Default Converting back to stock.

I know that the internals on my car is upgraded in terms of pistons and rods and what not.
I got the car fully built and turbocharged but I want to revert to stock as I am kind of tired of the turbo setups now.
If I was to remove the Turbo kit and just put in a header and put back on the air intake, what other work would have to be done?
Would I have to have the ECU reprogrammed?
Please lend some insight on this.
Thanks

Is it tuned via the ECU? If so, open the ECU and use side cutters to cut the jumper on J1 (labeled on the board). You will now be on stock maps and settings.

If you have aftermarket fuel injectors or fuel pump, those will need to be returned to stock.
If you have an adjustable FPR (fuel pressure regulator) it will need to be adjusted to stock settings (40PSI, I think... double check this first).
Any vacuum lines that are left open need to be replaced or somehow sealed.
Put a header in place of the turbo/manifold/downpipe, and regular intake in place of the charge piping, and you should be good to go.

Thanks trust.
I'm getting it slowly but surely.
I've had other cars but this is my very first honda.
I just need to check out everything.
I give it another week and I'll have her runnin like a dream.
I'll have some fun with the turbocharged setup and then I'll decide what I want to do.
Thanks again.

Why would you want it to be stock? Leave the pistons, rods, infectors, and ECU tune and it will be not only worth more money but 100x more fun to drive. If its boring just get it tuned at a little higher psi of boost if your internals can handle it.
