It was brought to my attention recently that the 1.5 turbo on the hatch has headers as part of the engine, meaning they cannot be changed. Is this true ? IDK if buddy was right or what but that sounds strange.
You get a tune for it like Hondata that uses existing hardware to increase horsepower. That's the beauty of turbocharged engines. With that said, it's 2017 and gone are the days where bolt ons were available left right a center.so how can we get some real hp gains, the throttle body spacer is pointless, a loud exhaust is stupid and an overpriced cold air intake won't give any real gains especially in the hot heat of florida lol
there are no parts out yet for these its annoying
Ktuner V1 is available for $450 I just placed an order for one.true the flash is like 650
which you will need high performance tires for and will cost more money may also void your warranty after messing with the computer. Intercooler will help keep it cool but it's not worth the money in my opinion
what about intercooler since I'm in hot florida will that help at all with performance ?
let me know your process/results and if you need new tires etc. your not scared about your drivetrain warranty ?
You do understand that they can send the ECU out to the factory if they so desire and they can tell it's actually been reflashed?Well I just flashed stage 2 and haven't been able to datalog yet as my laptop died right after flashing. According to my butt Dyno it's a huge improvement. Im not worried about the warranty as I can flash it back to stock and if they ask why it's been reflashed I'll say I had to change the battery. At least with just the flash you can go back to stock for service in 5 minutes vs headers which would require you to take them off and put the stock ones back on if they had them for this car.
