Sorry, but you have no idea what you're talking about.

2000 Civic LS/VTEC Import? Good try buddy.
 
No its not a con or a joke! I have a 1.5i LS VTEC 2000 Hatchback that was imported from Japan and i have tried to find a new chip for it and cant find one anywhere. Engine number is D15Z6, Type EK3.

Can you put pics on here, because i'll take a pic of the plaque in the engine bay.

I realize your a noob, but you could at least have some common sense.


Here's some important info.

A LS engine is a B18 not a D15
 

B16

yes, you should read and find out what LS VTEC is, then get back to us with what your problem is, you have conflicting information
 
Sorry I should have said that I'm from Europe, my fault. The car was imported to Luxembourg europe. But why the hell have I got a pain in the ass engine? I've got the usual mods but I 'm after a new chip. But all I keep getting told is that my car does not exists, well sorry it does, its outside now!

So what you have is just a JDM 1.5 SOHC VTEC. Nothing unusual. No LSVTEC engine there.

It's Honda's smallest VTEC engine. (Similar to the US spec VX engine)

You can get a OBD2-1 adapter, and use a P08 ecu stock, or have it chipped.

Hondata is not going to be able to help you on this one.

I know, I know.... Why not?

The JDM 1.5l VTEC engine is missing a few parts that Hondata looks for.

1- The ECU does not have a barometric sensor
2- The ECU does not look for a VTEC oil pressure switch
3- The ECU does not look for a Knock sensor.

Although #3 doesn't matter, 1 & 2 do.

HTH's.
 
I have heard of the D15Z6, but do not know anything about it. For switching to OBD1 and a USDM ecu, you could switch to a usdm vtec solenoid with a vtec pressure switch. I had to do this to use my usdm p72 on my JDM b18c.
