searching...

Well I couldn't communicate with the e-bay seller that had the wiring harness and ecu, but I couldn't get in contact with him. I dont know if I should continue on e-bay or go to honda-tech. I dont really know what the parts should be worth so that is making it a little difficult. What should a d16y5 cylinder head be worth anyway?

I can relate to you my experience with a d15z1 cylinder head. I originally purchased one for $60 on ebay. I sold it again a few months later for $35.

The gas mileage engine parts don't have a very high demand, so you might want to lurk on honda-tech and post a few WTB ads. You can probably get it for around $50.

I think you can find an ECU for around $30-40. Once again, the low demand forces the price way down.

Alright, Do you think I

Alright, Do you think I should stick with buying a new 5 wire O2 sensor? I think that would be the best even though that will be a pretty penny.

If I were you i'd try to see if someone parting out the HX engine, etc. will also part with their five wire o2 sensor for cheap. I managed to find one for $25 on honda-tech a while back. It's not as good as a new one, but it was a LOT cheaper.

I say to get it running first, and then worry about the little stuff.

once you have the stock

once you have the stock connector for the o2 sensor i believe you can buy the ntk wideband replacement sensors from any source and just change over the pins...should be the L1H1 sensor available from any wideband/tuning distributor...

I've found it's worth

I've found it's worth checking www.car-parts.com when looking for parts, they are sometimes a bit more then Ebay, but also tend to be local so you save on shipping.

One of the links matt posted

One of the links matt posted about the vx head is selling a 5 wire o2 sensor.

I would not put a universal bosch type on a honda.

No, I was just saying, because you can find the bosch ones for like 40 bucks and it's very tempting.
