im looking to tune my 05 Acura TSX 6 speed....any ideas on how to do it as I just realize the stock ecu on the 05 tsx manual cannot be retuned or whatever.... if you have a 05 tax manual how did you go about tuning your car with bolt ons...intake, headers, exhaust etc.... thank you ...

Reflash or you have to go to a completely new ECU. Saddly there is no way other than changing to an 06+ ECU and getting a flashpro currently. it's like a 1000$ thing. I am currently suffering the same thing. I do have a reflash from a forum member currently tho and it is the best by far. He goes by littlebo. If you can't get a hold of him tho Hondata does a reflash that is okay. It will run the car with all those mods.

Absolutely.. Nothing to it... :)

All the info is here: Hondata FlashPro TSX 2004-2006 with CAN adapter harness

You will need to buy a rare and expensive 2007-08 MT ECU.
Even if you find a used one, these are now old and questionable quality.
Plus Hondata FlashPro and the Canbus adapter cable.
Plus you need the dealer to configure the immbolizer and RFID keys to the new ECU.

A ton of dollars for very little gain with a mild engine.

As was mentioned, finding Littlebo, who can flash your existing ECU, is a much easier and cheaper choice.

There is the K-tune option but everyone who posts about it mentions issues.

The only reason you would need to go to a flashpro vs just a flash is if you start doing heavy mods like new intake manifold and cams and stuff like that. A header, exhaust, and intake car can run perfectly on a flash.

He no longer does this reflash service and has been MIA for a while now.
