I just sold my 91 civie and am going to buy a 95 or 96 9c1. I have heard there are some small differences in the obd computers and fuel injection. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

the OBDII thing is getting to be less of a problem with tuners and such.........you can even get it converted to OBD1 but i dont know if it would pass an inspection

I would suggest finding a nice one of either year

No difference in injection just the pcm, tuning cost more for a 96 but if you aren't going to modify if heavily you can use a OBD1 swap pcm for everyday and the original pcm for inspection. I would however agree, just find a nice car and don't worry about the year.

I'd say 96. Sorry to here you sold the 91, you never did contact me so I could give you the nitty grity.

I have a 95 9C1 and I'd get another one before I'd get a 96... keep in mind the hidden expenses during tune ups (four O2's instead of two, for exapmle). The PCM thing can be a pain if you have to swap them out all the time, as well. Just my .02

Thanks guys, I'll probably take whatever comes first, by the way anyone every deal with government cars in Miami? they seem to have a good selection of 9C1s in stock.

For a real SS Id say 96, for the floor shift and analog gauges. But in a 9c1, either would be good. However a 95 should probably sell for a little less and have the easier OBD1 setup.

I'd say 95 either way. OBD-1 native is much nicer... 96 and up will have as mentioned both higher maint., harder reprogramming, and tougher inspection standards (many states now plug directly into the PCM for 96 and newer cars).

Course, even with a real SS I'd say 95. The 96 cluster in an SS sucks since you lose gauges... with a 95 you can easily swap a Z28 dash in which beats anything ever put in Impalas. Floor shifter can go in pretty easy too. 95s also had hardened pushrods, 96s don't.
