TSX of the Month Winner

hey guys i just want to mention that now K Tuner has tuning capability for the TSX for all 04-06 6 Speed models for now! it is for now all motor applications and in about a month or two they will have the update available to run for forced induction. the price is only $649 and includes the ecu which is a direct swap with your stock ECU. the tuning for the Automatics will be available shortly after so i just had to share this with those who are not on Facebook.

Edit - since I cannot mention the company because they aren't a vendor in the forum according to the PM's i received, I have no issue and will comply. However you can check out their website or just google them on the web. It's not my fault that a tuning option was made for the 04-06 that was this simple.

so the tune can be updated when and if you install new parts like flashpro, or its stays the same like the reflash ?

Looks to be fully tuneable according to their website

Ehh....not trying to be FlashPro biased here, but all those beta features makes me want to spend the extra $50 for FlashPro.

For the 07-08 flashpro is a no brainer. But for is 04-06 MT guys who can't find a 07-08 MT ECU or don't want to run a Converted AT this might be a good thing. I'm in for more info.

Wow I can't believe I missed the 04-06 part. You're right this could be a better option for 04-06.

I'm pretty much set on this. Going to hopefully pick up a Injen CAI and RBC VTC really soon. Then get the Ktuner ECU on the way along with a eTune.
Should have everything set up within the next month and half and report back with my impressions.
Just need to decide if i want VitViper or Turbogixxer to do my Etune.

Be mind full of a few facts though:



Main draw back for me is the loss of CC. Also the immobilizer light will be on, but that's easily resolved by just syncing the new ECU with your immobilizer at a dealer.

What i really like(from the looks of it) Ktuner offers a reflash for 04-06 similar to the 07-08 Hondata reflash in which it's essentially a full 1 time tune flashed to a ECU, including changes to the VTC. I haven't come across a price, but id imagine its the same as the RSX roughly $300.

That's not really something to be scared about, actually the opposite. We beta test all of our features before they go public, but since the code is similar to others the TSX platform will have a lot of features that have already been tested long term on the other platforms very very soon.

Awesome! Quick question I know it says the CC function might become available later on, is that a REAL possibility? If so, I'm assuming a software update would be released?

Also is the tuner able to pull/erase and disable readiness/CEL codes?

Really don't want to lose cruise control! I do a lot of highway driving, and radar set up all over :)

We'll be looking into the CC after major feature support has been released. It will be a software update. I asked around and it was more important to those I asked to have this tuning option available, especially with the savings, than it was to have CC working at the start.

Of course. You can see some of those options about 6 minutes into the overview video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgjzrgVKRbM

dont forget guys for flashpro you have to pay the extra to get your imobiliser paired and for the harness.

i think Ktuner is win win for the 04-06's if i didnt already have flashpro id get ktuner.

infact ill be getting ktuner for my race car :)

you would still have to pay the dealership to pair the immobilizer even with k tuner unless you can live with the green blinking light on the whole time.

Down the road...what if someone wanted to send you their ECU ....and you add the product to the ECU would the price be the same? or is the main profit coming from the ECU you guys sell?I mean either way its a GOOD deal ..

We have a Mac version in testing.

AT testing is going well so far. As mentioned we initially released for MT only.

As mentioned on the site your factory ECU cannot be used for the tunable system. We offer a replacement ECU that is different from your factory ECU internally and works with our hardware.

I'm happy to answer your questions, but please keep it to details about the system. Answering questions related to the pricing got us banned on another forum. As we grow we're looking forward to sponsoring forums like this one and don't want anything to jeopardize that opportunity.
