of course you can get hondata k pro for your base rsx but it wouldnt be worth it. even with k pro and turbo, you still wont be as fast as a type s.

the test results don't even matter. why would anyone bother with an automatic transmission? the gear ratios are all screwed up for base models and the turbo lag would be awful. listen to chrys because honesly hit it where the source was. also henry the dog is correct, silly enough such a mod will damage your stock auto tranny. have you even considered the pistons or internals?? putting bolt on's into an AT in one story however turbo-ing it is another. this isn't a zr1 so make your life easier and just learn how to drive a stick already

OMG!!! The fail is flagrant here. THERE IS NO KPRO AVAILABLE FOR THE AUTO RSX. This is an excerpt from http://hondata.com/kpro.htmlAcura RSX/ Honda Integra * 2002-2004 RSX (Type S) (PRB ECU) * 2002-2004 RSX (Base 5 speed) (PND ECU) * 2002-2006 Japanese DC5 Integra Type R (PRC ECU) * 2005-2006 RSX (manual transmission with adapter harness and modified 02-04 ecu)I am either going blind or the word "automatic" does NOT appear on that page except to indicate that KPRO WILL NOT WORK WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.KPRO = K series programmable ECU. You can set the VTEC engagement point wherever you want and the same applies for the Rev Limiter. But for an autobox and slushie owner that piece of knowledge is as worthless as a screen door on a submarine.
