    Hello,

    recently I've made swap from D14xx to D16Y8. Currently inside is P45 Accord's ECU (dont ask !) which I'm planning to replace. Now my doubt is which ECU should I get ?
    P28 or P30 ? Which is better for me ? Why ?

    Thanx...

    you CAN put just about any ecu on any motor. Will it run good is a different story.

    for the OP, just run the p28 if you're obd1 chassis. the p30 maps aren't remotely close for running a y8.


    Other than the obvious different fuel, igntion, vtec, and redline, the only difference between the p28 and the p30 is that the p30 has a knock sensor circuitry.
    other than that, they are pretty much the same thing... (usdm vs usdm of course)
