i don't recommend it.. then the ecu is going to get all messed when trying to look for lift around 6k -8k rpms. that will hurt your performance..
so basically by gettin the gts ecu the computer assumes your car is a gts, that's not a good thing because it isn't. your not going to get any improvements, don't waste your money!

that won't help. The engine is different, so your car will try to engage features that aren't there, ultimately you'll have the same car. Get the PFC or don't do anything.

well, i want it becuase, i want to have a higher redline. i want this becuase of the short gears that we have, i want to get more mph out of the gears, and with a farther redline i can do that.

think about this, for a moment, maybe even sleep on it.. for hondas, why don't people with non vtecs, just pop in a ecu from a vtec car, you figure they should right, with your assumptions with a farther redline, wrong!!! they are a lot smarter than that!

yea have fun with a further redline when your engine can't handle it, your over rev & blow your engine.. the gt engine compression is lower meaning, it's not made to be high revving up to 8 grand..
good luck to you, or should i say your engine...
