    what would be a good obd1 ecu to use for a jdm b18cr? I bought a p30 was gonna chip it w/ a 4400 vtec x and 10k red prog. its the chip that has the map rite? so would it really matter which ecu I use as long as its vtec?

    im running a P28 on mine with no problems
    i would HIGHLY recomend you get something to tune with though hondata is very good, at very least get a VAFC

    most chips run VERY rich, this not only means you get shit for gas milage, you also are losing power

    hondata sells a P28 all set to hook up to their piggy back system... if you plan to run a hondata id suggest getting their P28 as well

    if you get a P30 just adjust your fuel maps and VTEC engagement

    setting VTEC at 4400 is way too low (you will lose mid range)

    a 10K rev limiter is good for nothing other than blowing your engine

    a JDM B18C/R makes its peak power around 7900-8100

    reving higher than that on a stock engine will do absolutly nothing for you

    by "stock engine" i dont mean bolt ons and shit i mean cams, springs, retainers, pistons, rods, sleeves, valves, etc....

    get whatever ECU you end up getting
    get whatever tuning unit you end up getting
    then get your ass to a dyno and tune it all properly
