Now I am not 100% sure it will work, however, for the $150 I am prepared to try it. It looks like the X3 chip with the O2 sensor control is the way to go.
X3 Performance Chip with O2 Sensor Control - $150
Power Performance Chip X2 - $69
It would appear based on older posts that the Performance chips don't work on our cars, however, I will challenge someone to show me proof? Maybe the performance chips work on newer Acura's? I have yet to find anyone on the web that has had success so I am skeptical, believe me.
If anyone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it.

This also means that the tuning can be performed using MS compatible software. The current software being used is TunerStudio. It can be downloaded for free and also has a register option. More information is available here:
Your "CHIP" only claims horsepower increase. where as this new ECU, you can control all those parameters I quoted above.
also, your "CHIP" says it works for 1996 to 2012. You do know that there are different Engine chassis codes? How does the "CHIP" know which car it is. oh, its one of those "all purpose chips"
The New ECU that is available is pricey at $1400, but is able to dyno tune our cars and able to control all of the parameters quoted above.
We have several Turbo members who are using this new ecu. they've obtained goals of 500HP.
We've always had trouble tuning our cars, as there are no chips available. Now this ECU is a major game changer and will allow J32a3 swaps into civics and such, and allow typical "hot rod" mods for our cars, including changing out the Cam to a more aggressive one.
