Is this feature available to ECUs marked as "initial supported"?
As of today this is only available for Si models, which are all fully supported at this time. We can look forward to KTuner offering these options on non-Si ecus on future updates.

As you may already be aware, the turbo responsiveness setting is exclusive to non-Si models. While it is not applicable for the Si update, it is certainly something we are looking at for the non-Si variants.
Not to highjack but I hear a non si update may be coming, has it been talked about allowing boost by gear adjustments, like for 1st and 2nd for us CVT users?

BBG's been available since day one. :cool:

I'm hoping the new update allows us CVT guys to adjust throttle response and part throttle turbo responsiveness. Fingers crossed. Those two things would really make the TSP tune near perfect.

I've actually asked both JR and TSP privately and all I'm basically hearing is that there are many non-Si ECU's to get to (which is true). I asked JR if they could maybe release updates in batches of ECU's.

All I know is, it's a waiting game at this point. :confused:

Hats off to them for even making tunes for us but I agree with you. If you could change the throttle and turbo response along with the TSP tune that would be perfect.

I've asked for allowing us to adjust part throttle responsiveness like we can on the KTuner starter tunes (in addition to throttle response). No doubt in my mind it would improve the sluggish low end feel non-Si owners often complain about.

But I understand where JR is coming from too. He basically said that it might change the character of the tune and that it's the tune designers right to keep it locked. So while we should see the non-Si throttle adjustment, we may not get that part throttle turbo adjustment.

It would be interesting if TSP or Phearable did a tune for the K20C2. Though it's probably hard to do that engine along with keep up with the ECU versions coming out for it as the current non-si cars have so many iterations of it.

There's a couple reasons it won't happen. For one, there's only so much you can do with the normally aspirated engine. For example, KTuner only offers one base map compared to the numerous maps of the turbo models. Hondata doesn't even bother.

The main reason is that from a business point of view it makes zero sense. Look at my tuning reliability thread. Out of nearly 640 tuned cars in the thread, only 19 have that engine. The interest is low, except for a small group of enthusiasts.

Damn, that’s a low amount of people tuned. To be fair, those cars were mainly made for people who mainly car about going from point a and b. Makes sense.

any luck for offering TSP Stage-2 for NON Si 1.5T
@Two Step Performance
We appreciate your interest however there is no plan to offer this. We believe that the weaker internals of the non-Si make the flex fuel option require more attention thus we only offer custom tuning for that application.
