I dont know much about Canadian models but D-series can only go with D-series, and B-series can only go with B-series.

for the wiring you will need to get an ECU from a 92-95 1.6L sohc vtec (P28). not sure what you guys call them up there but that is from an 92-95 Si hatch or Ex down here. then there are 2 additional wires that need to be ran, one for vtec solenoid and one for oil pressure sensor. and also the oil pressure sensor will need a ground wire but that can go to the chassis anywhere , not all the way to the ecu. This head swap is called Mini-Me or Mini me. search either of those for alot of details.

ps. this swap will raise your compression anywhere from 10.5:1 to 11:1 depending on what headgasket you use. So if you're planning on boosting you might want to re-plan.
