Doesn't the 1.5L take 87 octane? As in Premium fuel is only "recommended" but not required.

If so, what is the increase someone can expect on regular pump fuel, not 91, not 93.
Fuel Octane:
We offer a 93 octane and 91 octane version.
You may use a 93 octane tune if you plan on running 91 octane + 1.5 gallons of ethanol to increase octane.
Use of lower quality fuel may result in elevated k.con values which will increase knock retard.
Your ECU will pull timing which kind of defeats the point of a tune to begin with. Tbh just don't run 87 in 1.5T manuals. You bought the fun car, pay the fun car tax.

Got the Phearable Tune loaded today with the KTuner 1.2. No way stock clutch is lasting long! I've only stepped on it in 2nd and 3rd and car smelled of clutch when I got out! It is a very smooth tune, actually feels less dramatic than stock , but pulls like an animal in 3rd.

Quick question. I noticed in 2nd (and one quick romp in first) that I don't exceed 19PSI, but in third it does go to the specified boost level, is that normal?

They likely setup boost by gear for added traction without the use of Advanced VSA and that may be outlined on their website page for the tune.

I think John uses BBG in 1st only on that tune.

Keep in mind also that there are a lot of factors that go into where your boost targets are. To know whether things are operating as intended, I'd recommend doing a datalog. If the ECU was only commanding 19 psi and you hit 19, that's normal. I'm sure everything's fine.

So I am in the market to tune my 11th gen si. I unfortunately live in California 😵 and only have access to 91 gas. I understand that by adding about a gallon of e85 will help with the knock count, but my question if anyone could help clarify is there potential harm to the car long term by mixing fuels like this?

Both 91 and 93 octane versions of the 11th gen civic si Stage 1.5R are available.

If you wanted to use 91 octane with ethanol added to achieve 93 octane, you could as long as you stay at or under e15 without adverse effects.

Okay perfect thank you. So just to make sure I understand this.. if I go with the 91 tune, it should help with avg healthy knock control numbers while giving the car a performance boost, but for those that are running 93 octane and running the 93 tune of course will get more performance out of the car.

I'd like to play it safe for the meantime and most likely stick with the 91 tune in order to finally get out of stock mode... this car stock feels so under performance from the factory... lol

Last question I promise.. do you happen to know how the Phearable 91 tune runs off a stock 2022 civic si clutch. I understand eventually I should upgrade the clutch but was wanting to try out the tunes first.
