Re: F22 VTECH SWAP

without a doubt VTEC (NOT vtech!!!!!!) wont work.

the engine may or may not run on the stock ECU, i aint too sure about that.

Re: F22 VTECH SWAP

Do a search.

I made a complete thread on the f22B vtec motor.
FYI* this motor is OBD II and comes with the best, relaxed gear ratios in the t2t4 LSD transmission.
The ECU is a regulated for Japan/Europe so yes, it will have a speed governor.
