Hello, I have a accord 2.0t. I have the opportunity locally to buy a ktuner that was used on a 2017 civic si. Is the software in the ktuner? Or do you download it after your ktuner reads the ECU thus making the ktuner basically the tool that you use to upload the tune to the car. On the ktuner website when you look for the accord 2.0t ktuner, it also lists the civic and accord 1.5 t among other cars as compatible. But I might be missing something . Just wanted to make sure or if anyone can confirm ? I attached the list that's on the ktuner website maybe im looking at the wrong thing?

So i emailed ktuner directly. I asked them this question and they basically said it should be compatible as long as you make sure it has been properly unlocked. The ktuner guys also sent me this link KTuner.com/applications . As long as it is listed there you should be able to use the ktuner.

shout out to the guys at ktuner! They answered quickly and were super nice about it.

Glad they answered you, I've had good luck with their customer support. Yeah, I bought a Ktuner from somebody on the civicx forums, put it on my 2017 Si and then swapped it over to my Accord all without any issues. Thats the great thing about Ktuner, as long as its unlocked properly you can use it on all those different vehicles. Enjoy your newly tuned Accord

Thanks for your feedback! even more reassurance. Their customer service is great. Howd you feel going from a civic SI to an accord? I wanted a civicx si also but with 3 kids and it being stick with traffic i had to go with accord.

I had an Si coupe with a toddler in a front facing car seat and a 9 year old and I had no problems with the space in the back. Just having to push the seat forward to get them out constantly sucked a little but the car was a ton of fun. Totally different car from the Accord. The civic is much smaller and it shows in the handling department. With the tune it was a real sleeper, I was running the TSP stage 1 and it was a lot. Running the Si in sport mode with the tune was awesome between the throttle response and the stiffer dampers. I can't compare apples to apples with the accord sport because my 6MT 2.0 sport doesn't get the fancy sport mode button. I will say I kind of knew what I was getting into the the Accord beforehand because my wife had a 1.5 EX-L before and I loved the way the Accord drove and handled for being so spacious. With having 3 kids you made the right call. The civic si is the best bang for your buck sport compact you can by in my eyes but the finishes, infotainment and comfort of the Accord punch above its weight. I love how linear the power is in the 2.0 with the ktuner on it, the civic died off at the top even with tunes far more than the 2.0 does. They're both great cars but I have no regrets moving from my si to the accord.
