    Just wondering what the difference is? I heard the PR3 is supposed to be better but I cant find anything that explains the difference.

    first of all, pr3 ecu's can come in OBD0 or OBD1 formats. I have also been told that pr3 ecus have slightly more aggressive fuel maps, because it came out of the jdm integra, a slightly more "sporty" car than the crx; it's just my speculation that they tuned the b16a in the jdm integras a little better than the crx. If you are going to chip your ecu, it doesn't really matter.

    Edit: Also post this in the right forum next time. Mod's, please move to electronics section please.

    So is it worth it to chip the PW0 if my mods are header/cai/catback exhaust?

    A.Are you going to tune it and use that program for the chip?
    B.Or use some crappy chip (any of those bullshit ones on ebay and 98% of the other ones you can buy on the market)?

    If you chose A, that's a good choice you but gains will be minimal (I.E. 5-10 hp if your lucky)

    If you chose B, you're completely wasting your money.

    5-10 horses is not bad for just tuning with I/H/E. Its like investing in the future.

    ECU - $75
    Getting it socketed - $10
    Having some one tune it ~ depends.

    Havinng a motor that runs like it's supposed to - Priceless

    like everyone already said, if your intentions are to run one of these ebay chips or custom chips for your set up with no tuning, don't waste your time/money. the only chip you should be looking in to buying is a blank one, to have someone personally tune your car, not just slap in some ebay special. my advice would be to look around for people who tune turbo edit (or any other obd0 rom editors) in your area.

    There's an old school electronics shop down the street from my house. I'm sure it'll take him all but ten minutes to put the socket in.
