Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I have a 97 Civic and am attempting to swap a (2000 or 2001) b18c1 that came with an OBD2b P72-A05 ECU. I am wondering if i can by pass the immobilizer if i get a P72-A03 ECU. Not sure the year of the car the P72-A03 came out of, but will it work for my desired swap with no modification?

AND WHAT THE HELL DOES "CHIPPED" MEAN???? used in the term of a CHIPPED ECU.

Pre-2001 Civics' do not have an immobilizer, use the ECU that matches the motor, that being the P72.

"Chipped" you could have looked up...
"Chipping an ECU just means your making a spot for a chip (socketing) and telling the computer to now use its external ROM as opposed to its internal ROM."
