    Default LF: USDM OBD2 ECU for b18c GSR

    As per thread title, looking for USDM b18c ecu that is OBD2.

    MUST BE USDM or it won't work on the new driveclean system.

    Ontario drive clean has decided to screw us all royally. I am looking to see if anyone has one so I can swap out my ECU for the E test, because they are taking FOREVER to get back to me about my hot rod status application, which they say is a "unique situation" because of the type of engine in my car. Oh my god it is a 1.8L honda engine! SO UNIQUE!

    anyway. if anyone has one...

    thanks.

    Apparently it only takes a day or two to get the hot rod application back. I have a friend with a b18c in a 98 chassis and he had no issues at all to get his hotrod status.

    well yes. they say 5 business days. I submitted mine on the 24th of april and i called them today for the 2nd time and they said it is still with the main office under review because of my "unique situation" which i'm not sure what they mean.

    Well APPARENTLY i'd have trouble doing this as i look further in, because the JDM engines don't use crank position sensors.. so they won't work with USDM ECU? bleh.
