I have the perfect solution for you but I'm moving out of state. I can convert PM6s to have Z6 maps and vtec output. And launch control. Read here. I'll be back up and running in a few weeks hopefully.
Other than that you can convert to OBD1 and run a P28 ECU if you want.

either a p28 or a p08... if its a p08 then you only need a 1 wire 02 sensor...if you run a p28 you need a 4 wire o2

yeah your gonan need to do that too!, i have a manual pm5 out of a 88-91 civic dx , if you need that you can holler at me and you can get it for cheap..

but MPFI is a must first

your gonan need a crx si or a d16z6 (92-95 civic ex/si) head and intake manifold with all sensors, and obd1 injectors...there is 109241498194 posts on this on honda-tech.com

if you get the z6 head your gonna have to vire vtec too...

boomslang makes conversion harness's for what you are doing! or fabrik8 off here
