Best bang for the buck

By Johnny Gutierrez on 2/19/2018

I like the street drivability of the base model Rsx. This reflash definitely improves that drivability of the base even further. I would recommend the increased rev limit to benefit the that laggy 2nd to 3rd upshift. This is by far the best upgrade you can do for the base RSX.

Holy crap it works!

By Christian Polanco on 6/18/2014

So here is my review, Holy crap it works. So I went through Kseries online. They emailed me the instructions and they were very helpful. I shipped the ECU and the immobilizer on a Monday and it came back Thursday noon. I went through USPS next day shipping. Not bad for going from Maryland to California and back. So when it came back I plugged it in, let it idle for 10 minutes and drove it around. It actually moves now. The main difference for me is shifting from stand still. I really dont feel like Im going to stall now. Just give it slight gas and it just moves, no more shudder. The next thing is chirping. Now my tires are in good condition. When Im gunning it, it chirps 2nd every single time. I was surprised to have it chirp a little from 2nd to 3rd, but then again I was borderline redlining. But as far as rough torque, it hasn't changed. The behavior of the torque actually feels like it has a pair of balls now. I had to wait and wait for it to speed up in. Now the power delivery is just smooth and doesn't lag like before. It use to take me forever to go from 50-100. I would have had to really be pushing it hard and for a long time. With the reflash, that needle just moves. I glanced at my speedo when I was pushing it, and I said, "Holy shit IM doing 100 already???" I was still on 4th gear doing 5-6K rpms. I disconnected the battery for 5 minutes, reconnected and had it idle for 10 minutes and took it out for another drive but to be honest I really didn't notice much difference from the first drive. Like people said before, it changes the driving dynamics. Whatever hondata did, it feels like they spread the power throughout the power band. So the K20A3's power is transferred in a more usable power-band starting at 3K RPM. Unlike before the flash where all the actual power was in 5K and up range. We all know to get to 5K you'll either have to punish your clutch by downshifting to 3rd or just wait until you get there; which by that time the other car is already out of there. So in conclusion, before I couldn't feel myself get pushed back against my seat when I was gunning it. But now I can. Mods at the time: AEM SRI, Apexi N1 Muffler.

Tottaly worth the money

By Mrh239 on 1/27/2012

this is the easiest and probably the cheapest you can get for your base RSX that will make a significant difference in engine power and overall car driveability. Before the upgrade you get virtually no power under 3000 rpms with the AC on. Now the car has improved torque at any rpms. If all you need is a little more power for your RSX and this is the car you drive every day, get the reflash and you will be very happy!

I was a little hesitant to purchase the reflash at first since I own a base model. the install was super easy, as I went to a shop just a few miles from hondata physical location. you can feel the difference in power and torque! I also have the greddy EVO II exhaust and AEM V2 intake, along with the reflash and royal purple oil, my base now puts down 200BHP(up from the stock 160) and somewhere around 170-172WHP, with much more torque than a stock K20A2 (I totally broke off a stock typeS on the freeway). the optional raising of the rev-limiter really helps to stay inside the power-band, and tho advertised to raise to 7300, mine will strech all the way to 7600 before it bounces off. I also purchased the gates racing serpentine belt, as my serp belt slipped off the pulley due to the extra RPM of the reflash causing my tensioner to need replacing, although I did have 119,000 at time of install. all in all, definitely worth it, as long as you have intake and exhaust to back it up!
