    sojer thanks for replying to my troubles so many people will just read it and move on.
    no unfortunately i do not have the ecu, I was told by some honda kid that it would work fine, I would rather know i need it for sure before paying 100 bucks for it. do you know if it is required?
    i was informed the v tec will not work but at this point i would just like the car to run.

    as far as posting on this site some sites require you to up your post count before your able to start a thread.

    8sec, thank you for that. a positive answer would be great. if i do need the ecu do i need to match the number on motor? (theres a number on the motor that looks like a vin on the actual block)

    the 2.2 will run the car, it just wont run at its full potential and the obvious- no vtec.
