This was rather an interesting project that rather landed in our lap. Client came in asking for a tuning solution for his Honda Accord i4 (K24A8) and he wanted to go the route of KTuner. I said sure I can get that for you and tune it.
The car arrived and then to my knowledge it was going to a automatic transmission vehicle that was fitted a TSX turbo kit on to it.
First I had to call the service of Jay to get us the headers on the ecu soldered since that needed to be done on this model ecu before we can even tune the vehicle. As usual Jay did a bang up job.
While the board was getting installed in the ecu, the tech was going over some of the things that still needed to be done to the set up in order for it to be truly ready to hit the rollers.
410cc RDX injectors were fitted, KTuned fuel rail was also installed and a few other quirky things that were completed before the calibration could begin.
Ambient conditions on the time of the calibration were: 75F, 72% hum. 30.13baro
Runs were made on D3 setting in the transmission.
boost was of the wastegate spring and it maintained at 9psi
We did not know what it was going to do as this sort of combination was rather odd and not something I had seen before. KTuner software did well to keep the engine steady and make the power it was going to efficiently make.
Was impressed with a car that makes 160hp to the crank and we managed to make 248whp with the boost that was being thrown at it.
Will post the charts shortly.
