    Don't get a mugen chip. Get a P28 from a 92-95 Civic Ex/Si. It's a sohc obd1 ecu. Chip it with either a hondata or uberdata. Do you plan on boosting the a2?

    get a p28, an obd1 conversion harness from one of our sponsors :p , have the ecu socketed or do it yourself, and then pm me if you want a custom basemap for your b16 :)

    The P28 will cost you around 100-150. They're forsale everywhere on here and honda-tech. Some come chipped already.

    For the harness, search around the site for a link to the sponsor B was talking about.

    If you get a virgin, look up hondata's website and look around for an S200 setup. Or wait for someone who knows where to get an uberdata setup comes in here and chimes in (because I forget where to get it, uberdata.com???).

    Or, if you are a DIYer, get a non-vtec OBD1 virgin ECU, chip it and convert it for VTEC. Should cost you $40 for the ECU and another $40 or so in parts for the chipping and VTEC conversion.
