I recommend it to everyone that asks about the car, it is great and I can't recommend it enough, especially for people that need to deal with OBD compliance.
It's not a bad setup, but unless you have class restrictions requiring use, I would suggest Doctronics over the Greddy. If Greddy would increase support for the software of it, that would be a different story.

Everything has its pros and cons. Downside of the Doctronics is that you need to remove it for emissions, you need to have the car actually tuned by someone, and it is more expensive by about 50% once adding in a tune. I've never met someone with it and it is relatively unknown knowledge wise.

Karcepts also locks the unit down so not everything can be adjusted. I agree though, I'd never chose a Greddy normally.

Doctronics should handle emissions tests, it's kind of a k-pro copy.

KPro does not pass emissions here

Sorry about bringing this back to life, but I have a question in regards to Karcepts' wiring harness. Is it long enough so that I could mount the e-manage in passenger side footwell or some place in that area? I too am plagued with the OBD2 inspection ordeal, and a piggyback is the only way to go unfortunately. Thanks!

Yes, the harness is really long. I have mine mounted behind the drivers seat.

Even though it's installed, I haven't been able to drive my car since I got it .

Its not the header and 100% the cat that robbed you. It's a real hindrance in the exhaust system on this car when you start messing with vtec. Its a known fact that if you lower vtec bellow 5300 rpm you will lose power. Its unfortunately the negatives of a blanket tune where vtec was programmed to come on so early in the rpm, which otherwise works great if your running a tp.

I've finally been able to test it out. It's definitely the cat and not the header. I am running stock header with Tomei test pipe and exhaust.

I wish I knew about this mod years ago. Driveability is the same as stock, but the power is so much smoother and broader. Can't wait to actually be on track with it.
