you should definitely take that to a dyno tuner and not touch anything yourself.

good , don't do it, this was the biggest bunch of fake crap that ever was sold as car parts. There have been many complaints of Engine problems, check engine codes , lean conditions burning out engines, engines blowing up, and people have added a cold air filter and chip and could not even get the car to start.

For the most part, if you do not know what you are doing and your vehicle is running excellent right now, do not mess with it. I went to my mechanic and he said if it ain't broke don't fix it.Save your money its going to do a lot more good in your pocket

im confused as hell! r u tryn to put a vtec head on a B18b with an automatic tranny or doin an engine swap dude??? if ur doin a head swap than u need a vtec ecu from a GSR or type R integra, or SI civic as well as the engine harness. also if ur ganna be using ur LS auto tranny than the ecu must come from a car that was automatic or else ur tranny wont shift into gear. also ull have to have the head resurfaced and get a new head gasket due to that u cant use ur old one.

if ur doing an engine swap than u need the harness & ecu the same way as the head swap. not too hard to do. but simply u could just swap the head if its cheaper. why buy just the engine bc of the turbo?

safest route is to get a stand alone unit....but you can always chip an auto p28 ecu for your application...there are too many chips to choose just gotta figure it out for urself on which one u want....
