Default 96 honda civic dx code p0453

i keep have this code: p0453

this is the background what i done to my car. The car came with a single cam d16y7 and it not have any problem. After i swap the car to a b16a2 the check engine p0453 pop out. Also i'm use the the 99-00 civic si ecu. I did a some resrearch i know its "Evaporative Emission Control System Pressure Sensor Malfunction". I'm not sure where to start check the problem. I was wonder does it had to do with the fuel tank pressure sensor? i'm not sure if the 96-98 civic dx have a fuel tank pressure sensor cause my old engine don't even have a canister sensor. Give me some help, thanks!!!

Yeah, it's the gas tank fuel emissions systems. Carefully check for a leak in the EVAP vacuum lines:
