Standalone Info and Questions

Hey everyone. New here to the forum. Recently picked up a 1997 acura 3.0CL new to hondas new to the whole scene but not exactly getting into the honda scene im trying to gather info on ECUs and wiring.

To start i have a 63 bug im using for an offroad car. I debated a subaru motor for the engine but there expensive and i decided not to go that route and decided honda for the availability of parts and information. first thought about a k series but that was quickly turned down again for money. i couldnt justify 1000 bucks just for the motor. i cant use d b f or h series becuase they turn the wrong way for a vw transmission. i now have a j30a1 in my possession

heres where my troubles come in. I have the complete car and all the wiring ecu sensors etc to go with the motor. but i cant run it as it sits because it'll just go right into limp mode since i dont have the auto trans it came with and im gonna be deleting all the smog junk. so i need some direction to go as far as what to do with my wiring and computer. aem is too expensive for me. i thought megasquirt but i cant find any support for honda v6. hondata doesnt support j series. im hoping someone has info here or has done a standalone swap themselves and could point me in the right direction

I know of someone who may be able to help you as he's a J-series fanatic, but J32s are his specialty.... It's worth a try though! Go to either J32a.com or Acurazine.com and look for yungone501!
