    ive just swapped in a h22a into my civic with a p13 ecu . the thing is the revlimiter kicks in at about 6800 - 6900 , im thinking this isn't right because i have seen them rev to about 8000 stock . has anybody else come accross this ? or have any ideas .
    thanks

    il be getting a skunk 2 inlet manifold in two weeks so that will be ok , the p30 and p72 are for smaller engines yeah ? they probably have diffrent fuel maps i expect . at least il see if it redlines higher

    do NOT run a p30 or p72 on an h22 unless its been chipped and has a custom program on it.

    Not only do h22's have different sized injectors than the b18 and b16, the fuel maps are very wrong for it.

    If you are throwing a code, fix your code first. There is 0 use in diagnossing a rev limit problem while you have codes showing.

    ELD is wiried into the distributor wiring harness and has nothing to do with automatics, if that was the implied reference.
    trace it down and make sure its wired in correctly.
