Either buy a chipped ecu or send yours to a company to get it chipped

Phearable.net or you can get your hands on a p28, p06 or any other obd1 chippable Ecu and I can install a chip kit.

I was about to say the same thing. I have never once had a single issue with them, I've bought a chipped ecu, and two s300 installed ecu from them. All three worked amazingly, plus I've also bought a car with a phearable chipped ecu in it which worked great and several of my friends have gone through Phearable. Never once had an issue with them. Plus don't they offer a warranty on their work?

I know mine was done really nice. I opened it up an checked out the soldering an it look really clean. No giant soldering spots. Thin an even but strong. An the programming worked great. They threw a base map on it an it was way off for my car. But that's to be expected. It started it ran really nice but it was really lean. 2 step worked great I put my 2 step high just so i could make the sound I don't like launching from it. Kinda bogs if you launch using the e break technique. I have got to try the slow release clutch way only in my civic an I like it alot. But Idk how my crx will like it. Lol anyways. Phearable is the way togo. Nick can also do it. I've seen it an it works. I think I'm gonna have him do mine.

Not bashing on them as it seems thats where I went as well my ecu was clean and worked fine and customer service was great .. Just a couple people I know their map was incorrect one had to send back to get a different map.

Yeah their basemaps aren't the greatest. Especially when it comes to different fuels. They can't make an e85 basemap to save their lives. Basemaps don't really matter tho, the whole point of them is so you can at least start the car and drive to a local dyno.
