    i swapped a 91 ls motor into my 89 crx hf. The ecu that came with it looks like this

    It dosent look right to me, the engine will fire but wont stay running an pops really loud thru the exhaust.
    The other ecus ive seen have a big V indented on the front cover. Notice the diamond around the window.
    Is this the right ecu for this swap? I have no part numbers on it to confirm or deny this being the correct one
    any help would be great

    Pull the cover. On most ECU's the model number is on the plastic plugs on the inside of the ECU.

    a PM5 is from a Civic STD or a CRX DX.... it's a dual-point ECU and will NOT work for a multipoint application.

    The reason the engine pops really bad and won't stay running is because your ECU is only powering 2 of your injectors....


    You definitely got hosed on your ECU.
