    A DOHC ECU for a SOHC motor is a definite problem.

    You should definitely get the correct ECU.

    if u want from a B16 dohc to a D15b engine, u need a P2E ECU, I have one here at my house I would sell for like $40+ shipping. But it will not run right with out the ECU as all the timing maps r off ect ect
