    I tried on HondaHookup, but I didnt get many replies...

    OK, I have a 94 del Sol with a B18C5 swap....I have had this idling problem since it was done, but thats not really the problem. The problem is when ever I get 50% or more on the throttle the tach starts to freak out, but the engine revs up normal until about 5200 and then starts to chug and sounds like it wants to cut out...I wonder if the ECU is fried....so ya...Can you guys help me out here... :worthy:

    What ECU you running? I would agree, check the distributor. Find someone else with a obd2 b series and try it

    well, did you check the distributor? sounds like timing to me also, check that out before you think its your ECU.
