Thanks for the survey.Tuning device(s) used: Hondata Race Flashpro.
Tunes used: Started with +9 and scramble mode enabled + improved throttle response. currently using +6 via sport button/standard throttle.
Tuning experience notes: This car has been fun out the box. After tuning it, it did increase the fun factor however idk if the gains were really worth it. The car is quicker but at what cost? My clutch immediately started to slip, so I will be replacing that in the next coming weeks. After I have done so, I hope the clutch will keep up with the additional power that it’s making. All in all, my honest opinion would be not to tune this car and just enjoy it for what it is. If you do tune your car be ready to continue investing money into it if/when additional components break or wear out. I diy 99% of my upgrades/repairs so that saves some $$$ and I enjoy it as one of my hobbies.
Of course! Been meaning to do my survey.Thanks for the survey.
Honestly, most of the people surveyed running base maps (KTuner especially) haven't run into a ton of clutch issues. I kind of wonder about that Hondata Scramble mode. Seems to me (if used regularly) that could be hard on your car.
As far as you saying that tuning basically becomes a money pit due to all the wear and tear, that hasn't been the case for most who run base or ots tunes here.
