Today was my first day able to get out and see what it could do from a power standpoint. It really holds its power in the later rpms. I like that It doesn't have that instant torque. It should help save my clutch life. Really refined all around. Its also a lot easier to get consistent miles per gallon since it isn't so aggressive early on.KTuned...
The Phearable 1.5 is a totally different animal than the base KTuner tunes. It's much smoother with a more linear throttle. Wait til you really push that throttle down!
The base tunes tend to feel potent down low but not super smooth. And as you noted, the power really fizzles out up top.
The TSP 1 feels quite a bit different than a base tune. While it won't feel as punchy off the line, it's much smoother and more refined overall. It also feels faster at high rpm.On the flip side , I was just sent my TSP tune , seems like I read something about the TSP tune smoothing out some of the rough ends of the KTuner base tunes ?
On dual/ 21, factory simulation feels way more underpowered than my factory map. This is annoying for daily. Can’t use it at all. Also, I can’t tell about TSP1 but my custom feels much much faster than base 21 at high rpmThe TSP 1 feels quite a bit different than a base tune.

You're talking about when you press the Econ button, right? When set to "factory", it's factory boost levels but with eco features, like reduced throttle response. You need set the quick adjustment to "normalized eco" for better throttle response.On dual/ 21, factory simulation feels way more underpowered than my factory map. This is annoying for daily.

You're wasting your time with the whole returning the car to stock to take the car to the dealer. Its been proven quite a bit as of late that HDS can detect when an ECU has been flashed and returned to stock.Vehicle: 2018 civic sport
Total tuned time: 18months
Tuned miles driven: 30,000
Tuning device(s) used: ktuner v1.2 , currently using hondata flash pro
Tunes used: ktuner base maps, ktuner custom tune by Drob, ktuner TSP stage 1, currently self tuning hondata custom tune
Fuel used: Shell v power 99RON
Additional related mods: PREVIOUS MODS = prl short ram street, PRL cobra race, PRL catless downpipe, PRL catted DP+FP, Greddy exhaust, ktuner v1.2
CURRENT MODS= 27won street intake, 27won inlet pipe, Wagner comp IC+piping, ARK performance exhaust, 27won RMM (love the solid drive feel and extra engine noise)
Problems/issues: all ktuner base map tunes and canned tunes all needed professional tuning for AFR re-scaling, after attempting to use TSP stage 1 and getting bad AFR, i decided to learn this process for my own sake.
hondata's only tune available for my ecu was base calibration, and even with the 27won intake AFM modification the car ran terrible and couldnt idle correctly so a full AFM re-scale was needed.
27won RMM required adjustments for idle and reduced power on low rpm to help with vibrations within the cabin. this mod is never going to feel like stock so if rattles anoy you then stay away lol
Driving style: over the last 30k, i had 40min commute with mix of stop/start and highway driving with perfect WOT pulls.
but my short work commutes now with very little chance of WOT and alot of stop/start traffic. very hard for street tuning
Tuning experience notes:
i have played with my own ktuner basemaps and enjoyed using the drivability features but this was never enough so i decided to start adding engine mods and went down the custom tune path,however,when coming to emissions testing or dealership issues the car had to go back to stock ecu but with having catless or catted downpipe and race maf, these mods cause CEL codes so i decided to revert back to stock downpipe and stick to street intake. the move from ktuner to hondata was for more of learning curve so i could go back to basics. i have learnt a lot about reflash tuning and so much about these cars thanks
to the forum and its members
once i have completed my hondata tuning i shall keep using this car as my daily and may look at future mods. i cant see myself upgrading in the future so i would rather just continue my build
