Default Using tuning software with different-than-Honda-sensor voltage outputs?

Quick question for any software gurus out there:

Are any platforms able to handle voltages other than what the Honda sensors put out? I've heard that Crome PRO can use different TPS voltages, but what about the others?

For what it's worth, let's figure out how to hack a Honda ECU into my Kia harness to manage the motor!!

It would be easier to raid your local junkyard and just use honda sensors.

Or maybe I could sleep with the Kia ECU under my pillow in hopes that it will be EEPROM in the morning instead of flash?

On a serious note, what are the chances that any of the sensors will bolt in?

The hardest part will be fitting the distributor to your motor...figure that out 1st.

I'm not a Honda guy, so I dunno. Are all ECU's that are able to be chipped only for motors with distributors? There's not a single chipped ECU on a DIS Honda?

Unless of course all Hondas have distributors? Seriously, I dunno?

You have to match the ECU to the distributor with Hondas...you can't lets say, put a Honda ECU in a Toyota and use the stock Toyota distributor...

+1, but i have thought about doing the same thing. i still might one day just for the fun of it

The ST165/WRC ST205 All-Trac hybrid I looked at only had CKP and CYP, no clue if they are in Honduh-correct alignment, no TDC sensor. Are there any you know of with TDC?
