Default Can I use the same (Original) wiring harness from my 2003 RSX and swap out the engine for a TYPE S?

You know the THe 03 RSX w/ a K20A2 engine with 201 HP. If not what modifications would I have to do?

I don't think so... the base model wiring harness isn't wired for lift. I'm pretty sure you will need a type-s wire harness and also a type-s ECU.

you can use the same wiring harness. if anything when you do the swap your new type s ecu will have a transponder in there. basically you have to take the key to the Acura dealership and re flash or re buy a new for that ECU. the other route is K-Pro and they can disable it BUT that means your car is open for thiefs.
