    i looked into it breifly and i was told you need the key and the cool digital dash out of the s2000 i don';t know if the ecu is unlockable or if you will now have to go aftermarket for the management.

    I've done this. It can be done but you need to keep the key and ignition barrel sensor. I'm currenlty thinking it would have been much better to just use an aftermarket ecu though.

    My top tip would also would be to keep the airpump relay (I didn't - tricking the ecu into thinking that it's working is driving me nuts)

    Yep. Airpump. It's the big hairdryer that blows clean air into the exhaust during warmup. Whether that's to speed up catalyst heat up rate, or just to dilute the exhaust to meet the emissions laws is debatable (in my opinion - probably a bit of each). In the Honda it's under the battery I think - in the fron N/S anyhows.

    thats exactly what they are for, you pump air into the exhaust which then burns off some hydrocarbons and thus the catalytic converter "lights up" sooner

    Re: when using a standard ecu how to remover the immobilizer

    Hi, sorry for bumping an old thread.

    There is a way to remove/replace the immobiliser on the S2000 ECU. The infomation to do so is not readily available on the internet because many people are cautious about the decreased security if their vehicles.

    What I will say is that you can remove a chip in the ECU and the engine will still run but it will throw a CEL. The other way of doing it is by replacing the chip with an "immobiliser simulator", available from http://www.doctronic.at/mobilizer_fx01_E.htm.

    Are you guys still using the s2000 dash as well? I don't mind using the immobiliser but don't want to have the dash.
