It won't do anything... If you want more power, get Hondata and a good tune.

your car wont start. in the new RSX ecus they have transponders in the ECUs so your car wont start. if you want a type S ecu and you have a base your air/fuel ratios will be messed up. it have a chance for running rich or lean. get k pro

You're going into a hornet's nest. You're better off getting your ECU re-flashed by Hondata.
