Default 2006 Rsx Type S question?

Hi my rsx type s has a CAI RH and a full exhaust system it doesnt have its cat and i was wondering the pros and cons to hondata reflash. also my car not hving a cat has the CEL now on and has gone into limp mode, now i could "trick" the car but what would that effectivily do to the A/F ratio? will it get out of limp mode and give me decent gas? or will it be worse than limp mode. Final question is how much horsepower will my car be putting out to ur best guess with intake headers exhaust and reflashed ecu. Thankyou.

you need to buy a O2 sim. Or oxygen sensor simulator. A little electric piece that jumps in between the O2 sensor, then to the factory wire, tricks the car into pass mode. A company called casper use to make them. Dunno if they still do, I bought mine about 8 years ago.

Have hondata. The best money you will spend. Nothing else to say.

wheat answered your limp mode q and ill answer ur ecu q. if you go to hondatas website they have dynos of there ecu from stock. it gives the car better acceleration and a few other things. your 2006 rsx-s is the k20 with i think 201 hp(2005 had 210). with up grades it mite be 220 possibly and if you get the ecu itll b a little more. i forget if acura dynoed the cars with hp or whp(wheel horse power if they didnt then whp should be right around 170-185
