Are you talking about an actual CEL (engine light on) or just those center dash "warnings" you can sometimes that go away on their own after a tune? If you're not getting any actual codes and the system problem still shows after a few drives cycles, go ahead and re-flash the tune.
I'm with you. I wanted my next car to be the next Civic but in some ways it's the "anti-10th gen" aesthetically. Say what you will about the 10th gen but those of us that loved the bold update from the 9th to the 10th feel strongly about our cars (at least I do). Sure it can be funky from...

In a bit of a shocker, Discount Tire is acquiring Tire Rack and will merge into one company.
Keep in mind a lot of this will be personal preference. What I like might be different than your driving style. Sometimes it's really just trial and error.
Here's some info that might help give you an idea on what some of the settings relate to:
The included KTuner Stage 2 base map is only 21 psi with moderate torque numbers. Stock clutch is fine.
By comparison, the Phearable 1.5 is 24 psi with higher torque output.
Maybe you're confusing "Stage 2" with some of the high output flex fuel tunes out there?
Anyway good luck with everything.
The KTuner tunes were designed on a stock setup. Not sure why you think you need mods to run stage 2.
I'd go so far as to say these canned tunes run smoothest on a near stock setup. Each bolt on added kind of adds another variable into the mix. More power sure, but not necessarily better.
Oh I know starter tunes have lots of adjustments. I literally have thousands of posts on that. But you had mentioned the locked OTS Phearable tune you're running, not a starter tune, so I was referring to that.
I mean the odds of hydrolocking the engine are slim, but I understand where you're coming from. Me I just run a PRL hose and aFe drop-in with my tune. I've had aftermarket intakes in the past but I'm not into louder sounds these days.
That Phearable tune is great. I currently run and love the...
Post up a datalog. That might give us some clues. Also, if you're installing something, install it as intended, not removing parts.
You're describing a low boost issue but a MAF problem usually corresponds to fuel trim issues.
As far as I know, throttle settings are universally applied. In other words, they can't be set up differently for different maps by the end user.
On the other hand, I don't know if a pro tuner has the access/ability to do that on a custom tune. Hopefully JR can chime in.
