Which ecu for...

96 civic 1.6 dx

planning on doing a z6 or y8 head swap... or a d15vtec head, dont really care which. anyways.... my stock ecu OBVIOUSLY isn't goign to do it for me, so what ecu do yall reccomend?

for now : n/a set up (boost somewhere down the road but not worried about it yet)
mild mods... intake mani, b16 injectors + t/b, headers, intake, exhaust. Thinking about getting a mild cam for it but not sure about that yet.

any help would be just peachy keen

y8 head/IM
96-98 EX ecu
stock injectors (b-series are no bigger than D-series)

96+ CX/DX/HX/LX injectors are 180cc... You will need to get EX or B series injectors...

once you've decided which ecu & head you wanna go with, you're gonna have to perform some engine harness modifications to be compatible with a SOHC VTEC head, mainly, add VTEC wiring, knock sensor, & perform the IACV fix.
