ( wiring wise) to make it work.
i need a car because it just getting a little too cold to be riding on my bike everywhere.
um… i just did this EXACT thing less than a year ago. i’m pretty sure the only wires i had to extend were for something small an stupid. if you want to look at the car that i did it on, pm 95mx6.
switching to the two wire IACV is easy. clip the plug off the 3 wire, get a plug from a two wire, and just dont use one wires. i’ll see if i can find the write up to tell you which wire to use. its really straight forward though, just put the harness on the motor before you drop it in the car, and you’ll see what wires need to be extended or shortened.
ONE PROBLEM THOUGH. you’re gonna run into the same code 91 problem that i ran into. its confusing, pm me if you want more info.
well i have the stock EX wiring harness with the plug ( cut at the firewall). would you happen to know which wire( color) i dont need? and yea i read up on 95mx6 for sale thread. ill probly just swap tanks later down the line. i just want the car running.
