Type s Ecu in k24 swapped base model

So i got a k24a with rbb head swapped into my rsx base automatic as of recent and it runs perfectly fine but it doesn’t run at 100% meaning not all 210 horsepower is there because of the base model ecu. Can i put a type s ecu in my base model and work fine and get all that horsepower im missing out on?

I guarantee you that your engine is not running perfectly fine. Get a tuneable ecu or sell your car to someone that knows what they’re doing. You can’t just throw stuff together and expect it to run correctly. Anything more than bolt ons requires a tune.

What ecu would u recommend for my current situation that works for an auto was thinking about getting the hondata but wasn’t sure if it works for autos also this isnt my daily it’s barely driven its a work in progress just trying to learn by myself.
Ktuner is your best option, and it will work with your original ECU. You’re still going to need to speak with a tuner unless you’re comfortable with copying all of the values from the TSX basemap to the rsx code base.

You’ve come to the right place. More often than not, someone has already gone through what you’re attempting and posted their experience on here.
Your best bet is to hit up Hondata and have them mod your ecu to work with your car. Or find a kpro'd ecu that works with your car. There are always some for sale in the FB groups. You just have to find someone who is trust worthy as a seller.
That’s not the issue. He’s going to need a custom harness to run the trans on the factory ecu if he gets Kpro, and I don’t think anyone even makes it anymore. Ktuner is the easiest solution and cheapest solution.
