    first: i tried searching and couldn't find it

    i want the skunk 2 p28 (or similar) ecu with earlier vtec engagement and better fuel and spark curves but i was wondering if this was a smart idea because i would have to convert to obd 1. is this a good idea. if so should i ebay the obd2 to obd1 conversion harness.

    obviously im really new to hondas so thanks for the help

    converting to obd1 is a smart idea (provided its legal in your state/regioin) for performance.

    the skunk2 chip, and all the other INSERT PROGRAM HERE chips however,ares worthless.
    90% of the time, earlier vtec will loose you horsepower.

    Ecu mods should compliment engine mods. So what have you done to your motor?

    Never, never, EVER put a chip in that isn't tuned for your vehicle. If you have a stock motor, you need to run a stock ECU program. 'Stock motor' includes I/H/E and other basic boltons. If you have mods done to your motor, such as cams, pistons, F/I, then you need a program that is tuned specifically for your car.

    I own a stock B16a5 automatic SiR. What possible mods should I be looking at to increase performance. I was thinking of a chip. I don't plan on doing anything internal yet.
