like brian said there is no factory ecu (or program) for a lsvtec....to do the job properly you need to get it tuned. If you wanna half-*** it and get half-assed results you can use a gsr ecu/program as a minimum.

chipping the ecu isnt the $$ part the tuning is.
Zeeman will probally do both for you for a set price.
