    I think it's probably a better idea to ask people's opinions on stuff BEFORE you buy it... :confused:

    Well, what's the condition of your H22? Is it stock? Intake/header/exhaust? Head work? Cams?

    In my opinion, for a mostly stock motor, you don't really need to be messing with chips. If your motor is significantly modded, then I'd suggest getting your ECU chipped by a reputable company and actually having someone tune it to work with your motor setup.

    I'm not really a big fan of "blind tunes." You might be alright and pick up a few horses, but then again you might actually hurt your motor. A lot of those chips you see on eBay just advance your ignition timing and set the VTEC engagement point down lower. Unless your motor is built for the specific tune that's on the chip, you could end up causing your motor to knock eventually.

    One more thing...

    I just read some stuff on the P13. Apparently it's not an ECU that can easily be tuned by any of the standard tuning programs.

    Honestly, I think your best bet would be to swap out the P13 for a P28 or P72 and then have it chipped and tuned using Chrome or Hondata.

    send the chip back, get a refund, and use the money to get your engine really tuned. and he said what's wrong with the p13. you just didn't read his post.

    With this ecu chip it says that it disables the knock sensor, is that good or bad
