    I don't have a Vtec controler, but I am wondering if it adds a good amount of hp. Does the Vtec work good on a stock ECU?

    Thak you

    I'll tell you what B told me, "Sell it."
    It's worth more sold than it is in your car.
    To answer your question, No.
    And VTEC works fine on a stock VTEC-ready ecu.

    those vtec controllers are awesome for a cheap way to manage your engine. However if all you want to do is change where vtec hits then there are cheaper alternatives. But for turbo and internaly modified engines they are a great alternative to an aem or hondata unit.

    "great alternative" ?? hardly.

    5 years ago, they were all we had to play with. Now, there's unlimited options out there that not only are cheaper, are fully tunable applications that do more than just trick your ecu- they re-map your.ecu.

    yah, there are great options out there. However there is nothing in the same price range. You'll never find any piggyback system for 200 bucks.

    again, who want's a piggy back?

    crome = free
    chip kit = 65 bucks or so.

    borrow a wideband and an ostrich from a friend, free.
    or buy 'em, and sell 'em for nearly 90% of the cost you paid for them when you are done with them. $20 bucks? case of beer?

    still well under 200 bucks.
    fully tuned. not hacked, more power, safer.

    piggybacks are for children.
