I currently have the Hondata 4 reflash. How do I get rid of it when I go boost without spending another 600 bucks?

Spend $50 or so and send it back to Hondata. Or if you can a competent dealer to flash it back. Some know most don't.

Yeh, I was wondering the same too hehehe..

I was thinking of going back to my dealer and telling them I thought that my car had something wrong, because my fuel cutoff wasnt working. Act real dumb or something hehe.

sell it to someone who is stock right now. I believe you swap ECU, go to a dealer to have them reprogram your keys to the new ECU and immobilizer?

Yep...way more money if you sell. Do a swap at a dealer and pay $85 for the swap.
do you only swap ECU, or do you also have to swap immobilizer?

is $85 for both cars, or for only one car?

You would need to swap key/immobilizer/ecu.
That is the 3 pieces that Hondate requires dealers to send in.
I know, because I am a dealer.

how can you swap keys? :confused:

I thought you only swap ecu and immobilizer, then go to an acura dealer to reprogram your keys to the new immobilizer?

There are so many threads on this it is amazing...

1. The two people that want to swap should meet at a dealer.
2. Manually swap ECUs btw you and your friend.
3. Tell the dealer that you now want your ECU mated to your
immobilizer and keys.
4. Have them do the same for your friend.

Now both cars need to be there for Acura to do anything with the ECUs so you cannot swap with anyone that is not within driving distance. Hondata will also not perform the service for you because they said, "you need to talk to the dealer about that kind of thing."
