I'm guessing the d15b is the one that came in 92-95 civics? Is yes...
Just use the obd2 injectors, dizzy, and engine harness. Then run the ecu jumper obd2a to obd1. Run p28 ecu.

^^^ your correct. I've seen this done and it had hasport mounts. Any difference in subframes? Jw... The d15b does not have a spot for the evap purge solenoid to bolt the manifold either. So you'll have to figure that out too. I can't think of anything else off the top of my head. What engine was in the hx? A y7?

I don't think he does, but I don't have any experience with the OBD2 wiring so I don't know the specifics.

As for distributor a jumper harness can be bought and used or you can rewire it.

Use the y5 distributor, alternator, and mounts. Fir the evap... just forget about it bcuz you can just use the ecu jumper harness and run a p28 ecu. The p28 ecu will not be reading the evap as evap is only on obd2 and newer. Pm me for more questions and help.
