I drive a 2002 Rsx base and I need a new Ecu. I see the ECUs on eBay that say “plug and play Hondata ready Ecu 2002-2004”. My question is can I just order it and plug it up without having to get it programmed to my car at all? I’m only 17 and this is my first project car so go easy on me if it was a dumb question lol.

If the immobilizer is disabled, yes. I doubt that’s the case though.
I think it would also matter if it were manual or auto, Type S or base? A lot of variables there. They aren't just necessarily "plug and Play" for everything, to many variables one would think.

One would think. Most seem to be for the Type S though? IDK He did mention "getting it programmed for my car" and he's 17 on his first project. Much understanding as I remember those day's. Still he picked a decent ride to start out with!
