    Hondata for sure. dont have one but have heard many good things about their ECU's. Damn you should've waited to drop the motor its a lot easier to hook everything up when its out of the car.

    yup yup....its so much easier to put the harness on when the motor's out of the car...takes like 3 minutes


    took me about an hour and a half to put my harness on with the motor in the car. theres so much shit thats hard to fuckin get to in a goddamn honda engine bay...speshully when youre tired and frustrated as hell.
