    I'm not positive, but my guess would be that the B17 ecu is looking for a knock sensor, and you don't have one wired up. 92-95 Civics didn't have a knock sensor, and a P28 doesn't look for one. This would explain your v-techk 'ripping teh road' with the P28.

    Is the B17 ecu throwing any check engine lights? This would be your first indicator of what's wrong...
