Civic d15z1 po7-900 (not mine) on ebay

I've been emailing a gentleman from England about a ecu he posted. It's a p07-900 for d15z1 but with an automatic transmission. If anyone would be interested in trying lean burn with automatic here is your shot. I imagine they are rare. Won't get as much as a manual but would be a fun project

The automatic gearing sucks. I don't think it will drop the RPMs low enough when highway cruising. Right now I have the 3 stage set up with automatic and when on highway at 60mph my RPMs are almost at 3k. Almost out of lean burn range.

I wonder if there may be an automatic made that has a really tall gear that would work well for this. I've only had stick shift civics of this vintage so I wouldn't know

I mean to say, rebuild a cvt transmission and drop it in. I have everything I need to get it to work. All from a d16y5 engine. If it can drop the rpms lower that would be a plus for me.
