Phearable ECU

Just wondering how many of you here have a phearable.net ecu because im looking to get one and im sick of dealing with this o2 sensor and safe mode crap and my car laggin and dogging everywhere. I think this ecu will help that. Also will it make my car run worse over time, like start burning oil ect?

Re: Phearable ECU

Well if you get a phearable.net ECU it will only come with a basemap, you should get your car tuned if you want it to actually run correctly :P But I had bought a used ECU from a friend that originally came from phearable.net and had a civic basemap on it so I had to get tuned anyways and never tried to run just an h23 basemap, but I would assume you would still need tuned.

Re: Phearable ECU

Re: Phearable ECU

I plan to get my obd1 ecu from them as well, anyone know if there is a difference between the real p28 and the converted p28?

No real difference, probably was a P06 . Just have to solder in a few doo hickies and its a P28.

This be one of the the doo hickies: Xenocron Tuning: SI5151 Vtec High Side Switch

Re: Phearable ECU

if you are stock and all, you should be ok on the basemap (i have not gotten my phearable.net ecu tuned yet) and all is good and runs great. i told them exactly what i have. when i boost or change something, then yes you NEED to get a tune. but you should be fine on stock.

Ah, guess I'm gonna save $25 and get the converted one now lol. One more thing, if you reset the ecu (disconnecting the negative battery cable) will you lose the basemap? or will it always be on there?

i wouldnt think so because its programmed into your ecu.. just like a normal ecu

Re: Phearable ECU

No, you will not lose tune. It is saved on to the e-prom.

If you engine is stock internally shouldn't have any issues running the map they send you. You will gain some power if get dyno tune, but like said unless change internals and or have boost should be fine running map send you.

You will have to get a re-tune to get the true gains of the header/exhaust. Basically any time you get a new part you will need a re-tune to get the full effect of the part.

alright cool.. but it wouldnt hurt for me to be running it on a basemap with exhaust for a little while? Just until i can get header/intake then tune?

I wouldn't think so because you list the mods you already have when you order the ecu.

Re: Phearable ECU

Just think of it this way, if you would run the mod on factory ecu then it won't hurt your car. You will not get full effect of mods unless have new tune.

It isn't cost effective to keep going to dyno each time get new bolt-on. Unless you are adding new cams, forced induction, or nitrous you should have no issues if don't update tune right away. Like stated before won't see full effect of bolt-ons until update tune, also will show better gains with previous modifications with combination of mods over just mod by its onesies.

thats a good way of putting it, if your stock ecu isnt effected then this wont be either.. thanks man thats a good way of looking at it.

ONE last question. Right now i have a bad o2 sensor and in my other thread they said that the bad o2 is putting my computer in safe mode making it run a constant air/fuel which i think is whats making it so slow and boggy once that check engine light comes on. With this new ecu will i still need to get a new o2 sensor because i heard it gets rid of all the stupid cel codes and what not.

Re: Phearable ECU

Well I mean if the o2 sensor went bad and is causing problems I would replace it. I'm not sure if the chipped ecu would be able to bypass that.
