After reading your posts awhile back I went back to stock until I could find more information. My car has never seen the drag strip and I travel 150 miles a day to work alone. Ktuner claims there tunes are safe, and not hard on the CVT, which I don’t drive hard either. Will you share a little more info on the oil cooler and anything else you can think of?

Your driving probably doesn't warrant an oil cooler. Honda's engine designs are pretty solid. Usually Stage I tunes need nothing more than a free flow air filter (of which I don't think there is one out there) and Premium Gas. Stage II may need more breathing, depending on car and tune. You already have the downpipe, a CAI might help but the stock design already sucks in cooler air thru the ducting. Injectors are the next step up to deliver more fuel etc etc. I would check the CIVIC forums for their experiences as they have had this engine longer. The CVT has been the subject of much conjecture as to what it's power handling capacity is. Hondata has been conservative with the 1.5T because of that from the initial release.

Mid Pipe

Mid Pipe should Pull some Heat Out of that Cat , so what's Been going On ?

During High Temp Hot Spells , when the Roads & Traffic are very Hot - I Pull Engine Bay Seal . .
I also have had the Lower Air Flow Shield the smaller one Removed to Pull more Air through . . and Exit Faster . .

Once the Temps got down to 60 Degrees Engine Seal whet back on . .

I'll be putting the Small Air Flow Guide back on soon as Winter Approaches ..

Have You been Experiencing any Oil Consumption , and Or has it been Very Hot where You are ?

The Tune Your Running is Set Up for the Mid Pipe ?
Do these Tuners have a Eco Tune ?

Most Modern Vehicles were Running 198 Stat's , My Volvo was 212 Stat , VW is 224 Degrees Stat ..
So a Mild Oil Cooler 20-30 Degrees wouldn't Hurt . .

I received a response from the guys at RV6 performance saying that indeed they are different downpipe for the civic si and the 1.5 accord sport. See their response:

Hello,

The downpipe and front pipe are different on the Accords. We will be releasing a accord version of the downpipe very soon.

Regards

Best fuel for my Honda 1.5

I have read contradictory views as to whether 93 octane or 87 is best for my 2018 Honda Accord. Some say you get better performance with 93 others say there's not difference. Can you tell me which fuel is the better choice? :confused:

So they released one for a short time assuming that the Civic DP would fit. It’s very close but a struggle and they will be replacing it once their new line for the Accord 1.5 is Released! I will review once I get it all worked out. Until then, I Have to say that Rich at RV6 is top notch and the customer service is on point.

Convictedconvict: If your question regarding a tuner was directed to my question whether to use 93 or 87 fuel in my accord. I have made no modifications to my 2018 Accord Touring.
