It's what the car needed from the factory. Baring Hondata can help me clear these codes and they stay off it is worth it in my opinion. Hondata has 3 tunes on the flashpro for the CVT:
-250 Torque Tune (HP unknown but I asked and over the phone they said ~230HP)
-then the Carb legal version ^ (pending)
You can do the flex fuel kit from PRL and select a box in Hondata that lets you run the mixed fuel (hondata said stay on the 250 torque Tune. (Im saying this being you won't find this information anywhere, I had to call a bunch of times to find this stuff out.) I'm doing this for you guys! haha. Personally, I want to keep my car clear of after market parts. I'm happy with just the tune from hondata, but if you want to gain more power and risk the engine blow up- have fun.
the 250 Torque is safe and brings the car alive. You can tell it isn't stressing the engine. Even in Normal mode the car has enough torque now to merge on the highway or overtake with better confidence. Sport mode is even better for the brief moments where you hit a back road and need a smile. Not like giggling like a little girl... but it will make you smile.
I used to own a wrx that made 298HP that would do 0-60 in 5.6 seconds.....Even with this tune, the integra is not that car. The best advice I can give is don't expect the car to go from Zero to Hero with this tune. However, for me, I had the cash to invest in the $800 unit, and I am loving everything
about this car (except the power
) so to make the car Everything it needs to be my daily driver dream car, then Yes, the tune is 100% worth it. But don't complain or want more out of this car. Respect the 250lb torque tune and be happy.
