Oh hey you're talkin about doin the obd1 sheesh I thought you meant use obd1 sensors for an obd2 swap lol

Truth is I'm still on the fence about the obd1 conversion ... I'm planning on a build thread soon in which I'll raise the question more thoroughly

I just want the least electrical headache possible, but if obd1 isn't too bad then the conversion may be worth it...

Well, my advance input is don't bother with OBD2. It's been done but the only reason I could think of for doing it is just for the challenge.

I would buy new. They're not that expensive from online US dealers (bma, fap99, blunt on r3v). These things go bad and the newest one you'll find used is probably gonna be 10-20 yrs old.

I have an OBD2 ignition coil harness for sale. If you're interested send me an offer!

**Edit** Actually i'm pretty sure I have both the crank and cam sensors for OBD1 as well that are in working order if you decide to buy used.
