ok guys im new to this forum hehe!! thats my first post but i got a question about my car heres the question:

Can i put a p28 Chipped on my d16y8 (acura 1.6el) whit the obd2 to obd1 conversion?? the only thing i got on my engine is :

Cold Air Intake
4-2-1 Headers
2 1/2 inch pipping exhaust

and also is there any benefit of doing this?? or you need a bigger setup to run this p28 cgipped ecu??

i feel i need a little more punch whit my y8 hehe!!

You'll be just fine running it, but this "chip" is a concern: Is it just a generic performance chip? If so you'll probably just run rich or something. You could squeeze a little added power or fuel economy if you got the P28 in and then dyno-tuned it to the motor and its slight modifications. This costs a few hundred dollars.
However, you will not see much benefit until you have something internally done, such as a more aggressive cam shaft or higher compression pistons.

Unless your doing the VTEC conversion yourself on the P06, it's most likely going to be cheaper to stay with the P28 you have. Just chip it and use a Y8 base map.
