1. I would say that some of the tune's aspects are safer (richer fuel mixture when in boost) and others are more risky (advanced ignition timing, more boost, more demand on the fuel pump). Overall I don't think its a big difference in the safety of the engine aspect.Question for the KTuner users out there ... it is obvious that the KTuner / Hondata is the single best mod for the FK8. But question ...
1. Would you guys consider the KTuner / Hondata a safer ECU tune than OEM. Meaning - it's not running lean etc. for better MPG or emissions like what Honda my due.
2. If tuned - is there more "wear and tear" even though you are not driving aggressively ... say you are just causally driving to work or doing errands. Obviously I totally understand if you drive aggressively there will be more "wear and tear" ... just don't know if the car is tuned with KTuner / Hondata there will be more wear and tear regardless of driving style.
In addition to logging, some of the gauges on the JB4 are quite nice.
What?!?! I thought we were told repeatedly that there was no Oil Temp readout possible through the OBD port?
