I've heard some people talking about getting there car tuned where they flash the ecu and it unlocks all this held back power. Does this really work? I have an '04 acorrd 6-6 with a K&N CAI. Is it worth checkin out? or should I not even waste my time.

Have you seen anyone actually provide any proof? Of course not.

That should be pretty clear piece of evidence itself.

As for "held back power", sure there might be some horsepower that can be squeezed out of the J30 engine, but it would be at the expense of longivity and reliability and driveability.

Honda has a good repuation for tuning engines, leave the engine tuning engineering to the engineers.

comptech

comptech makes a blower for the j30, or at least they did when i owned one in early 08. everyone that installed it praises it. look it up i havent heard of people blowing up the j30 with it either. although im sure many people who put downdrive pulleys on it with a stock bottom end may have had some problems.
