    96-97 delSol DOHC VTEC P30 to be exact.

    OR, you can convert to OBD1 and use a chipped P28

    If you are in a state that requires emmissions testing, then get the OBD2 ecu and do it right.

    If you don't care, then a chipped P28 will work fine with the OBD2-1 harness adapter.

    I have stock chips for the B16 that work in the P28.

    if you decide to go OBD1, both I an HardLowrdRanger have P28s that can be setup to run B16A2s.

    I've had kids come to me for ECUs because they couldn't pass emissions testing (here in Cinci, they're surpisingly strict due to Cinci being one of the most polluted areas of the country... Industrialized river VALLEY) and I've been able to help every one that had a healthy engine pass just fine.

    James (HardLowrdRanger) will be able to help you customize the chip your receive more than i will be able to. If you're looking to get a chip that suits your needs very well, I can't recommend his services highly enough. Every chip he sells is customized to some degree. I refer ppl who want lots of customization done to him cause I don't wanna deal with it and he has better tools than I do.

    In any case, you can PASS tailpipe testing emissions with an OBD1 ECU, but I do believe that this will cause you to FAIL California Smog. Good luck.

    Passing smog in cali is easily done too, just not a referee inspection... You'll need the correct ECU for that... =)

    At any rate, one of us will be able to get you setup correctly... No matter what state you're in...

    p28's are from sohc engines
    and p30s are from dohc engines..

    the p30 checks for a knock sensor and the p28 doesn't

    thats the quick explanation
