Did you ever get that exhaust done? Would love to see it.

Sorry for the super late response yes I did get it installed.

Did you have to get rid of the hdmi exhaust? If you did how did you fit that one on? Just remove the OEM defuser?
He didn't have an HDMI exhaust to begin with.

Going back to a post from a while back, a throttle response stage 3 would be sweet ;)

Kinda sucks that the 2.0l doesn't get as many options as the other trims but I understand why that's the case. Regardless, it's still a major improvement over stock

I’m very aware of that, thank you though. We’re gonna try and piggy back off the ECU (yes I know the stock ECU doesn’t read pressure) my tuner has a couple ideas (I trust him with my car I’ve seen the work he does he knows what he’s doing) well beyond my level of understanding. If that doesn’t work we’re going to try an entirely new ECU. I don’t want to go this route for the simple fact of it’ll be stupid expensive. My end goal ultimately is to do this build and record it along the way and make a turbo kit anyone can buy and bolt on. Problem is, no one has done it before so I’m treading in unknown waters. Our current biggest hurdle is engine management, if you have ANY ideas please share them! Just so everyone is aware, the turbo will only be only 5bls and under NO LOAD until we’re able to see it on the ECU and are able to map it.
Did anything ever come of this lol?

Hello 2.0 KTuner family. A quiet update has been posted to the website, 1.0.9.7, which will be pushed this week.

After reviewing many datalogs we've moved the VTEC point down to 5300. For those who weren't getting VTEC in first and second gear under some circumstances, this will also allow that to happen all the time. We would love to hear your feedback, as always!

Go to the website and install the latest copy of the software.

For those of you who would've been overly excited about this update and keep clicking your 'Ktuner Update' button in Ktuner without actually checking if they have the newest update, you can go to this link HERE to see what the latest version is that they have on Ktuner's website. I know if I was new to the game, I would've been that guy. :p

May I ask what this accomplishes by moving the VTEC even lower??
