There are five things I can think of which could possibly be at issue, but as written, your question is very broad and could have many different answers. You don't even give any thought to telling us whether or not the engine will even kick over or if it just cranks over with no other signs of life. That said ... Number one: Your cam timing is off. This ...

Any VTEC ECU should work as long as the VTEC solenoid is connected and wired to the ECU. I have a 94 integra with a B18C1 (DOHC VTEC). When I bought the car it had an ECU for a SOHC VTEC engine. VTEC would still engage. You might be able to test it with a test light on the pigtail for the VTEC Solenoid.

VTEC - Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control VTEC requires the ability to understand the state of the environment and motor in order to change the valve timing. Various sensors from oxygen, engine rpm, barometric pressure, engine temperature, air temperature, oil pressure, throttle position effect the the various timing events of a VTEC engine. ...

Yes you will need a compatible ECU for your new engine. The ECU reads multiple signals from your engine and will change your camshafts timing accordingly. When your engine gets high rpm, your valve timings should be adapted to get the VTEC boost.

Most control arm bushings require some type of mechanical or hydraulic press to install then in to the control arm. If you don't have access to a press you will have to pay someone to do it. This requires you to remove the arm and bring it somewhere. The cost in labor is likely going raise the cost to higher than the price of the arm with the bushing ...

I dont know where you looked for the fuse, but I found that it's not under the hood of the 2008 accord. It's beneath the steering column by the driver's left foot. Fuse no. 30. There's another one on the passenger side (one to each individual lightbulb) , but I only had to change the passenger side and both headlights started working..

I recently had the same trouble of intermittent shut-off while driving. I drive a 96 Honda Accord LX. 2.2L. It turned out to be the ignition control module (ICM) located inside the distributor. (50) bucks at Autozone.

The two things are entirely unrelated: 1 - this is normal. When you press the accelerator, there are a number of things that have to happen - more fuel to the cylinders, spark timing change, valve timing changes etc. and this takes some time to have an effect. If you had a turbocharged car you would notice a much greater lag, as there is a huge dependency ...

I have an Innova Equus 3160. It reads both air bag (SRS) and anti-lock brake (ABS) system codes, plus provides live data of the vehicle. There are other brands out there as well, though I don't know how well those work. The Equus one I have works great. There are also the bluetooth options. I'm not sure how well they work, either. While these are options ...

I may be wrong, but as far as I am aware, the bluetooth ELM327 interface only supports the OBD2 standard, so CANBUS operations aren't possible.

I have replaced the original Honda Shine suspension with a Gabriel. There are no significant differences in comfort. Gabriel price is 1100, Honda price 1800.

@Paulster2 was on the right track. It was an electrical issue. The back-plane of the engine-mounted fuse box was melted. This is also why testing the electronics didn't do any good because the physical assembly the electronics plugged into was damaged.

This happened to me as well with my ek...ON BOTH SIDES... I spent 6 hours grinding, drilling and cutting before I got the bolt and the round tap nut off the first time, the second only took 2 hours since I knew what I was doing from Before,then I just replaced them with a new nut and bolt, just make sure they're the right size or they'll back themselves out ...

The 'worst case scenario' that I can think of is this. Your spark plugs become fouled because the motor ran too rich and the bike doesn't start. You would need to remove the spark plugs and clean them with a carb or brake cleaner and re-install them. Don't worry about your vehicle. It's fine.

It will not damage the engine at all. All that will happen is that it will run richer, thus using more fuel. If you did it for thousands of miles you'd probably end up with more deposits in the engine/exhaust, but even that is easy to sort.
