    to be clear, the p06, when modded/chipped, can effectively be converted into a p28 which as you know runs just about everything given a proper map installed on it.
    Assuming the guy before you actually got a proper map on it, it can be safe.
    judging how it was raped, i'm guessing the tune was NOT safe, and i'd have issues running that without getting it re-tuned on a new build.

    B18C5 Type R basemap is (relatively) a safe chipped tune for a OEM cam/internals LS-VTEC. The P06 could be modified and chipped already....which means a new basemap is all you need. But if it was spun before you bought it, who knows what ECU was in it and if the P06 has been modified. Take the cover off the ECU and take a pic of all the guts....we will be able to tell if it's chipped.
