Hello everyone I’m looking for get a reflash for my ECU I would like to go with Ktuner but I’m not sure about a place here in California I could take it and they can do it for me, I really don’t know tunners and I don’t feel too comfortable sending my ECU somewhere, and if it’s like that I would like to hear or know from here or somebody where could be the best place or website, also rn I’m running a Injen CAI, KTuned RH and Hondata IM,still having my stock exhaust thinking about put on a type r axleback, i know about all the kinds of reflash but what about if I get the #2 having my stock exhaust? It would affect Something in a bad way ? Could I keep it like that until I get my 3 inch exhaust?Thanks!!

I would stay with the reflash#1 with the current bolt on set up. Once/if you get a nice exhaust set up( I would recommend full catback rather than axleback), then you can reflash the ECU to reflash # 2. If you have a laptop and own the actual Ktuner ECU, you can download the software, hook it up and select reflash #2 and sync it to the EcU and you're good to go. Also, you can send the Ktuner ECU to Ktuner and they can reflash it for you.

Since you have a RH, go with the #2 reflash, for two reasons:
1. The header does more to alter the exhaust and tuning than the catback does
2. If you run a RH on the #1 reflash, you increase your chances of running lean

I have the Hondata RH reflash (extinct, but pretty much same thing) and stock catback and it works just fine.

Why don't you take it to:

I’m just going to buy a ktuner equipped ecu. I have a 05/06 type s so that’s pretty much my only option unless i wanna spend double the price on hondata and have to change the o2 and shit. Lol that way i won’t have to ship my Ecu anywhere or be without it. But if you get ktuner i believe there is maps you can download and update the tunes yourself with a laptop
