Im thinking about buying a civic 2002 Si , but with the engine broken and ecu broken too, , I've been researching about the ecu and more to see if its worth it, my question is , I know that k20a3 has no distributor , and therefore there is no way to install a obd1 ECU , not 100% sure , but correct me if Im wrong ......

then , is it a good deal if the car is worth half price ? . is there any other solution for the ECU ?

what about key immobilizer ? , how that things works ? that can be disabled or reprogramed , and how ? .

thanks in advance for all the help.

buy the ep3 stock ecu for $175-250, get the keys and immobilizer synched to the ecu at honda for less than $100. You can find an a3 engine for cheap. That or buy a k24a1 and the crv passenger engine mount bracket($35 I think), run the ep3's stock ecu but use 310cc injectors and you would be fine. Just don't add i/h/e or you will start to run too lean on the stock ecu.
