I currently have the TSP stage 1 tune for the FL5 and saw that the Phearable stage 2 tune came out the other day.
How reliable is Phearable? I have heard of them before but I am still new to the tuning companies for our platforms.

John Vega definitely knows what he is doing, certainly reputable.

Not worth it to switch up, you already have most of the performance with the TSP tune. What fuel are you running?

I am running 93. The phearable tune puts out like 386 whp on a stock car.

The number doesn't matter. I would focus on the delta and not the number. If anything you would benefit from a custom tune over the OTS map from TSP.

Like I said not worth it, the TSP tune puts out the same power as the phearable on 91. So running 93 you will be close. And I agree with Clark custom tune at this point if you are really looking at all the ponies and on a stock turbo you won’t get a whole lot more.

I’m going to ask you what I ask my customers. What is your goal with the car? Is it more roll racing, track duty, drag strip?

This one hundred percent. You forgot 2 more options. Street car or a dyno queen 😆.

Some guys love to boast about whp and dynosheets but can't effectively put down the power to the ground. It's useless then except for bragging rights.

I did read a lot between TSP vs Phearable and some mentioned one drove better on street vs other bc the boost came on later vs earlier. Once again I think that would boil down to goals.

This is a curious statement. Where did you "read a lot" about FL5s running the TSP/Phearable tunes?

I think he might be referring to the normal civic platform. Either way OP has to establish a clear goal. I see so many people chasing after numbers and area under the curve where its at. So I’m just trying to steer him in the right direction. Can’t wait to get the Hondata to start my own testing and share with the community.

Sorry to clarify I've just read the TSP vs Phearable debate on various different Civic platforms and not the FL5.

For those that have had cards tuned, does it effect drivability at all? My CTR is also my daily so would tuning it have any negative impacts?

I got the Phearable tune for my 10th gen Si. The reason for Phearable over TSP was the location. I am not far from Phearable and the locals who had the tune never had a single complaint. Once, I installed the tune, I was extremely happy. I have no complaints about Phearable and will probably use them again on my FL5. Waiting for the end of October when Hondata comes down to jailbreak.

It depends on the tune, throttle response can be adjusted and improved but it will all depend on how well they tune it. If you are concerned for warranty I would keep it stock.

I used the Phearable stage 2 tune on my FK8, and that car saw a lot of track duty, and was also my daily driver. Zero complaints whatsoever. Absolutely RIPS at the track!
