so i am new at this, as its probably obvious but I ordered all my stuff through Hybrid and I was supposed to get a PRB kpro'ed ECU from Hondata and thought that is what I got but I looked at it today and its a PPA ECU from the CRV 5 spd? Is this going to be an issue? I am already a little heated because the car will not idle after a couple minutes and I am wondering if that is because I am programming the ECU as a type S ECU and do not know what the differences are. I do know that the PRB is for the 6 spd manual and I have the 6 spd LSD... Anyone have any input on this? thanks

Well Hondata says it wont have the reverse lockout like the PRB does, so why the heck do I have a PPA ECU, I went through and ordered everything for my 6 spd LSD swap...... one more to mark up for the swap...

That is probably the only difference with the ECU. The Reverse Lockout feature, which honestly, isnt a big deal at all... the problem your having with your not idling after a couple minutes has NOTHING to do with the fact that it is a PPA ECU.. Once Hondata K-pro is installed on it, it is fully programmable and you can put any map on there from the files that come with the Software that is installed on your laptop....

I have tried several different settings and none of them seem to fix the idle problem, I have also pulled and cleaned the IACV and it has not helped either. I have 52 psi fuel pressure and everything seems to be hooked up fine, I have checked and rechecked. I am going to go through the wiring again to make sure I did not miss anything, I am not throwing any codes and for the most part it should be just fine, just worried it might have something to do with the Z3/A2 deal. But I will update if anything changes, hope my troubleshooting may help someone else later on. Do you need to reteach this ECU the Idle like older versions.... had that problem with a D-series once.

No. You will not need to reteach the ECU...
What kind of setup do you have anyway?

guess I wrote it the way I thought it instead of typing it out like a computer geek. I swapped a D series and after I re-installed the ECU, I had to progress through a process of starting the automobile and using the gas pedal to maintain a certain RPM for a certain length of time as for the ECU to utilize the automobiles sensors to calibrate the idle, there fore 'training' the ECU. Its the simple concept of the sensors communicating with the ECU and making the proper adjustments for the idle. I was just wondering if this were the same with the K series as this is my first K series swap. Its good to see someone finding humor in a simple question though.
