Default ECU Swap

I tried doing a couple different searches regarding swapping a 2004 RL ECU into a later year for the purpose of overcoming the 1st gear torque limitation.

Does anyone have any links or leads on whether the '04 ECU will swap in and relearn with the BCM without issues? I'd rather find a solution for defeating the speed limiter than dick around with the 50% throttle limit and no VTAK

Thanks guys.

Just a thought, but if it’s a Honda J35, couldn’t you tune the PCM with something like Hondata, or is it a GM PCM that may not be tunable?

GM used a Honda motor and trans, but it's run off GMs ECU. So it's completely different.

Does any tuning company offer support for the VRL?

EDIT: it appears the J35 uses the same E16a PCM that the 2.2 ION uses... :facepalm:

No, the ECU is the same Motorola ECU as used in the Acura MDX.

They are completely different, just look at the connectors.

You can find good images of both on ebay.
