    I just swapped a B16 into my del sol....although it was a bitch for the shift linkage...but anyways...the car sounds smooth....but the car when I take for test driving the car hesitates to just get it going...My swap is a JDM B16 w/ a PR3 JDM ECU...Everything is connected...k/s, v/s, so it doesn't throw a code....also I checked every cylinder for spark but the spark is very strong...Also when the engine is cold all the cylinders make a difference when i take off the spark plug wires...but when it heats up, cylinder number 3, when I take off the spark wire off, the engine doesn't make a difference. What could that Be..???My problem sounds similar of the guy who was paying 50 bucks for an answer....Could anybody help plz... [​IMG]

    I am a little confused. Is your del sol OBD 0? I thought the PR3 was OBD 0. My B16A uses a P30.

    My ECU is JDM PR3....I think i kinda sucks...cuz VTEC doesn't kick in until 6k rpm...but its a PR3...cuz P30 are USDM ECU...But what kind of size of exhaust would be good for my B16A???

    Our JDM B16A is using a P30 ECU just like Fritz. I just changed the cat and exhaust system in March and went with a Magnaflow high flow cat and and Apexi WS II exhaust system. I believe Apexi piping is 60mm (2.25"?).
