    im not too keen on ECU type stuff but:


    i have 4-2-1 mani, CAI, bigger leads, decat, the usualy breathing mods on my ESI would it be worth while to get it chipped/remapped.


    what do i have to look for what would i need to do and what options do i have... will it just even out or is there some power gain to be had there?


    cheers guys and gals

    Iv had mine chipped and it cost me 80 quid and i think its worth it mate, it feels more torquey in the lower revs and feels genraly smoother, also set the limiter higher and brought the VTEC in earlier so its milder, and no, its not a shit ebay "spoon" or "mugen" one either lol

    not for the mods you have, just not worth at lest

    no. you need a hell of a lot of work on a nasp d series to make it worth thinking about a remap IMO

    It was a friend of a freind who done it for me, back garden job but he knows his way around hondas, took ages to do the soldering as the gun wouldn't stay hot long enough to melt the earth points but only took about 15 mins to program the chip

    thats what i have, a P28, i don't know feck all about remapping so i was pretty nervous when he started to attack my ECU lol, he has done a fair few around the north east area, he can program the engine management light as a shift light and what have you
