If they can send you a chip with a b20 basemap then by all means keep the p28. otherwise use an obd2a ecu from a 96-99 integra with the b18b.

probably the chip because you'll have the tuning capability if you so choose, and you'll be unable to change anything if you get the obd2a teg ecu.

okay thanks guys. i know this will be off my topic but did somone ever try installing a b20 throttle body into an integ intake mani because i know those crv mani are huge and theyll stick out so imma try puttin on an integ but then i dont know if the throttle body will fit cuz the fact is my integ mani doesnt have a throttle body and ive heard of things like the throttl cable will short or something
