I'm hoping to get a Gernby etune (have PM'd him). If not, any other recommended etuners or Dyno tuners in my area - SF Bay Area?

Hondata Flash-Pro comes with a few pre programmed tunes already on the device out of the box. I uploaded the "Stock Tuned" map when I bought mine. I believe that map drops V-Tec engagement down to 5500 or 5600 and bumps redline up to 8400. My car is a bone stock 06 and you definitely feel gains with that tune. However I did a lot of data logs on that tune in different gears and saw little things here and there I could change so I changed a few things and that is where I am at. From the "Stock Tuned" to the few adjustments I made I did feel even more mid range but that is according to my butt dyno. No REAL numbers unfortunately.

Back to my main point, if you receive the Flash-Pro before Gernby gets back to you for the E-tune load that "Stock Tuned" map into you ECU and run with that for a bit. You will notice a difference with even a bone stock AP2. The Hondata Flash-Pro is probably the best mod I have done to my car thus far! Have fun!!
