    92-95 civic ex/si, 93-95 del sol si have the p28

    the auto DOES matter, but it too can also be chipped to work with a manual if necessary, but p28's are so cheap and abundant, that finding a manual for around $125 is easy.

    no matter what "off the shelf" chip you plan to get, i higgly suggest you get a vafc and head to a dyno to tune it. E picked up almost 20 hp in the midrange and 10 mpg on his itr with a skunk2 p28. they just run way too rich.

    sounds like it. skunk2/mugen/your name here are pretty much all the same shit.

    vafc is like 300 bucks or so... and allows you to + or - your % of fuel at given rpm points... a quick tune so to speak. and, it allows you to set your optimal vtec point.

    pardon the life size image..... but here's the results i was talking about above....

    11.9:1 a/f ratio of the before graph is STUPID rich =)
