Question about Hondata s300

Hey guys, I have a stock ecu. and i believe my 5th gen prelude is obd2 right? well in the hondata site it says

OBDI Systems
s100
s200
s300

So does that mean I need to switch it to OBD1 to use the hondata s300?

Re: Question about Hondata s300

So i guess i found my answer,

# To use a Hondata system it is required that an OBDI ECU is used. Note an OBD1 distributor must be used.
# OBDII to OBDI adapter harness required.
# OBDI ECU swap.
# Differential control will be lost.
# Conversion from OBD1 required (OBD0-OBD1 adapter harness, OBD1 distributor).

Does anyone know where i can get a OBD1 ecu and distributor? Also the OBDII to OBDI adapter harness. Do i need anything else to use hondata?

Re: Question about Hondata s300

1st thing you should do is locate a tuner. When you buy the ecu you tell the company that programs it what your engine is and they put a basemap on the ecu so that your car will operate. The point of getting the chip is to tune it to your specific engine, so find a tuner.

The thing is not every tuner will use hondata. Some tuners might be able to tune a car in 1/2 the time with ectune or chrome and prefer it to hondata. So talking with the tuner you want before you buy the chip is crucial.

When you are ready to buy a chip it is well known that Phearable.net - Electronic Fuel Injection Tuning Solutions - Hondata, Neptune, Crome, Uberdata, Ectune, AEM, Honda Tuning, Widebands, Fuel Pumps, Intercoolers, Turbos, LS/VTEC, ECU Chipping, Chipped Ecus, P28 is the way to go. They also sell harnesses and you could always call them if you have questions, but ideally your tuner would tell you what to buy or supply it for you.

Re: Question about Hondata s300

thanks for that website, its really useful, I will diffidently give them a call.

I have another question, I am also getting the brian stroker kit,
BrianCrower.com | RunBC.com // Honda // H22 / H22A

Right now i need a new ecu but i wasnt sure if i should do a obd1 swap or not. I did a whole engine swap from a h22a4 automatic to a h22a type s manual. I use my stock harness and stock distributor from the old engine. I didnt use the jdm ecu, im currently using my oem automatic ecu. So right now my car turns on with out stepping on the clutch, assuming it still think its an automatic. so should i still get the hondata and tune it now, and then when i get the brian stroker kit, re-tune it?

Re: Question about Hondata s300

If you don't have to worry about emissions I would deff switch over to obd1.. It's the only way to truly tune your car..

Hondata is very good. I have it on my car and it's pretty easy to tune..

But u should really see what your tuner is comfortable tunning with.. I would go with whatever ur tuner likes though
