Default Lean burn cvt ECM on eBay

Not mine, I would jump on this but I think it is too much work. Buy it now for $600.

Is this someone from here?

Description from listing is:

2000-2001 Honda Insights with a 5 speed get around 65-70 miles per gallon (or better,*if you know how to "hypermile" . The CVT (automatic) gets closer to 45-50, the reason being the CVT model does have the ability to go into "lean burn," where the*ultra high mpg is*achieved. With this kit, your CVT car will get about the same MPG as a 5 speed car as*will go into lean burn. *This kit is extremely hard to come by. The 37820-PHM-J51*computer was only available in Japan, thus there are only 4 cars that have been converted in the US. Yours will be number 5. Included is a modified 02 cable and the correct NTK 24301 02 sensor. There are also computer wiring changes that*are needed. Email if you want a link to detail. Buyer pays shipping. I'm going to sell this as is with no returns as it is beyond my control if you connect it incorrectly. *Like any electronic device, if you connect it up*wrong you will most likely damage it. *Feel free to email with any questions

Really it isn’t too bad. Especially with the pre made harness. All the instructions are posted. Taking your time I think you could still knock it out in one night.

It even includes a new 5 wire laf sensor. I think they run close to $200 so $400 for the ecu is reasonable.

Because no one else bought this overnight I just had to buy it. I am now looking for a scrap ecu to rip connectors off of and harness ends with the correct connectors so I won't need to cut into my harnesses.

Default CVT Conversion

Who is the seller? I have shipped out 5 of these at my cost to help members on the forum. I'll have to admit I would be disappointed if it's one of those just being marked up and resold.

So glad to see you got it! I’m really looking forward to seeing how or if it changes your already “insane” mpg figures you get!!

I’m not sure your ideas on your install.

If I recall I cut/hacked zero wires and hacked zero connectors.

The only “non oem” thing I had to do was peel back just a tiny amount of insulation on two wires and then “tack” solder them together. Very minimal

All the changes are easily reversible even the two soldered together wires.

There is a thread about the conversion that should shed some light on everything.

Don’t be afraid once you finish you’ll discover it isn’t too bad.

If your lost or stuck send me a pm and I can help you out.

My worst fear is getting the O2 sensor out. 12 years of salty winters and rust could be problematic.

Again I want to say thank you for your generosity and expertise not only locating and “very fairly” pricing these ecu’s for others beside you to benefit here.

Also making the effort to source and cut up and complete the pre made harness along with the ecu. Thus allowing use of existing wiring and no hacking or cutting required for the conversion. Super convenient!!


And finally thanks for the guts and knowledge to sort out everything and share with the forum so others could repeat your process for the same result.

If it is just two wires no concern. The one link I say last night showed what appeared to be 6 to 8 wires pulled from a connector, splicing, etc. I wired in the harness for a grid charger to balance the ima battery, swapped one of the ecms or bcms, added the double din radio, rear subs, autodimming rear view mirror, 2013 civic console, 2 wires should be OK.

Any update on your cvt mileage, operating issues, concerns?

I cant remember what size I think 17mm.

If your willing to scrap your old o2 sensor just clip the leads and try a deepwell spark plug socket.

I wanted to keep my old sensor just in case and took an old boxed end wrench and cut a slot out to stick the wires through and basically made a cheap mans flare nut wrench
