    Default D17A manual ECU required

    AOA Guys,

    Hope you are all fine. Few days back i swapped D17A (VTEC) in my Honda City Sx-8 (2002). The engine is now running fine but i cannot get past 4000K REVS because i am running an Auto ECU with it. Is there any way so that i can get past this limit and rev it further. Moreover, is there any way to convert it into other version of OBD so that i can get it chipped or tuned. I know that the chipping is only possible with a K-PRO or any other piggy ECU but it is soo costly, the conversion harness is also not applicable as it uses Coil Packs and no Dizzy..If the manual ecus are available then at which cost secondly any ecu number compatible with it ?.. Any help ?

    Its not revving above 4k rpms cuz its in limp mode. Have you connected any OBD scanner for detecting the codes? If No, than get it scanned to check if there are other errors causing the limp mode. For example: Two years back my D17A went into limp mode and i found a faulty knock sensor, if all the other things seems fine after OBD scanning, you can save up your money to buy another ECU by bridging the Auto ECU's Auto Transmission Solenoid by giving it a bypass wire, it will sense the Auto Transmission is there.
    Give it a try otherwise buying a Manual ECU option is already available.
