    Id.............................. check wiring at the ecu where its been modified , and if its a stockish b16 just with bolt ons put a stock ecu back in it you are just wearing the motor out revving it to the moon and lowering vtec crossover

    Seems like a wiring issue. wires improperly connected is my guess....like a short in the system.

    I was thinking something was grounding out or my jumper harness was going out
