i just did a b18c type r swap on my integra. when i was driving home it appeared ot have a govenor at 130 mph!!! how do i get rid of this. someone told me that adding a field sfc vtec controller would do it. is that true? please help.
I reposted links to the orignal threads on PGMFI... Dunno if you looked at those.
A guy created a device that gets spliced in between the VSS and the ECU. Up to a certain point, it just copies the VSS signal in to the VSS signal out. Past a certain point (I think it was 170 kph ~102mph) it simply keeps sending the same speed (170kph) instead of your actual speed. This is a much better approach than sending a bogus signal all the time because any ECU functions that are dependent on speed will be upset. Bottom line: ECU functions like it is supposed to, but never sees a speed above 170kph and never hits the fuel cut. Total parts to build: <$10
oh and he isn't full of shit. read here:
The Field VTEC controller is a perfect suppliment for VTEC Acura/Hondas. The Field VTEC controller features an 8 step fuel controller (+/- 30% in 1% increments), a VTEC controller adjustment(2000-9900rpm in 100rpm increments), a tachometer display with shift indicator and a speedometer with speed limiter remover. This unit is dyno proven with impressive results. 1.8DOHC 5-9hp, 2.2DOHC 9-17hp, 1.6SOHC 3-5hp. Perfect for the serious enthusiast! Note: For 4 cylinder VTEC engines only.
Field now offers a wiring harness to make installation of the popular Field SFC VTEC Controller a breeze. This unit is available for OBD1 and OBD2 vehicles. These vehicles must also be VTEC equipped, because the harness wiring is specifically desinged for the VTEC Acuras and Hondas.
