2.0T accord stage 1 vs base calibartion

Post by DimitriK »

Hello,

My name is Dimitri, I am new here and I do apologize if this subject has been broached before.

I have recently purchased the flashpro for my bone stock 2018 Accord 2.0 MT, and I have a couple of questions.

First, what is the difference between the base calibration and stage 1 +3psi. I am asking because I am unsure of which one I should choose.

Second, which stages would start requiring additional modification, such as cold air intakes and different exhaust systems? I wish to modify my car, but also affect its longevity as little as possible, so I want to make sure I chose the right map. Could I safely go into stage 1, or even stage 2, without requiring different mods? I already use 91 octanes, so any issues there should be none existent.

Thank you for your time and any help or advice you may provide.

The differences between them is the amount of boost they produce.

You do not need any additional mods for them.

Thank you for replying.

So I can safely go to stage 1 or stage 2 without any other mods? I just don't want to make a mistake and blow my engine :(

I'm sorry I forgot to ask another question. What does high octane mean? Is it 91, or 93+?

high octane is 91 and above.

You do not need a CARB tune outside of the US.
