So my 03 type s threw a rod about 2 weeks ago and i was able to find a jdm k20a. The seller is telling me that if i swap my old intake manifold, exhaust, motor mounts and accessories, my stock ecu will run the motor just fine. Is this true?

if you had a base rsx it would probably work.
but not with a type S.
i would say either
-get kpro'd then you can pretty much throw in what ever engine you want
or
-get a used k20a2 or k20z1

jdm k20a ::: basically a k20a3

jdm k20a type-R is close to a k20a2 but (if i remember correctly) doesn't use a Vtec pressure switch or something like that.

You can use you're stock ecu. Just have to switch a few things like vtec solenoid .speed sensor.stock engine hardness.
