So I've been considering either getting the Hondata or Ktuner flash for my Accord, but everything I've read is people using the Sport or Touring models. Will I have any issues with the added power on the stock 17" as opposed to the 19" on the Sport and Touring.

I mean, its relative, how good are the tires on the 17" wheels. A stickier summer tire will perform better than a All Season tire, doesnt matter the size. Regardless, the power is wonderful to have even when cruising. I wouldn't worry about "issues" you'll enjoy all the power. Oh and get Ktuner, you won't be disappointed, all things equal its a better bang for the buck considering it cost less that the other guy

The 19 slip too, it's bound to happen with that much torque. But with boost by gear you can help keep that traction on the ground. The bigger problem would be if you have a CVT.

In general, since the car is FWD and does not have a limited slip diff it's going to be a little wonky on either the Sport or EX tires. Even stock the car breaks the tires loose, just imagine another 70 or so ft/lbs of torque.

The car won't be dangerous, but you'll just have to be more aware of your conditions while driving and retrain yourself on the gas pedal.
