okay where to start!...i got my self a 91 crx Just a d16a6 sitting in rigth now! So i was going to put in my d16z6 motor and just leave it at that! But now i wanna go turbo cuz i found a great deal on a kit. so the guy that has the kit is going to send me a Tuned ecu with it. but it's tuned for a Non vtec ZC sohc motor! so what i wanted to know with my z6 can i run a non vtec ecu and just get a vtec controller?????

im gonna break it down real simple.

do not run the turbo kit on the nonvtec zc map.

use the correct ecu for the motor you have, which would be the p28 or a chipped ecu running the correct map. . there is plenty of info on all of this on this site and you would be wise to use it .

i would just boost that a6 you have, and build the z6 that you have for bigger and better things. nothing wrong with the a6 its a great motor..

depending on alot of other factors but the no tec zc is almost identicle to the a6. so i am pretty sure it would be a safe basemap assuming u are using his complete turbo kit. this means it should be safe to get u to a tuner to get him to fine tune it for u. and i totally agree with cory that u should save the z6 and build it for boost.

The 91 rex is obd-1? Was it converted over already?

Good question. The CRX should be ODB0, although the ECU for the Non vtec ZC sohc motor might well be OBD1. If that is the case, you will need to convert to OBD1 to use that ECU. mrfunktastic is right on the money as far as the rest goes.

yeah turbo on non vtec map is bad.
WTF are you talking about? The problem has nothing to do with it being turboed. The ECU is supposed to be tuned for the turbo kit already. It's because the Z6 is a VTEC motor and the best way to deal with that it to use the correct factory ECU (properly chipped and tuned of course!)
