i want to buy a 5th generation civic hatchbackbut i want to do a motor swap. i want to do an ls swap because it is cheaper.do i have to change the ecu if i do that swap or is the old ecu good to use. any help much thanks.
well, with LS u can run the Si ecu, i am b/c i havent had time to swap it out yet. its still a powerful engine with the wrong ecu, but it will b alot stronger with the better ecu. use B16a1 tranny it has best gearing.
sorry, i don't know why i suggested a p28 in the first place...i tend to skim through shit and just answer when it looks like the same question as the rest of them, ok now listen, if your gonna run a ls in a 5th gen get a 94-95 ls ecu (not sure of the exact code, just check in the references section on this site)

Damn man pass that shit over here,I need a hit.Why would he use a vtec ecu from a b16a3 on a nonvtec ls motor?And what are you talking about find one,They came in cars for several years in many countries.
