2018 Accord 1.5T Tuning

Recently installed Ktuner Stage 2 Target 2 Tune and I love it! Since I'm personally new to this import scene and tuning, I'm looking for help and pointers. Two nights ago I installed the new RV6 Downpipe! My review is that it does exactly what its supposed too, it causes much faster spool, and its not hideously loud with stock mufflers still in place! My question is, What are some areas to look into, tuning wise to get more after downpipe install?"

Awesome. Glad you're enjoying it so far! Have you tried the turbo responsiveness quick adjustment?

The downpipe will help you with spool up and low end, but if you have a factory clutch or a CVT model you do want to limit torque output, so I'm not sure what specific area you're looking to improve, but be aware of that. If you're looking to push passed that level you may want to look at getting a clutch if you're MT.

Thanks for your quick response! Sorry I forgot to add that I do unfortunately have a CVT. I didn't do my homework before purchasing as I've always had trucks, and a wife that cant drive a 6MT. So where does the torque do the most damage? Low, Mid, or High end? Do you recommend stay at the stage 2 and enjoy? I see "sport" on the car and while it is yet fun, I think it could always be a little "more"... After Ktuner and Rv6 Downpipe, I'm unsure of mods to grab ahold of next?

As you can see on our dyno graphs torque is at its highest in the lower RPM range and tapers off as the RPM increases. If you're focusing on additional power you'd want to do that after the peak torque RPM where torque is already descending.

adjusting the turbo responsiveness in the quick settings, are you referring to this adjustment adding stress or building more torque in general?

That's turbo responsiveness in general, something you might enjoy if you liked the improvement a DP brought. The target limits for the turbo are still enforced with this setting.

So with the RV6 downpipe installed, going down the interstate cruising...I received a light reading: “Ennissions system problem. Power may be reduced. See your dealer.” How do I check to mke sure that it’s just the downpipe, and how can I clear this?

You most definitely took care of this, I originally wasn’t sure the best way to reach you guys to communicate, and I was on the road! A big thanks to Ktuner support team.
