dude for sure the b16b ecu man i think you might have some problems with that jdm ecu (still learning about ecus) but you can use a chipped p30 or a chipped p28 i am not to sure about the b16b ecus good luck with that post some pics when you get it done!

you wont have any problems with the stock B16B ecu. The D series harness is prewired for vtec (atleast the 5g civics are) just add knock sensor wire, switch a couple in the harness and your golden. You migh not have to switch any but I am just speakin from my experience when I did my SIR G swap.
