I have a long running thread like this at CivicX as well as a newer one at CivicXI. They've proven to be an important resource for both tuning information as well as reliability data.

Everyone knows tuning is easily the best power mod but it does add some additional stress to the drivetrain. This thread will document tuned 2023+ Integra reliability as well as tuned owners overall experiences.

-----------------

If you're tuned, please add your car to the thread using the format below (I've filled in some generic info as an example):

Vehicle:
2023 Integra A-Spec w/technology (manual)

Total tuned time: 1 month

Tuned miles driven: 1,000

Tuning device(s) used: KTuner V1.2

Tunes used: Starter 21 (Stage 2)

Fuel used: 93 octane

Additional related mods: Stage 1 intake

Problems/issues: None

Driving style: Aggressive bursts here and there but mostly granny. lol

Tuning experience notes: Best bang for the buck ever. Totally transforms the car!


Feel free to add pics, vids, dyno results and timeslips into your post.

On my 1.5T powered Civic X, I pretty much have flashed all the available tunes from Hondata, KTuner, Phearable and TSP. The Phearable 1.5R is second to none. It's smoother than stock with more of a meaty midrange and gobs of power up top. I'm sure John Vega has worked his same magic on the Integra tune.

Once people start adding their tuned Integras using the format in the first post, I'll start compiling stats. They will be updated daily in the first post of the thread

Vehicle: 2023 Integra A-Spec w/technology (manual)

Total tuned time: few days

Tuned miles driven: 1500

Tuning device(s) used: KTuner V2.0

Tunes used: Phearable 1.5R

Fuel used: 93 octane

Additional related mods: Stock

Problems/issues: None

Driving style:A little fun on the back roads and some higher speed runs

Tuning experience notes: Noticed the rev hang disable feature. Seems my shifting on lower gears is smoother since I don't usually wait for revs to fall. Haven't pushed it any waiting for 1k miles then I will test out stage 2 tune.

It was hard to resist... Now for the free oil changes I guess I will flash back to stock

I thought they could still tell that it had been tuned and reflashed even if you restored it to stock. Frankly I’d give up the handful of oil changes, but not 6 years of powertrain warranty.

Hopefully I won't need to find out. I will be taking it in for the oil changes and having them fix a few issues.

I've been tuned for well over 4 years and have always taken my car into the dealer tuned for oil changes. Never had any issues. Trust me, they don't have time or any reason to check if you're tuned.

On the other hand, obviously if you're taking your car in for a warranty related drivetrain issue, going back to factory would be smart.

Interesting I have been only running map 1 since I'm just at 500 miles. I did hit redline yesterday in normal mode..oops. today I put it in sport mode and dang did she scoot. I guess it still changes boost level in sport cause I was squealing tires in 1st then some in second. I didn't even give it WOT. But she seemed to really pull.

You mean map 1?

Keep in mind that the 1.5R tune should (I assume) have boost by gear open for editing. You can reduce boost in 1st and 2nd to limit wheelspin.
