What's your build like?

Best possible route is a good N/A or Turbo build, an OBD-I ECU swap, and Hondata S300 with good dyno-tuning.

Piggybacks aren't really a good solution for our cars. If you plan on keeping your car the way it is (according to your signature) than a piggyback wouldn't be too bad, but if you are planning on changing engine internals and/or boosting, you're gonna want to get an OBD-I and get it tuned. Save that for last though because it'll be expensive, and you'll need it tuned after each major modification.

It's also best to dynotune your vtec controller so when the curves cross, you can set VTEC to engage then. NEO and VAFC2 are good though.

u dont really even need a dyno for the vafc. A good tuner can feel where vtec needs to be. Just put it at the RPM where you feel the crossover the least. Then using a wideband, correct the fuel at WOT.
