whatever you do you will still need all the sensors that go with whatever computer you get the sensors get a five volt reference voltage from the computer and depending on how much gets back to the computer tells the computer to change the settings of the engine, it controls the air/fuel ratio and depending on the comp the smoothness of the engine if the comp senses no input from the sensors it will not run right at all if at all, especially the oxygen sensor, make sure you put a new one of them in, thats the most important sensor, it reads how rich or lean the fuel mixture is and tells the computer to either advance it or retard it, this sensor cycles about 10-20 times in about 10 seconds to keep the engine running smoothly and efficiently i think the basic sensors you will probably need are the TPS, CTS, O2, and the knock sensor
