Do we have any local tuners in Mass for Hondata or Ktuner?

You're just as well off (if not better off) getting an etune with IMWTuned's D-Rob or Phearable's John Vega. They're the best 10th gen tuners.

Just seeing as I only know of BrenTuning and they don't do Hondas
If you do not have any local tuners we would be glad to help.
Feel free to check out our website or inbox me.

Are you moving on from the Supra or just adding another pony to the stable?

One of the Type R guys might be able to correct me, but I think with their Bosch ECUs they need to be jailbroken before they can be tuned. That usually means either removing the ECU and shipping it out or physically going to a tuner who can do it in-house for you.

Getting into a Type R instead, planning on possibly a new home purchase and side project car. I have a 2020 that was Stage 2 tuned and not a 2021.

I see. Well if you're up for a ~6 hr road trip in your new Type R you could head down to IMW in PA. They can unlock your ECU in house and dyno tune you right there.

Not the case if using Hondata Flashpro.

As stated above, I unlocked my own Hondata and tuned my own right out of my garage. Obviously wouldn’t recommend tuning yourself if you don’t know the know how but as stated

Pherable
DRob from PA is good
Mike the Tuner from MD
RedStar Motoring from PR
Wang in NH (finally starting to delve into FK8 platform)
Javituned FL
Kefi FL

Bosch ECUs are very different then traditionl Honda ECUs, more like German Cars because I mean thats what Bosch is...

Most are able to also do remote etunes and be very reliable power.
Good luck and hopefully you jump on board of FK8 train. These cars are full of untapped potential.
