    What can you do to adjust the Engine Speed Limiter to make the car faster? Is it safe to remove it... or does that damage the Engine?

    you can chip the ecu to remove the rev/speed limiters... but if you dont have the internal work on the engine done to back up your newfound ability to rev to 10k then you're going to blow up faster than Iraq

    If you want a JET chip for cheap, then follow these instructions....

    1. Buy JET sticker.
    2. Place on ECU.

    There ya' go!

    I really shouldn't be typing this but, I got one of those "spoon" chips off E-bay... Turned out to be the best 20 bux I spent on my civic. Bumped the timing and fuel curve and removed the speed governer. I didn't get 50 HP or anything, but 20 bux to remove the governer and pull a little harder from 5000 up sounds good to me. It also set my VTEC at 5100 instead of 5800.

    **Flame suit equiped** :D

    was it really a spoon or just a knockoff... i am weary about buying a pre burned ecu from someone who has no idea what mods i have on my car. the lower vtec engage and remove the speed limit is a plus tho...

    Nothing "Spoon" and 20 bux go in the same sentence... It was a knockoff..
