I figured the 1.5T was a 7-second range car, its funny when people act like this is slow, it isn't. And it is a lot more fun with my Ktuner installed. No idea on 0-60, never tested. Its fun to drive, especially in sport mode. I personally do not need a faster car than the way it is now with current mods, I will get myself into trouble (already can lol).

Should be getting my KTuner V2 in the next few days here. From what ive read here and elsewhere, Im looking to do Stage 2 dual tune, Advanced VSA on, no early spool, and mild on the turbo/throttle response (not sure if its a 1-5 thing etc.). 1.5t 6mt, but looking for the most linear power delivery, dont need crazy boost down low, but certainly above 2-3k would like to feel significant torque. Does that sound about right, or have I misunderstood what other users have said/reported?

I use early spool on mine. I think the 2.0 guys are having some issues with it on.

Got the KTuner installed today and it definitely feels awesome. Ive only done a relatively short drive but man is it so much more fun to drive now. Hopefully i will write a more detailed review after i mess with it this weekend. I feel like theres not a lot of reviews specifically about the 1.5t so maybe itll help some people who are thinking about getting it.

Has anyone experience any issue with his/her tuned 1.5T CVT Accord?

I'm mostly concerned about the CVT longevity with the base stage 1 or stage 2 tune. The base tunes seem to be safe for the 1.5T + CVT combo according to the civic forums.

Be VERY, VERY careful about what you read in the Civic "forums". Members/"influencers" such as Andy Boyd, Scotts Merkin, etc. and their multiple usernames have infected those forums with their pitches to sell their tuning products and to knock other tuners down. They frequent those forums pretending to be "enthusiasts", but really, they are salesmen.

We banned them (and "metfanant", a.k.a "Fat Tony") from DriveAccord. You can find them on Facebook and InstaScam, and other places where their bullcrap is bought by those lacking critical thinking. They partnered with a few companies selling other products- so sometimes they recommend intakes and such. Whoever pays them, they shill for. Whores....

Want proof? Ask them about longevity or known problems, and they just reply "Oh, just flash back to stock in the dealer's parking lot using your smart phone, and claim the car just died. It will be covered under warranty, lol". And my favorite, "To the best of my knowledge, the dealer can't tell that you flashed software."

Idiots....

I purchased my Ktuner 1.2 used on ebay and played around with stage 1 and stage 2 tunes, staying somewhat simple/conservative. Then I added the improved throttle and turbo responsiveness. Very happy. Then I built a tune with the factory settings and just increased the throttle/boost/spool response. Is anyone sharing tune files?

good afternoon

I own honda accord 1.5t
I installed ktuner for myself, downloaded stage2, the pressure indicated on the map is 22.5 psi
I recorded a datalog, and got only 17-17.5psi
I noticed that I have a TPS.CMD throttle only opens at 80-85%
521746

ktuner does not want to help me and says that it depends on "environmental factors"
but i am elevation of 200 m (656 ft) above sea level
I have 101 kPA atmospheric pressure
all this speaks of good environmental factors
I will stick my data log
if someone has their own data log and they share it for study, I will be grateful

Was bored and update the software the other day, a nice feature is the boost target ramp rate, I set it to the most aggressive and it hit full boost super fast now. I have all my quick enables/adjustments set to the most aggressive and I love it!

Elevation, will affect your boost pressure, even the maximum vacuum you would reach if NA and therefore your tps as you just don't reach those columns in the map tables. I'm at 100m above sea level and still make full boost, I'll try to grab a log next time I'm out.

do you have a data log?

can you take a picture of this item?

Thank you, please write down the log
i'm 200 meters
this should be enough to have full pressure
my air pressure is 101 kPA

You have to DL the latest software version to see them. You can do this right from Ktuner website. 1.0.9.8. Then, they show up. I also use the most aggressive settings and have had zero issues, so, I'm looking forward to trying the new "Boost Target Ramp Rate". Hopefully, it is noticible.

No, I have the 2.0 L manual. Looking at release notes, it is only for 2.0 L. I must say, with the boost target ramp rate set to most aggressive, the car feels much faster. Stage 2 was good before, but, even better now.
