Possible SRS System install on '90 CB7?

Is it possible to use the SRS equipment from a 92-93 and install it in a '90?

If it is possible, would you have to install the SRS ECU and head unit?



Sorry if this is a stupid question, lol.

Just wondering considering this is my first car (I'm 16), and it'd make me feel safer in a car that has an airbag for inevitable crashes.


Thanks!

I would imagine so. I haven't compared my 90 and 92 to see, but the 92 and 93 civics' airbag system is completely stand alone. You'd need the harness(es), airbag controller, steering wheel, and steering column.

Honestly though, if you're that concerned about it, it would probably be cheaper/easier/safer to sell the 90 and buy a 92/93 or a car with them factory installed.

Even if you got it all in place, there is really no way of telling if it worked except for crashing it.

the amount of work to do it would be crazy. better to buy a 92-93. if you like the 90-91 style better, you could just swap over all the 90-91 specific parts

Rollbar, bucket seats, and 5 point harness.
Messing with airbags can be sketchy.

From my understanding the airbags aren't really worth it in the CB as they seem to cause more damage than if you didn't have them. That's just for early airbag systems in general tho. The amount of force put out by early SRS systems was crazy, the CD accord and of course later generations are a lot better. I actually fear my airbag in my 93 coupe. I really don't want to be sucker punched in the face by it....
