  • Chipped ECU or standard ECU for California?

    Hey folks, hoping I can get some advice. My ECU on 92 Integra RS w/manual (OBD1) is having issues, and so I have to pick up a new one. I have no performance mods on my engine at this time, but I might look to upgrading the header and intake in the near future. My dilemma is on which route I should go. Should I pick up a chipped ECU with basemap (and get it tuned at some point) or just pick up a remanufactured standard ECU? My car is in California, so I need to deal with smog test every 2 years, and my next one is coming up in 5 months. Thanks in advance.
