This is a Hondata modified 2002-2004
K series ECU,
plus Windows software and an adapter harness
for the 03-06 MT Element. It is identical in function
and price to the K-Pro
for the 05/06 RSX-S
Hondata only sells the adapter
harness with the modified ECU. An unmodified
02-04 ECU with adapter harness (with or without KPro) will not work on a 03-06 Element without the
internal ECU modifications performed by Hondata.
Hondata does not sell directly to customers. To order, fill out
this form and contact a
Hondata dealer. Turn
around time is usually 2 days from the time the ECU is received by Hondata.
Removing the ECU
This photo shows the mounting points of the ECU, which are very hard to see when installed in the car. The left lower bolt only needs to be loosened though.
This Element had a RSX-S head swap with AEM short ram intake. Exhaust system was stock.
Power is equivalent to what you
would expect from a mildly modified TSX.
Midrange torque (4000-5000 rpm) is down from the
stock Element due to the shorter RSX intake
What ECU can I use?
Any of the following manual transmission ECUs. The CRV is the best choice as it has mounting brackets to fit the Element.
- 20O2-2004 CRV ECU (32820-PPA-A01 through
- 2002-2004 RSX (Base 5 speed) (PND -A0# ECU)
- 2002-2004 RSX (Type S) (PRB ECU)
- 2002-2004 Japanese DC5 Integra Type R (PRC ECU)
- 2003-2004 Japanese Civic Type R (PRD ECU)
- 2002- Civic Si (PNF ECU)
The Element ECU
The Element ECU uses a different processor than the 02-04 K-Pro ECU. There will be no K-Pro for the Element ECU, so the use of the 02-04 RSX ECU and adapter is the only option.
