you're asking for a pcm tune right? I'm not really sure some people do this stuff but the car is set at a pretty even power/mpg. Remember if you tune for power you will lose MPG.
looks like people are doing standalone engine management systems, which means you basically take out the stock pcm and rewire the whole engine. This is normal for a custom build turbo engine or something but if you're just adding maybe an cold air intake and exhaust system there's really no need to tune.

Well, we're talking about the TL here, not an RSX.

Anywho, JnR ECU is the only one I can think of.

I know a guy who is in Long Beach Ca, goes by Bubba, he always tunes honda's regardless of the motor and will do as many passes as you wish to pay for. If your interested let me know

As far as something programmable and plug and play, nothing I've seen so far. You'll probably have to go with a piggy back system of some sort.
