Had the pleasure of once again calibrating a vehicle with a KTuner system.
This time the vehicle that was getting some work done on the dyno was a Honda Accord Sport v6.
In this A/T vehicle the current mods were:
Intake, RV6 exhaust components and KTuner v2
We initially tuned the vehicle back in February, then now the car came back to see if it has gained any more power and the client was just there for current numbers. As we can not leave things alone and saw some areas in the tune that we could improve on I pulled the laptop out on this warm May day and proceeded to tune the vehicle once again.
Ambient conditions on the day were 78F, 82% humidity and 30.03 baro. Test gear was done in 4th
Initially back in February we jumped from 243.7whp (baseline) to 251.5whp with a little bit of tweaking on the Ktuner. Client came and with a little bit of further tweaking the calibration on this past day we managed to reach the numbers you see on the charts below:
266whp was the best pull and with a 274wtq numbers on the Dyno Dynamics.
This chart is the numbers using comparison mode which is a feature in which the Dyno Dynamics simulates numbers to what they would appear if a vehicle was tested on a Dyno Jet.
Apart from just numbers the over all driveability was improved since throttle response is by far more crisp and better MPG was also achieved with the KTuner on board.
