an 8-valve ECU will be totally wrong for the 16-valve head unless you can tune it - the 16v needs about 10 degrees less ignition timing across the rev range because it's a much better design.
I really appreciate your time and information! This project may be More complicated than I thought. I may be better off with a 89 2.7 engine
and add Rogue Tuning MAF kit.

I just want to get the most horsepower
that I can with out going broke.
