what's next

Hi i just got a 98 prelude sh. It has 232,000 miles but was rebuilt at 205,000 rebuilt stock trans. Over bored cylinders the guy i got it from does not know what size but guestimated itz around a 2.4l now. Tien adjustable suspension megan headers aem cold air intake and exhaust. Im wondering what to do next. Ive been thinkin about a vtec controller or some kind of tune. Any recomendations? Also a larger throttle body is 75 mm from edelbrock too big? New to the world of honda so any advice would be helpful

Re: what's next

So you've decided on engine?
Since you already have the basics I/H/E, I wouldn't even bother with a Vtec controller, they're pretty much useless. Just do it once, do it right, and get a chipped ECU and get it dyno-tuned.

Re: what's next

Thanks for the advice! If i flash the ecu using hondata i need obd1 but from my understanding if i go back to obd1 my car will be unsmoggable. Is there a way to use hondata without going obd1?

Like i said in your other post, find a tuner near your, and talk to them about options that they can do for you that will still meet your smog requirements.
