Default Does a chipped p28 work with a b18b LS-Vtec?

I have a chipped p28 in my LS-V swap on my EK, does this work?

my main question is, how do i tune the ecu? the previous owner said the ecu needed tuning? what does he mean by that? and where can i do it? thanks

the p28 is already chipped though, does it need to be chipped/modified again? it seems to be running fine on the ls-v, the previous owner just said i needed to tune it


chipped P28

vtec at 57

2step launch control at 4.3

Yes it will work, but you need to get it chipped because the basemap that's currently on the p28 ecu is for a d616z6 single cam and it will not run the ls vtec properly.

Go to your local tuner. They will open the ecu solder a new chip it into which will make it tuneable.

EDIT: So the ECU is already chipped. The tuner he went to probably just gave him a basemap then. The ECU will run the motor fine, however you can get more power by getting it dyno tuned or street tuned.

Talk to a local tuner. They will put your car on the dyno and get about 1-3 runs in and adjust the ECU to get the most HP out of it.

P28 is the best option. If it's already chipped then you're on a winner. Just get it on some rollers and re-tune the basemap.
