    I have the tool that Honda has not the toy obd2 readers. So I can program and see all parameter on the car including ecu internal logs, over boost, over Rev, if the airbag were deployed and etc

    These car were built for boost so I don't think that extra 25hp and 35tq will hurt it. My v6 accord was 244 from factory and after turboing it made close to 500 crank hp or about 425-435 whp on stock internals. Honda over engineer their stuff really well.

    Please do! I'm seriously considering one. Let us know about 0-60 and fuel economy changes.

    Also just in case you think I am bias. I have both. Both work equally well. Hondata has the benefit of being CARB approve for on road use in California for certain models, but locks you out of certain parameters. Hondata only has 2 maps right now. K tuner is 250 cheaper which is nice, but if you want to do datalogs I recommend getting the v2 which comes with the nice screen and ability to store 5 maps.For kturner map it doesn't give too much detail, but I assume that they are for stock cars without other upgrades as far as what I can see. I haven't played much with ktuner since I wanted something I could set it and forget it.

But it's still a risk, and not completely untraceable.
    Actually that is pretty common these days as the car and motorcycle makers figured out what was going on with these "tunes". There are many things in the computer that they can see with their very special software.

    I believe it. Exactly why I wouldn't mess with the ECU of a economy family hauler, personally. Just not worth it.
