    for what reason are you putting a p28 in your car???you do know that it will need to be chipped if used with anything other than the original motor it came with?

    I wasn't aware of that, he gave it to me along with other parts because some1 totalled his car. He said that he nought it from rywire. Is it costly? or even worth it? thanks you guys

    There is no point in putting that computer in your car if your car currently runs fine. If you were to put it in your car, you should be running the motor associated with that ECU from the factory. The air/fuel maps inside of it are specific to just that motor.

    I'll say it again, it's not a performance upgrade!
