    So I have a lil problem goin on....I have p28 on a b18 swap I used to have the code vtec solenoid but then I unplugged my ecu and plugged it back in and I had no more codes....and recently it came back on but it turned off by itself...then it turned on and I check for any codes ( I kno how already) but wen I did check for codes I got nothing it didn't blink at all it stayed on so I turned off the car then removed the wire from the place where I put it in and the check engine light didn't turn on I'm not sure if its a good thing or should I worry

    b18 WHAT? a? B? c? c5?

    you likely need the right ecu, or a chip program on the p28 FOR your motor.

    lol get yourself a proper tune, because no ecu from honda will be able to give you proper fuel and whatnot, due to the fact your motor technically doesn't exist from a OEM standpoint (b16/b18b),
    So go pay the money, better than paying for a new motor. And it'll run better.

    a p28 provides fuel for a 127 hp d16z6.
    you are liekly making 180+ crank hp.

    which means, its running it lean as hell.

    get it chiped and get it custom tuned to the fuel you require.
