Default I have an '05 RSX automatic with a injen cold air intake. What results would i get from chipping...

...it? I wanna see if it is worth reflashing it? Or can somebody recommend something better that is decently priced? I'm not allll into the racing thing, but i would like to pick up the speed of my slow ass RSX.

Chipping would add 10-35HP.

It all depends on what other mods you've done. An exhaust would go along with the CAI and the chip. With the chip alone you'll get up to 25 hp and up to 30 lb-ft of torque increase. You'll need a dyno after you've chipped it to tell.

with reflashing you can see a gain of 10-30 hp form your K20. but first i would ad a header and a cat back exhaust. for evne more power when you reflash it.

- 7 Peak HP gain depending on the dyno and modifications (results will vary)- 5-10 ft lb torque across the rev range- Power peak raised 400 rpm from stock .- Rev limiter raised to 7300 rpm.- Fully dealer compatible - works with all Honda scan tools and equipment. This information was taken directly from http://hondata.com/reflash_rsx_auto.html. The vehicle tested is a '02 RSX base and also has a header installed so your results will differ somewhat but will be similar. More information along with a dyno graph is also available on the provided link.This is probably the best thing you can do to a base (or any K series with basic modifications) without jumping into the next price range (internals and forced induction).
