Before you get it chipped...what other mods do you have? What program do you plan putting in it?

Running one of those premade chips won't do you much good at all...you need to get your car tuned...running a tune for another car will just give you shitty gas mileage.

And...to answer your question...leave it stock...5500

P30 : 92-95 OBD-1 DelSol DOHC Vtec Si/EG SiR

This computer is already programed to run VTEC. Why do you want to chip it? :confused VTEC engagement with the P30 should be somewhere between 5500 and 5800 rpm. I would suggest leaving it as it is. Stock VTEC engagement is 5800 on a OBD-2 2000 B16a2 with a P2T ECU. Too early and you would be running VTEC all the time during regular driving which can prove to be to much stress on your motor. And any later you might as well forget about reaching VTEC when you want it. Stock is perfect!

oh, the chip i was lookin at was a spoon chip, would have single stage vtec engage at 5000rpm,, had the adv timing, and upgrade air/fuel ratio. already. rev limiter is like 9600, but the b16 relines at what 8200?

I was getting at the fact that you don't want ANY of those chips in your car.

Every car is different and you need YOUR car to be tuned. You can't just use someone else's tune.

So basically...forget about ECU modifications til you have decent mods like cams or something.
