    p06 DOESN'T have VTEC and the p28 is a VTEC E.C.U. Unless you don't want VTEC, I would suggest going with the p28. I just ordered a chipping kit for my p06 E.C.U. to run a p28 basemap and it was very easy to install. VTEC on SOHC Honda engines don't make your car go a lot faster but allow you to use your top end speed. Plus, if you have the z6 head on there why not have VTEC!.

    I just checked my VTEC solenoid on my D16y8 head and the GREEN wire is to the VTEC solenoid and the RED wire I presume goes to the Oil Pressure Sensor. The reason I presume this is because I'm doing a D16a6/D16y8 "mini-me" combo and I do not have the Oil Pressure Sensor clip. Hope this helped a little!.

    It's really the same shit if you ask me. The OBD-anything just controls the cylinder head also it's what ignition, spark, fuel, and intake control.

    I've heard that on the D16z6 there is one ground wire that you must run to a solid ground in order for VTEC to work. Maybe that is your solid green wire. I will research it on google.ca and get back to you.

    I found this on eBay.ca, this is a D16z6 VTEC solenoid. I see that the VTEC Solenoid wire is yel/grn. Then the oil pressure sensor has a blue wire that gets sent to the ECU and a black wire that goes to a ground. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I figured that this picture might help out somehow.

    You possibly have the D16y8 VTEC solenoid. Does it look like this? vvv

    This is a D16y8 VTEC Solenoid
    This might help a lot, I sure hope it does!.

    Actually they can be mistaken from what I've heard!. Do you have a picture of the backside where the gasket is. My y8 solenoid has 3 stacked oval openings, but the z6 has a very different design. This is the backside of the z6 vtec solenoid. Yours should look similar, if not you have a y8 solenoid.

    none of the wires on the solenoid are hooked up..there are 3!!!!
    one green all by itself and then 2 green/white and red/white on another part of the sol.
    none are hooked up..i need to know which wire goes to which pin on a p28 ecu..

    Ok, so I found a proper schematic for your engine...

    A04 = VTEC solenoid
    D06 = VTEC Pressure Switch

    You will only be left with 1 wire that is ground. The ground is the Green wire on your Oil Pressure Switch.
