    Okay I just swapped my motor. My stock d16y7 threw a rod, I swapped in a d16y8, is there any ecu chip, or vafc or any type of thing like that, that I can make my ecu run vtec? or should I just buy the y8 ecu and wiring harness?

    you should just buy the ecu and harness but you can run vafc..or wire vtec to an rpm switch(cheap)

    For less than the price of a vafc you can get the proper ecu and run the vtec wires yourself.
