Hey, that was all said with a grin on my face and a light heart. I wasn't trying to pick on anyone, it was meant as humor only. I "speculate" as much as anyone else.

Now chill.

Apologies, Hondata. I didn't express myself clearly. I didn't mean to imply that the reflash had flexibility to handle greatly different boost levels, just that it probably had some flexibility to handle the slight variation in boost levels you said you observed with different intakes (on the 0.3-0.4 psi level).

I dont think the psi drops or increases. I dont think a SC works like a turbo. With a pully your always running at the pully psi setting which is a t 5 psi. What you'll drop is HP if you dont have a similar set up as what they dyno'ed with, which was SRI/RH/E.

Sorry sacrifice for sounding like a teacher.

I noticed that someone stated that if you apply the JRSC you have to replace the ECU back to factory. What happens if my original ECU from the factory was the N1 Mugen ECU. Will I have problems? I also have mugen valve springs installed when I got the car...will those mods be in my favor or will I run into problems?

You would need hondata to build you a special program that allows for this. You don't have to flash the ECU back to stock but you will run into problems if you try and use it. Detonation, misfire, pre-ignition, engine death, etc.... Talk to Doug at Hondata and see what they can offer you. The springs will help alot. As long as you don't have aftermarket cams I think you should be good to go. www.hondata.com and talk to them. I would.

Right on...I just hope I don't end up getting rid of the ECU I have...I just hope they can just reprogram the N1 I got now. Thanks for the advice...

Uh, you WILL need to deal with your ECU if you go SC'd. The Mugen will no way work with the blower. It's the same problem as using the #4 flash with the SC. Only magnified, alot. I don't know whether Hondata could reprogram a Mugen ECU. If's it just a regular ECU that Mugen reprograms, then I would guess they could. Another thing for you to think about is selling your Mugen ECU. Put that money towards the Hondata reprog.

Yeah...I figured as much. I guess if all else fails you are right...that would be the best thing next to keeping the ECU I have now. Thanks again bro...

The Mugen N1 ECU is a replacement for the original stock ECU. It has special, optimized mappings that are even more aggressive than the Hondata #4 reflash (9,100 rev limit and 4,700 rpm iVTEC cut-in). I think this is a non-programmable ECU, but I am not sure if it could be reflashed, or how different it is from the stock ECU.

There's no way you can use this with the JRSC. You may call Jackson and see what they recommend. You may also want to call Hondata and ask what to do. Most likely you'll have to replace it with a stock ECU and go from there, which means selling the N1.

The springs can only help. No problems there.

We can reprogram the Mugen ECU with any of our programs.

I would suggest you wait a few weeks and upgrade the Mugen ECU to our programmable version.

If I would get the JRSC Race Kit what would I do with my ITR flash.
I already paid Hondata 600 + another 200 for ITR upgrade.
Are you saying I have to spend another 200 or 500?

Conrad. Add this to the sticky.

An oil catch can would be a very wise choice for use with the JRSC setup. The catch can will go between the PCV (located under the neck of the JRSC pulley) and the top of the SC. I used 5/8 inch braided fish tank hose and mounted the catch can on one of the stock airbox standoffs with a universal "T" connector. You can shape and bend the connector to your liking. Make sure you get long enough hoses. Do not use the one braided hose supplied with most kits. Go out and get your own. The ones that come with the kit are not strong enough to take the vacuum from the SC. Inside the catch can I would put something to filter out the blow by gases that vent to the can. If your can comes with a filter then forget the last step. The Greddy can does not come with anything inside. After my drive from CA to MS I noticed the hose from the PCV to the can were black and the hose going back to the SC were clean. This is a wise investment for the JRSC.

Will JRSC race kit throw a CEL? Do I need Casper 02 sim or anything? Would it affect the life span of my engine?

Cheap Prices

Jackson Racing has now lowered the prices of the chargers. I have found a site with the race version well under $3000 and the regular version is just over $2000. If anyone is intrested in where these prices are at message me on AIM Dave123901.

Yes, Jackson lowered the list price of their supercharger systems for the RSX a while ago. I made reference to that in the FAQ.

Someone who has the race kit installed, like WDSonny, could give you a precise answer regarding CELs. Personally, I would not install the Casper O2 no matter what. If the computer triggers error codes, I'd rather do something to fix the situation than simply squelch the codes. As for life span, anytime you put more stress on an engine lifespan of certain components will be lowered. Knwoing that, it depends on how hard a car is driven. My guess is that someone who drives a stock RSX very hard every day will see a shorter engine lifespan than someone who responsibly drives a SC-equipped car.

The CEL's for the O2 sensors are not going to impact anything dealing with engine life span. I don't see the Casper's O2 Sim's being of any use. The ECU needs that information to adjust the amount of fuel being delivered to your injectors. Mess up any part of that chain and you could run too rich (not a bad thing) or too lean (very bad thing). I would just put the O2 sensors in the test pipe or hi-flow cat and be done with it. It's like buying a night with a hooker, yeah it's all fun for the moment but you know it's not going to last.

Has anyone verified this price? Maybe it's a missprint. Killer price though, makes me want to bust open the piggy bank

JR did come down with the price of the kits. And definately puts it in the affordable range.
