Matt came this weekend, and we tried another ECU on my car, and it did the same thing. I checked the rotor on the dizzy and it's pointing to the right plug when everything is lined up at TDC. So I'm thinking I may have to replace the whole distributor. I already replaced the cap, rotor, and ICM. Like I've said before, the car runs (but sounds bad) when I advance the ignition timing beyond where I can bolt it up, and of course it makes it way too advanced (can't set the timing at all).
Any suggestions before I go drop a wad of cash on this?

Ok so I guess I'm getting a new dizzy...
for the 98 civics there's the Tec and the Hitachi units. I've been told I want the Tec one, the Hitachi is for the HX. What's the difference? I think I may have a Hitachi one now because the ICM is made by Hitachi. Would having the wrong one cause it not to run? Also if it makes a difference, the Hitachi one seems to cost a bit more.
