No it's not the stock ECU is already controlling it. Someone need to find the parameters and . modify them properly just like ktuner and hondata do already. The mechanical limits may have been met but not the ECU.Yes a stand alone is needed. Nobody has done it yet on this platform. The limits have been met at this point.
I guess Hondata hasn't figured it out yet, see that forum post aboveYes you would need tuning for it but that should be easy.
Simply because there hasn't been a need until recently. This platform has only been around a few years. The stock pump obviously flows very well if people aren't running into problems until close to double the factory power output. Early VW applications with di need pump upgrades just to get the most out of the factory turbo and injectors. So the tuners needed to find a solution early on for those vehicles. Modern ECUs are very sophisticated in advanced. Adjusting hpfp settings are definitely more complicated as fuel pressure/supply rises with RPMs, But it's still really not that big of a deal once you find the parameters in the ECU and you know what you're doing. As more development is done in this platform either someone will find a workaround/fix, or will be the limiting factor for the platform and people will move on to something else. Either way only time will tell as they are just now exploring the options for this motor.I guess Hondata hasn't figured it out yet, see that forum post above
where can I purchase the ctr turboI have the CTR turbo on my Accord, including DP, FP, intercooler, intake, exhaust, etc… basically FBO, tuned by Derek Robinson.
I asked him the same thing: is the MHI turbo worth the extra ~$1000? He said unless you plan on running different fuel/different fueling system, there’s really no point as fueling from the stock fuel system/93 alone can only give you so much. The power difference between the CTR turbo and MHI turbo on 93 are very similar and really just not worth the $1000 difference if you’re not changing your fueling.
