use the LS tranny, P28 is the civic EX ecu, easily modified and many programmed chips circulating out there for it.

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)

ok this is the ecu you want to find. and yes i mean find. get the p30 from the 94 ecu from a delsol dohc that is your best bet but you will have to search for it :blink: :spin:
