K tuner v1.2

I am now officially a Ktuner V1.2 owner on my 1.5 civic sport hatch
I have no idea what to expect from this piece of kit but I have heard good things and am hoping for some good subtle gains. anyone else here using this software? if so what is the best basemap to start off with?, I have recently installed the PRL stage 1 intake too and next month I will have a catless downpipe being fitted.


cheers!

I'm going to fit the V2 somewhere in the (near) future but I want to add a custom map to the base maps. I want the software to be written optimally for my car.
I also want the V2 because I don't want to hondahack the radio unit, I've read too much problems with it. With the V2 I don't need my laptop to switch between maps if I don't want to hondahack.
Looking forward to your experience with it!

It's ok when nothing goes wrong. If you're unlucky and experience any problems then you're basically *****ed. Off course most of them work perfectly, but what if you're the unlucky one, and there are quite a few if you read the XDA topic about it.

Then the same is correct regarding ktuner. There are tons of reports with error codes popping up after reflash which go away when flashed back to factory. Especially with Honda sensing

That's a risk I'm willing to take (instead of the hondahack ). I've already had a couple of tuned cars before and never had any troubles.
Depending on my budget it will be tuned this summer or at the end of the year/next summer. My car is from march 2017, so still one year warranty.

The benefit of a Ktuner is that you can flash it back to stock without any marks left, there is no flash counter.

I've been using ktuner for about a year and had to heavily tune the afr calibration to lower the fuel trims and hit afr commands at wot.
25000km and no issues so far at 22.5psi max boost in the quite hot Greek summer
