    hi

    i'm joining this board from the UK - and need a little advice.

    i have a 2003 JDM spec DC5 integra Type R engine on its way to me to be installed as an engine swap.

    i have a heap of mechanical and plumbing issues to sort out - but have these in hand.

    one thing i know i will have to deal with is the immobiliser

    i have the ECU and the engine harness - but not the Key/fob

    question is - how do i get around the imobiliser - to get the engine to run.

    any input on ways around it or aftermarket ECUs would be very much appreciated

    thanks to the BB in advance

    garz

    OK guys - thansk for the posts and links

    can i check if i have this clear -

    i have the original cars ECU - but not Key

    however if i go to a UK honda delaer with some prooof of legal owbership they should be able to give me a new Key and match this to the ECU so that the immobiliser works as normal with teh new Key
    or

    i can possibly buy and fit a replacement little PCB into my ECU that will do away with teh immobiliser all together ?

    right?


    thanks again

    ben
