    so i finally caved....obd0 sucks...

    now i'm running an obd2 ported and polished b16a2 head froma 99-00 si, a skunk2 pigtail, and a chipped p28 ecu.

    why's obd1 so much better than obd2? i mean, i know you can't chip obd2, but other than that, is obd1 that much better ?

    I would go OBD2 in an OBD2 car, unless you are looking to chip your ECU. My reason is that any monkey with an OBD2 reader can just plug right in to your ecu and read the codes. Honda does have this built in, but it is way quicker with a reader. Plus, you just tell the reader to erase the codes, and it does, no messing around. However, since I'm OBD 1, that's right where I'm gonna stay, happily.

    I have seen a ITR dyno of it gaining 8whp from jumpin onto the obd1 unit from the two, but I also think he was running hondata 2b with it.
