Hey everyone I'm pretty new to the Honda game. I'm deployed right now so I have metric a** loads of free time on my hands. I got a 89 civic lx for like 300 bucks that has no rust and the engine is fried so I don't really wanna waste my time trying to replicate the oem set up. Can anyone point me in the direction of doing an boosted LS vtec swap? Or just a plain boosted b20b is another option I was considering. I was planning on just ordering all the stuff I need while I'm gone so I can just crank on it during block leave.

Welcome!  What branch are you in?  Are you looking to retain the original motor or build another one?  Got any pix?

I'm in the army and I'm afraid I lost all the pictures of it when I switched from android to IOS. I'm wanting to do an ls vtec swap in it. My big question is rather than doing a mpfi conversion on it why can't I just throw a b series obd1 ecu in her and just run that. Or would I have to get a jumper harness. Like the mechanics is easy but when I delve into electrical and computers I just get lost. Please help! 😂😂

you will need the multi point for the injection system, duel point wont cut it. Its really easy to convert it.

So do an mpfi conversion. Also I should need a obd1 jumper harness to make the engine and ecu talk to the chassis wiring harness correct? It sounds right but I feel like I could be wrong so correct me if I am

yep, just need what ever jumper matches your ecu. I would get the jumper and the mpfi thing done at the same time since you will be down on the passengers floor board anyway
