    Yes you need to change the ECU in order for the car to run properly and for VTEC to function.

    You can't add pictures until you are out of the greenhorn stage. The only way is to go host them at an image site - photobucket, imageshack, etc and then link here.

    The D16 ain't got no VTEC. But, yes the ECU will need to be changed for it to run correctly and not limp along.

    Well, some do, like the d16z6 and y8... but since it wasn't specified WHAT d16, we might as well just guess

    ^ Well that is true, the Y's & Z's do have VTEC - must have been thinking about dual cams...
