    I've been relentlessly searching for a chip/ tuner program for my accord i have a USDM K24Z3 accord coupe, I've visited hondata but i didn't see 2011 listed under their plug in tuneer. can anyone please help me find a good and legit tune/ chip and one that will actually yield results because even with specific and broad searches i can't find much

    I've seen mentions of Turbo and Supercharger kits for K24Z3 engines so there must be mapping options available.

    @H-Tune or @DeviateDefiant are you able to advise ?

    Im not going to FI, I'm trying to find a tune, i found a plug and tune from HONDATA, do you know if they make one for my model year? I looked and 2011 wasn't listed and i need to contort myself under my dash to read my ECU sticker to see if they have a comparable one

    I know your not looking to FI. I was just saying that if people are putting FI on K24Z3 motors then there must be some mapping options available.

    What those options are, I don't know sorry.

    Ah okay, its quite odd though given the huge aftermarket world for hondas oh well ill see if my friend who just learned tuning can help me. Since its all the ECU and changing values and mapping, in theory as long as his program works and his OBD II hook is compatible it should work, thanks for your feed back.

    Hondata unfortunately do not support the 8th Generation USDM Accord at all, and have previously stated there's nothing in development with no plans to do so. It's not good eh? As it shares the same engine as the 2nd Generation Acura TSX (our 8th Generation Accord), people have tried to use a TSX ECU with FlashPro in their Accord to no avail. Unfortunately you can't use Hondata's K-Pro either or any AEM solution to the best of my knowledge.

    Short answer is there's simply no off-the-shelf solution as it stands and the only way would be some really pricey bespoke engine management solution.

    Honestly mate, no, I'd be ringing about specialist Honda tuners and asking for their advice.

    Like I said, there must be tuners about as people are FI'ing these engines.

    See this example Turbo build 2009 tsx k24z3 - AcuraZine Community

    The OP of that thread says :-

    That's a TSX mate which has engine management solutions available, the Accord Coupe unfortunately doesn't.
