Nobody makes em... try these guys but I think it only works on manual trans. cars: http://www.hondata.com You'll have to convert to OBD1 ECU.

Not only will you have to go OBD1 to run Hondata, you'll also have to convert to manual. Neither one is worth it unless you plan on a semi-serious power setup.

I have also looked into this. You need to be willing to spend some $. Here are 2 made by Venomthat are offered on Summitracing's website. I'm not sure what the difference is between the 154 and the 200, but here you go: http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...59&NeXID=5
I asked around on the forum a while back, and I don't think anybody has one so I don't know how well they work. SummitRacing is a pretty respected distributor though, so I doubt they would sell something that doesn't work.
Also I know JET performance sells a package where you remove the ECU from your car and send it to them and they re-program it. Here's a link from the Jegs website: http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...45895_-1_10373

Good luck. If you decide to go with one of these, please let us know how well they work!

The Venom 400 is a piece of ****. It doesn't do anything. Trust me, summit racing does sell some cheap ****, I live 15min from it.

I'm interested in the JET ECU removal and revitalization...but I don't want my Accord to be the guinea pig.

Do you know the Venom doesn't work from experience? Have you ever had one or known somebody that had one? I'm not trying to be an ***, I just want to know why you say it doesn't do anything. If they don't do anything, then how can they sell enough of them to stay in business?
Here is a link with 40 reviews: http://www.autoanything.com/performa...customerReview
Looks like only about 2 or 3 bad reviews out of 40. Of course I can't tell if any of the applications are on Hondas, so I don't know if it is worth a crap for Honda's or not. One guy put one on an RSX and gave it 5 out of 5 stars on the review.
Here are some more reviews. These ones are more mixed: http://www.carreview.com/cat/parts/e...0_2874crx.aspx

Like all chips...it just fools the computer of going WOT all the time...thus leading to a shorter ramp up to the VTEC.

I think I just lost interest in JET.

this is probally off topic, but is it possible to make a semiautomatic accord?

Yeah I was kind of worried about that myself. I don't think I need a computer "fooling" my car into thinking it is WOT all the time. That is why I have been leery of trying any kind of "ECU upgrade." I figure the Honda guys probably knew what they were doing to get optimal resultswhen they programmed the stock ECU.
