    ok so i hope i dont sound ignorant here, but crome and hondata only work with OBD1 right? I have an integra with OBD2a and i was wondering if i should convert or maybe theres a tuning program that will let me tune OBD2. and if i do convert will i need just the ECU and a wiring harness? I heard you have to do some craziness with the distributor... any info mucho appreciated.

    going to obd1 is the best choice.

    just keep your obd2 stuff around if you need to go to emissions, as the obd1 ecu will fail.

    cool thx! so what do i need to do a FULL conversion. some of the pages i looked over suggested that all i need is an obd1 ecu and a ecu harness, but im skeptical. if anybody has a link i'd be eternally grateful!

    obd1 just has more options for tuning.
    keep your distributor and just change out the plug.
