    Got it really fast from the people at @Two Step Performance . I have an older Windows 7 lab top and it took awhile to get everything downloaded, but I got it done and I have the Ktuner dual 19.5/23 psi in sport.
    Car is great now just like what everyone said it would be. I had fun today going in and out of traffic. Very responsive and a different car.

    I want to know how long it takes for two step to send you the file with the tune they offer with the purchase. I did choose the option w/ tsp stage 1 2017-2018 Si.
    I have messaged them and emailed them, but no response. The Ktuner came fast though I can tell you that.
    Also from my local guys here they were telling me that the low end with this tune is great, but after that it ok? What are your guys experience with the TSP stage 1.

    Definitely a must have for this car!!

    Are these etunes (custom for your car with several revisions by a tuner) or off the shelf maps (same generic tune for everyone) that you are waiting for? Can you dyno tune at a shop with this? Congrats on the mod and glad you're enjoying the tune! Im just trying to figure out how it compares to my cobb ap for my wrx. Thanks!

    These are OTS maps. The ktuner comes w/ a few different ones, but TSP provides it's own OTS maps as well. OP is waiting for them to email it. You can use ktuner or hondata to get custom tunes made, just like w/ Cobb.

    Awesome! The Ktuner maps are good starters, but TSP Stage 1 is much better, as you can change to the different maps on the fly using the Cruise control cancel button (holding it down 3 seconds, moving the up arrow to select maps 1, 2, or 3 in the RPM gage) than holding the cancel button again so the rpm gauge goes back to normal. They should email it to you shortly, if you don't receive it check your SPAM folders or go on to the TSP support site and fill out the form, don't forget to put in the order number.

    The best thing about the TSP tune is that Map 1 is basically factory with some optimizations in throttle response, you will definitely notice the difference. Maps 2 and 3 are just crazy. I normally just drive Map 1, but will use Map 2 when I want some extra umph. On long trips I just use Map 1 because it gives the best mpg's, and at hwy speeds you have plenty of power for passing already

    does the ktuner v2 tsp stage 1 tune include 2 step - anti lag or is this a separate variable that you are able to adjust once they email you the tune through the software? Or is this just theyre version of the OTS map? basically asking i know you can fine tine your own base maps to your liking, can you also adjust these parameters with the tsp tune or does it come with a 4k or 4.5k 2 step cutoff??? thanks, have not seen any other company besides tsp that offers an addition $80 tune for free at the already $650 price tag. maperformance.com and prlmotorsports i believe only give you the base tune... is this correct? Thanks!

    Funny you say about map 1...when I flashed it I drove off and noticed the car taking off and driving with better response. Yet I thought I forgot something because I was looking at boost and i was hitting 18psi even in sport mode. Then I remembered the quick map change and that changed it all lol.
    I am two days with the tune 2 days warranty voided. I drove last night on map 3. I left it on map 2 for now.
    Map 1 will be for when the wife is in the car. She hated me driving on the Ktuner dual map.

    This is all it says on their website:
    Two Step Performance has partnered with Derek Robinson to offer a high quality Stage 1 tune for the 2017 Civic Si that offers an additional 55 whp and 76 ft lbs of torque in comparison to the factory ECU calibration. Details are as follows:

    182whp / 206tq - Factory Calibration
    208whp / 258tq - KTuner Starter 23psi
    237whp / 281tq - TSP Stage 1 Tune

    All testing was completed on a stock 2017 Civic Si running 93 octane fuel. Tune features include:

    • Numerous fuel, ignition, turbo response, throttle response changes.
    • WOT shifting enabled.
    • Adjustable launch control enabled.
    • "Rev hang" disabled with standard throttle padding. (the end user can enable "rev hang", if desired)
    • All disables / monitors are able to be adjusted by the end user.
    • Quick Boost By Gear is able to be adjusted by the end user.
    • On-the-fly boost map switching active for normal and "Sport" modes. (see below)
    Map 1: Factory boost levels and turbocharger response.
    Map 2: 19psi normal, 21psi "Sport" mode, Improved Turbocharger Response II
    Map 3: 19psi normal, custom boost level "Sport" mode, Improved Turbocharger Response II

    Factory boost level in "Map 1" allows for easy "valet" mode when the KTuner unit is unplugged from the car!

    Premium fuel (91 or 93 octane) is REQUIRED.

    Suitable for use with the factory intake or a QUALITY aftermarket intake that keep fuel trims in check such as the PRL Motorsports Cobra. Aftermarket downpipes are also fine. Mods such as this are expected to add power that is not accounted for in our dyno testing.

    This tune is for the 2017+ Civic Si only. Please be sure you are purchasing the correct tune for your vehicle because digitally delivered items are non-refundable. (If you buy this for your 2016 Civic LX, it won't work, and we cannot offer a refund.)

    I wouldn't worry about warranty. If you ever need to take it back into the dealership, you can just re-flash back to stock in 10 minutes. Also If Honda every does any ECU updates, re-flashing back to the TSP Stage 1 will not overwrite those updates from Honda. That came directly from Corey at TSP

    EDIT

    Unless you leave the Ktuner in the port, if you are using the TSP tune, it will reset to map 1 when you shut off the car

    You cannot make changes to TSP’s tune except for some of the quick enables/disables. If you want to tweak the tune then I believe you would be able to do that with the OTS tunes that come with the KTuner.

    Usually when they (TSP) do not ship overnight, that means they are waiting for stock. The moment they get stock he should get it next day as they always overnight if its in stock

    Odd, website didn't state they were out of stock, will keep waiting, hopefully it ships soon! Thx, hoping they respond back to let me know when they are back in stock. Got KTuner software all downloaded, just waiting on the Tuner and the Tune after.
