It wouldn't be plug and play. The immobilizer will stop you from starting the car, so you would have to swap keys and ignition and do know that the type s engine is different from a base concerning cam size, compression among other things. So you'd basically be putting in an ECU that will cause more stress on the car and will most likely cause damage. If you want full tuneability go with an AEM or Kpro or Haltech.
