Default Chips

Anyone know of good places for chips that adjust when vtec kick in? i have a 1994 accord ex coupe.

Are the Spoon brand ones any good on ebay?

Don't trust those ebay chips that go for like $10, you will be disapointed. Look for a reputable place, if you do a search on here I'm sure you will find some good places. Most places that do the flashing customize a chip to your car and its mods and what you are looking to get. I do think that a chip is the last mod you want to do and sometimes just a waste. Now, with the mods you've got and maybe a cam your car could be pretty quick.

Almost completely worthless and expensive to do on an Accord unless you're running a turbo. Now if you had a Civic or Integra that would be a different story...

You have OBDI. HONDATA is the best. But it is pricey.

Actually Hondata is not the best, just the most well known. There arebetter, cheaper options out there.

a chip on a midrange vtec motor is worthless, and def dont do the ebay ones.

however if you want someone to tune your ecu try phearable.net

you can tell them when you want vtec, launch control, CEL shift light etc etc, i just ordered a ECU for my H22 through them.........but thats just to hold me over till i get hondata and a dyno tune

I did not know this. I thought it was either Hondata or a custom tune. Unless you want to waste your money on JET trying to estimate how toreflash by giving them a mod list.I won't ever mess with my ecu anyway since it's OBDII.

live2rice, why dont you spend $100 and buy yourself a Moates Burn1 chip burner and a few EEPROMS and then get the dyno tune? Much cheaper option and practically the same... you could still use your chipped ECU...
