    ok we just put a 97 d16y8 in my buddies 92 hatch. it ran great for a few days then it started to cut out at around 4500. i was using the y8 dizzy but i switched back to the z6 dizzy that we knew worked but the problem still there. when we were driving it today it lost power and when you hit the gas it would slow down. we stop and it idle for a second then died as the cel came on. tried starting it again and no go so we check the motor(oil, plugs, wires ect) no problems then we try starting it again and it fires right up. we get it home and check the codes. but when we connect the two wires to check the code we get a sold cel. and its running a chipped ecu from xenocron.com 450cc dsm injector with 10watt 10ohm resisters and 8 lbs of boost. it ran fine with the z6 the problems just start a few days after the y8


    thanx for any help

    Well, I'm still fairly new to the Honda scene myself but if you're getting a solid CEl light when you run Diag. to pull codes, it sounds like a bad ecu maybe? See if maybe you can swap the ecu for another one and see if that helps.
