88 crx Hf - **VTi** swap

Started a new thread since the old one was locked with old title.

I decided to put the D15B (d15z7) 3 stage vtec in my 90 crx hf. The engine/tranny/ecu/harness combo should be here on Friday(tomorrow).

I just ordered a 96 civic under dash harness which hopefully I can splice to fit the jdm ecu. I originally wanted to put the setup in my 88 hf, but its my DD and has some front end/steering issues so it will end up in the slightly heavier 90hf for now. I'm hoping to have the setup installed and running for my ~120mi commute to school 3 times a week next semester.

I am making an extensive collection of information about the d15b 3 stage vtec because the information is scattered and scarce. Will post when I get a final revision.

Hoping to bring my mileage into the 70s with this setup, driving technique and aeromods. Engine/transmission are rated 72mpg at 37mph in original heavier, less aerodynamic vehicles.

Wish me luck fellow modders!
