    put your ecu on it and you will be good to go. the car would probably run with the vtec ecu but might as well just run the right ecu.

    Yeah that was a 15hp downgrade, but whatever haha. Assuming you switched everything properly all you have to do is swap the ECU and you're good. The air intake is different, but other than that you're golden. You will have a loose plug for the VTEC solenoid that won't have anything to plug into, just use electrical tape and tape it to the harness (don't cut it off, you never know what the future holds).
