Not sure which one to buy, looking to tune the car in the future for that extra bit of horsepower.

KTuner unless you're dead set on being CARB legal, in which case Hondata has a CARB-legal unit that won't let you do much.

From what I seen Ktuner is more user friendly if you are using OTS tunes from like TSP and Phearable, but I asked my tuner and he prefers Hondata. From what I heard, Hondata has more parameters and you can tune on the fly whereas the Ktuner is a bit more limited and you have to reflash after each adjustment.

How important is being carb legal? Couldn’t I just flash the car back to its stock tune for inspections?

Well whatever you decide, I would do it fast, because the state of California has already forced some sellers to stop shipping certain mods. I hear my glorious state is next on the chopping block 🤦🏻‍♂️

Everyone will likely prefer the unit that they know and own.... which is why I love my Hondata. Even the base +3 tune with rev hang disabled and increased throttle sensitivity makes the car an absolute joy to drive. The increased power is more than enough for daily driving. And then there is the +9 tune which is nuts! 😆 Pushing the Econ button drops the boost closer to factory levels but still keeps the throttle sensitivity and rev hang disabled. Finally, turning on the main cruise control switch takes everything back to stock, so basically you have 3 different driving modes depending on your cruise and econ settings. It's pretty nice!

Right now I'm just on the +3, but I'm thinking of running the +9 as the primary tune, a +3 when econ is enabled, and stock when main cruise is enabled. I think that's the ideal set up. You never know when you're gonna need that +9. haha
