    Did you run a datalog with some WOT runs like I suggested?

    Hmm.. I feel like I'm going crazy.

    So I decided to plug my Ktuner V2 in to monitor knock count, etc today. This is the first time I had plugged the unit back in since tuning (dual starter in Tune 1 location). For some reason, I feel like my car is back to factory???

    Also, when you upload the dual starter tune, what should the quick adjustments show? Mine shows all 'factory' right now after trying to re-upload the tune.

    Abdool... to datalog, just press "start log" and press "stop log" before shutting the engine down.

    905Civic...it wouldn't revert to factory unless you uploaded the factory tune. I'm not understanding your question about the quick adjustments. Your V2 wouldn't show that. Quick adjustments show up on the pc software when you're setting up a tune. Once you upload your tune, all the V2 would show is the name you chose for the slot you uploaded it to.

    Okay, maybe my memory is just playing tricks on me. I also put my summer tires on, so maybe that is switching up the feel too.

    I understand the quick adjustments don't show on the V2 device. However, if I load the dual tune in the software and go to quick adjustments, everything shows factory. I thought it would have showed increases for this tune?

    The software only stores the unadjusted original version. You won't see the version loaded to your V2. You have to manually save your tune to your pc. Then you can open that to re-edit the settings or just check it out at a later time.

    Ahhh gotchya! So just to make sure I understand, lets say I start fresh and create a new tune (the dual starter 21 PSI). When I go to quick adjustments it will show factory settings for everything. If I wish to, I can adjust those to increased I or II. Then save to my PC, then upload the tune to slot 1. Then, flash in the car.

    Any suggestions for if I should adjust the quick adjustments from 'factory'?

    Such as:

    Along with early spool enabled?

    You got it. I mean, you don't have to save a copy, but that's the only way to update your current tune instead of always doing a "new tune".

    As far as early spool, I always enable it. I'm always fine tuning my quick adjustments; it's just personal preference for how you want the car to respond.

    If you really want to feel an immediate kick; as you are driving and above 35-40mph use your paddle shifter (while in D) and shift down to 3 and give it a push, you will feel as if you are in a M/T.
    Food for thought :)

    I was able to tell by the obvious increase in torque steer at WoT that my tune had taken. Didn't need a data log to tell me that.

    But srsly do a data log.

    Flashed this morning with the 21 PSI dual tune along with some quick adjustments - feels very nice :)

    For whatever reason, looks like you need to update Ktuner software. Quick adjust should look something like this, Tune 1, Tune 2, Tune 3 etc.....
    upload_2019-3-29_22-15-25.png

    Quick adjust can make your tune set and forget or as you move along here, there are ways to get unreal kick and lift. Study the default boost tables as they come in layout main and look at the graphs. Slight incremental changes can be made to bring out more power earlier in the lower to mid rpm's which then can surge to default final boost of 22 psi.
