Good looking out man. It never hurt to ask. Maybe they'll have a change of heart (wishful thinking).

No, they won't. There isn't enough demand. Honda ECU's are notoriously hard to crack...and even more difficult to program an ECU with a calibration that will attract the most buyers (like I/E program, Type R cams/i/e/rh for RSX-S).

I had an '02 RSX-S and it took them IIRC 1.5 years to even crack the ECU let alone come up with a product. And there are a lot more K series engines in the US than J series. I dunno, I had Hondata on my RSX and trust me, I wish they would do something. It made a huge difference (95% of torque available at 2500rpms, totally smoothed out both the hp and tq curve, gave gains throughout the entire rpm band, increase in peak hp/tq, etc...). But like they said, its a huge investment on their part and I can guarantee there aren't enough of us out there. Sucks...

they have to create the market and if they did develop it then the market would be flooded... see the J series swapping into civics is not as high because they cannot find a market for the engine but if there is a reliable and powerful ECU like hondadata then the civics would do even more swaping and the aftermarket would increase just because of one company...

I think if Hondata did decide to rework the ECU for the J-Series it would be alot more profitable than they think. Look at how many people we have on this site that would be interested! INCLUDING ME!

No, I'm sorry but there aren't nearly enough people on this site for it to be profitable for them. Go look at the member count on clubrsx vs. this site. I bet if we made a list of all people interested on this site that would put down a deposit we would have trouble getting to 100. When they tested the market for the K20A2 originally, there were THOUSANDS of people that put up deposits up front.
