i believe you need a module from an eight to work correctly, that' s what makes swaps so hard on modern csrs nowadays.....


Are you talking about the wireing harness from the fire wall going to the disberator? or are you trying to replace the v8 module with one from a 4 cyl?


Sorry about my spelling


Distribtor is what I meant


Yeah I'm using an v8 module but idk what wires to use from the 4 cylinder.


get a v8 harness


No I think I can use the wire from the 4 cylinder distrubitor. Thats what I'm trying to ask?


you had the engine, you had the module, you dont have the harnes......
