Sorry, this is a repost of my thread from the tech section but I'm trying to get all help I can:
Looking at a potential EH3 civic which has a JDM ITR B18C swapped in. Engine, ecu, tranny, etc. is stock ITR according to the seller and he claims to be using the stock JDM P73 ecu.
However, the vtec engagement point on this car is 5K rpms, not the 5.8K or so rpms that I was expecting on a stock ITR setup. Anyone agree with me that this is weird or know cause of this? Anything to do with the car being OBD1 and the engine, ecu, etc being OBD2?
I'd be grateful for any help anyone has...I'm trying to be as thorough as I can in addressing any potential issues before buying the car so advice is really appreciated.
