The 1. 5 isn't the si motor...the si distributor is from the 1.6 l sohc
Neither will work...you need the distributor from 89 integra and if you can the ecu as well

As well as more...this is all in the FAQ

The engine is a cz out of a si i kept thr dist that was in the engine and the wire harnes what i dont find is the pig tail for c-212 to the ecu. something is wierd the wires are at the pins on the ecu but they dont ring out per the drawing i have and the ecu codes 6 i am confused (wires from sensors to c212 no wires from c212 to ecu wires at ecu and seem to be the rire colors where are they going and i still have no spark and believe i have wired the dist rite with the exception of the ignitor *White) wire which started this c212 connector fubar
