I recently bought the KTuner V1.2 that came with the included TSP Stage 1 tune. I tested the Ktuner base maps before loading up the TSP tune on my 2017 FK7 Sport CVT. I liked the responsiveness in those base maps. Fast forward to when I received the TSP tune: More power, more response. I felt the increase in the tune quality from the stage 1 tune provided by TSP and can confidently say it is well worth the money to invest in the tuner, or this specific tune if you already have the tuner. 10/10!
Feel it, hear it, love it. Get it. Really gives my Sport Hatch MT a great ride!
This product is FANTASTIC. It makes my PRL Cobra CAI sound super clean.
I don’t get to enjoy some of the additional features due to my ECU version, so I can’t comment on that (I’m only running the last map). I’ve had a few different tunes on my civic; some were better if you liked shifting with the paddles, some were smoother, some were more fuel efficient. If you like to leave the car in S mode and get on with driving, the power bump in the rev range where the CVT likes to do it’s thing is incredible. I envy anyone who went from stock straight to a TSP Stage 1 tune (without trying the provided ktuner tunes etc) as the experience must have been shocking. Best $79.99 I’ve spent in a while
Thanks 100% recommended. Best tune for the 1.5t 2020 Sport plus MT.
This tune makes the car amazing to drive!! The support is also super fast at responding to any questions. I highly recommend this!!!

Two Step Performance and Derek Robinson are now offering the long awaited for TSP Stage 1 tune for the non-Si 1.5T Civic variants. Details are as follows:
187whp / 200tq - Factory Calibration
203whp / 250tq - KTuner Starter 21psi
219whp / 258tq - TSP Stage 1 Tune for 1.5T Non-Si
As you can see, we were able to achieve peak gains of 32whp and 58ft lbs of torque over the factory calibration. If you take a close look at the dyno chart you will find max gains of 39whp at 6100 RPM and 63 ft lbs of torque at 3400RPM! Torque gains were slightly limited to avoid risk of damage to the factory engine and transmission.
All testing was completed on an otherwise stock 2017 Civic EX-T 6MT with approximately 71,000 miles on the odometer, running 93 octane fuel. Tune features include:
- Numerous fuel, ignition, turbo response, throttle response changes.
- WOT shifting enabled.
- Adjustable launch control enabled.
- "Rev hang" disabled (the end user can enable "rev hang", if desired)
- All disables / monitors are able to be adjusted by the end user.
- Quick Boost By Gear is able to be adjusted by the end user.
- On-the-fly boost map switching active for normal and "Sport" modes. (see below)
- Throttle Responsiveness & Throttle Padding Settings are allowed to be adjusted by the end user so that the overall feel can be aggressive or more toned down, as desired.
Map 1: Factory boost levels and turbocharger response.
Map 2: 16.5psi normal mode, factory boost level "Eco" mode, Improved Turbocharger Response
Map 3: Custom boost level normal mode, 16.5psi "Eco" mode, Improved Turbocharger Response
Factory boost level in "Map 1" allows for easy "valet" mode when the KTuner unit is unplugged from the car.
Premium fuel (91 or 93 octane) is REQUIRED. This tune is not compatible with E85 "Flex Fuel".
This tune is available for both standard transmission and CVT equipped Civics. The CVT version of the tune has slightly reduced torque below 4000RPM to avoid risking damage to the CVT.
If you are ordering for KTuner and you see an asterisk (*) by your software version number, please note that your file will not include map switching. This is due to the base file we use from the KTuner software. Your file will be equivalent to "map slot 3" (max power) in our standard file. (FlashPro devices follow this protocol as well, as they do not support on the fly map switching.)
Suitable for use with the factory intake or a QUALITY aftermarket intake that keeps fuel trims in check such as the PRL Motorsports Cobra. Aftermarket downpipes are also fine. Mods such as this are expected to add power that is not accounted for in our dyno testing.
One of our testers brought his TSP Stage 1 equipped 2018 Civic EX-T with the CVT transmission to his local dragstrip and recorded numerous 13.X second runs, his best being a 13.6! (Other supporting mods include intake, exhaust, and intercooler upgrades.)
If you see an 'x' in the software number in the menu above, that is a variable. This means that 5AA-A0X is compatible with 5AA-A01, 5AA-A02, etc:
How to check your software version:
- Open Ktuner software
- Click on "Tools" in menubar
- Select "KTuner Unit Info" option
- Check the number under the "Software" heading
- Verify against our list above starting at the '5' in your software number
**This is not the same as your ECU hardware number on the outside of your ECU.**
This tune is for the 2016+ Civic 1.5T Non-Si only (LX, EX, Hatchback Sport, Hatchback Sport Touring, etc). Please be sure you are purchasing the correct tune for your vehicle and software number because digitally delivered items are non-refundable. (If you buy this for your 2019 Civic Sport with the 2.0L motor, it won't work, and we cannot offer a refund.)
Please note that all testing was done using a different dynomometer from our Si tunes. Because of this, total power numbers should not be compared against our Si tunes. As always when evaluating dyno results, the important number is the difference between the factory calibration baseline testing and the final results.
By purchasing this tune you are agreeing to the terms found within our site policies.
