Highly recommended if you’re already changing the tune with ktuner/hondata. Getting a tuning unit is expensive but paying a little more extra for this tune makes it all worth it. Throttle is more responsive and most of the turbo lag is gone. There’s a rev hang disable feature but it doesn’t make a ton of difference.
Ktuner is a great way to add some spice to your car. Mixed with the tsp stage 1 tune it is just mind-blowing.
Easy to use tuner and Great tune and support from TSP. So far just running the K Tuner tunes set at 19/21psi map. Clutch is holding fine and MPG is the same or even better than stock. A must have if you want more power and fun out of your car.
Product is great! TSP stage 1 tune is amazing compared to ktuner stage 2. For those who have a CVT like I do. It will drastically change the way it drives. It drives like a V6 in terms of power. Passing power: it moves, and quick. MPG: almost identical if you dont always throttle. So it depends on you. Cant beat this package deal. As the TSP tune is much of a improvement over ktuner stage 2 base tune. Great first mod for your civic whether it is cvt or manual.
I have this combo paired with a Blox exhaust for the 18 EX-T Hatchback and now I’m afraid I will always wanna hop in and rack up the miles on my car because it’s so fun to drive now! The sound is louder than stock of course but it’s not too loud either. I get compliments from trucks, Subaru’s, and other Honda’s as I now get crackles in my exhaust system. It made my car perform better as far as power as well & the install was not too hard either. PRL makes quality products, TSP is great and their customer service is so awesome as to what I have experienced.
This cold air intake is one of the best, most fun, mods you can get for your 10th gen civic on the market. The LOUD hissing as your turbo spoils up, noticeable gains in HP, and looks you get from other drivers make every dollar spent well worth it. The Race MAF does require a tune. However, TSP is great at advising you on that. I ran this intake at first without the tune and noticed a noticeable turbo lag, studder, as well as air fuel ratiobbeing off. The next day Corey sent me a tune file compatible with the Race MAF because I purchased the TSP Stage 1 tune that’s comparable with the intake. I took off like a bat out of hell! Talk about fun!? Completely took car of my problem I experienced at first, and I was able to get the most out of this! If I could, I would buy this again, again and again!
Heard nothing but great things about this intake and gave it a shot. Now I see why everyone goes towards the cobra! Couldn't be any happier with this product💯!
KTuner V2 is a great product. Easy on-the-fly map switching, adjustable launch control, ability to store different tunes and the reading of live data is such a user-friendly experience. KTuner base-maps are good, but when you load the TSP Stage 1 tune in, it completely changes the feeling of the car. It feels much much better and you will never want to go back to the factory tune. This is one of the best off-the-shelf tunes and I highly recommend it!
Way more powerful then the ktuner basemaps and it's a way more smooth delivery of the power. It's the best $80 you could spend on your civic SI
I had purchased a ktuner through tsp because my buddy had told me about the free tune with the purchase of a ktuner so I went ahead and purchased it and I ended up having a little bit of trouble getting the stage 1 tune so thanks to the help of Corey I was able to get and upload the tune and it’s unlocked so much potential since, thanks two step performance looking forward to doing more business in the future.
Great support feedback. The tune is worth every dollar.
This intake is amazing! The quality of the hardware is great and the install is easy, once you get the bottom portion of the stock intake off. The bottom portion of the stock intake is a nightmare to take off. I managed to take it off from the bottom of the vehicle with the removal or the two brackets that hold the stock one in place.
The performance for the CVT Sedan is great, paired with the TSP Stage 1 Tune. The sound amazing. Give it gas, let off and you got the BOV sound :) I definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to get a little more performance & great sound for their 10th gen civic, whether it’s a CVT or manual!
This is a wonderful Stage 1 tune! I have a 2020 Civic Si that's completely stock, so this really wakes up the car. It makes daily driving a lot more enjoyable by giving you more refined power and torque. Honestly, the car should've came like this from factory!
All I can say is wow
Nice smooth power curve, feels like a cleaner burn of the fuel.
The car feel much better ! Map 3 is awsome :)
I have a 2018 Civic EX-T Hatchback CVT Transmission and I recently just purchased KTuner V2 w/ TSP Stage 1 Tune. As far as my car goes I’m full stock for now other than a Mishimoto Air Intake. This product really woke my car up and has made me look at my car in a completely different way. All the reviews are true, it pulls, it wakes the car up, the horse power is completely different in a better way and super noticeable way. At first I tried the dual basemaps & loved those! I was able to tweak them to my liking & go on the fly. Then the next day I uploaded the Stage 1 tune and was highly impressed and how strong but smooth it is. I was able to go for a good drive on some good roads and test it out. The TSP Stage 1 Tune is how the car should’ve came from the factory. Once you’re on this tune you’ll be mad at Honda for their factory tune if you’re anything like me. Now outside of the product a little bit, I spoke to Corey the whole time about my order, about the tune and he was very responsive, very helpful, and also showed gratitude as well. The customer service is awesome from what I have experienced! I’m excited to add my PRL Cobra Intake Race MAF as well as my PRL FP/DP combo with the Blox Racing exhaust. At that point I think the tune will just be even better than what I have experienced. If anyone asked I’ll always mention Two Step Performance!
Wow. This tune definitely wakes up the car and it's a well spent $80. I have been using the Ktuner base map but the TSP tune is much smoother and more responsive. Paired with other bolt ons and you can't go wrong with this upgrade! So happy with my purchase!
Parts are satisfactory, customer service from tsp is amazing. Frontpipe/downpipe makes a huge difference is performance and sound. Thank you!
First mod and it is by far night and day!
Deleted clutch delay valve and added braided clutch line for improved engagement and feel.
Amazing tune, it really wakes the 10th gen Si up. This is definitely the best bang for you buck mod you can buy!
Great tune. Feels much better than KTuner base maps.
Makes you wanna turn down your music because it sounds so good. Plus you get some gains in HP (RACE MAF will need a tune). Overall amazing product, easy install.. except that one bolt under the car (take off skid plate).
Noticable difference over the basemap from ktuner. TSP didnt read my comments of keeping map 3 as default map when starting the car every time though. Wished that was a option but overall great tune for the money!
The month long wait cause of the backorder was totally worth it. The PRL downpipe and Cobra CAI are awesome and the TSP stage 1 tune is amazing.
Got here fast and easy setup. Definitely wakes up the civic si
Came within the time said and once installed wow the difference in the car, I mean why not come out the dealer with a ktuner on it.
So much smoother then the base tunes ktuner comes with. I highly recommend getting this!
You can definitely feel a stronger push as opposed to the Starter 21 or Stage 2. The vehicle seems to breath better and for longer as you accelerate. Might I add that in just regular driving that engine operation is very smooth. I only have an Upgraded IC and Drop-in air filter (CVT Model) and this tune is most impressive. For the addt’l $80 it is worth just as much as a custom tune on pump gas hands down. If you don’t have it and are on the stock turbo GET IT 👌
If using “Adv VSA”, keep the setting on LIGHT it is plenty good there and will save you from cooking the CAT.
Derek has done an excellent job with the tune. He’s very knowledgeable and I am more than happy with the tune.
I have a 2019 Civic Hatchback Sport Touring. The difference after the flash is night and day. So much more response out of the CVT and hasn't really changed the MPG. This is how the car should come out of factory! A must buy!
awesome sound on the intake, loud enough not to get bov
