it depends, if your buying a socketed one you could go either way and just disable vtec with the chip. I would only do that if your planing to do a vtec head or something along them lines. If your just going to slap a stocker in, the vtec ecu will always have a CEL on a non vtec motor

yeah i was thinkin the same thing, i just found out you could disable it right now. thats coo, cuz it leaves the option of an easy swap later. but how would the CEL affect the driving?

PM5 is a none chippable OBD0 ECU

Do not buy an OBD0 ecu for your setup if you are OBD2 or OBD1 already...
