That hurts just thinking thatAft3rburn said:otherwise, they're saying that it won't lock out your Reverse solenoid on a 5 speed transmission, where on the type S it'd be 6'th gear. So it'd be possible to tool along in 5th gear, shift to reverse, and have a mess on your hands.
Yes, but:punkdrum4ever1 said:But technically it would work right?
As upgrades become available you will be able to download them. I suspect there will also be a great number of tuning files generated by users.Todd said:Hondata Doug
As you come out with new and/or updated tuning programs for the programmable ECU, will we be able to download them from your web site? I want to make sure that it would not be premature to upgrade to the programmable ECU as soon as it is available.
Or if you shifted into forth gear at 4:20 going 42 mph and you entered the Twilight Zone. Then what?wdsonny said:Hmm. Not sure if this is viable. But, what are the chances that a "user" uploads a faulty map (virus) and someone downloads it? Then when they run the map in the ECU and the car dies? What happens then?
I would estimate the manual base RSX ECU will be done around late April / early May. Just hold on until then.Will the tunable hondata that is going to be released march 1st work with a 5 speed rsx?
Yes. We're getting more boards made right now but I still think we will be out of stock after the first week of March for about one week.zulusTypeS said:Hondata, so are we going to be able to buy those programable ECU's on the 1st of march?
Have you tried to shift into reverse while moving? It is not possible because the reverse gear has no synchro, no dogs and no way will it drop down between the main and counter shafts (it will just grind a bit). I know this because I have driven for six months on a base ECU in my type S, so occasionly get reverse rather than 6th.otherwise, they're saying that it won't lock out your Reverse solenoid on a 5 speed transmission, where on the type S it'd be 6'th gear.
