I’ve been using the stage 1 time for about two weeks now and what I can say the best about is the improved top end of the car that’s the min difference I’ve seen the car till pulling hard nice 5k sounds great with PRL Corba Race CAI
Perfect, perfect, perfect
This is for a '17 Sport CVT. I was happy with the +6 map provided with my Flash Pro, but after flashing this tune, the difference is profound. Power delivery seems better at any RPM, and the car seems to be a lot smoother. The only downside is now I have to baby the throttle and keep an eye on speed, as it builds way faster than I expect it to now.
Simple install if you've already used the ktuner. The map switching was easy as well. Most importantly - this car PULLS. And it's buttery smooth. Feels like it came from the factory this way. Tires chirp in first and second, maybe just a tinyyyy bit of torque steer, way less than my old Fiesta ST (that had also been tuned). I love it. Next steps are PRL intercooler + cobra intake, which I'll also be purchasing from here.
very powerful when thro fully on.
Great map for anyone running stock turbo with basic bolt-ons and a stock clutch. Very linear power delivery all the way to redline

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.
