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 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.
