Should be able to run it with a virtual machine program. My IT admin says windows runs flawlessly on his Mac with the program.

Can confirm, except USB passthrough to the VM was buggy. Might hinder your tuning efforts but worth a try.

Very cool, I know people always flip out about having a windows computer for kpro/ktuner. Tkane did my ladys car, never really finished since finding time to do pulls is difficult but hes customer service oriented for sure.

Strange... all 3 of us are neighbors and all use Tkane for tuning lol
If you guys are having trouble finding time to do pulls, I've found that 5-5:30am seems to be a decent time. Haven't run into law enforcement yet lol. Late nights on weekends have worked too but a bit more sketchy as officers are looking for drunk drivers.

I prefer to use the dyno but Tkane made sense for my lady's car since its simple bolt ons . It certainly is the best ROI, i might use him for my new RSX but im kinda iffy on doing pulls even at shift change intervals for LE.

Sorry to just barge in. But Iím getting ready to take my first step into adding some performance. I have an 06 Auto. I do plan on doing a manual swap soon, but I wanna add some power for the time being. Iím thinking about buying Ktuner now but sending in my ECU is not an option because my parents canít find out about it lol

SO, would it be better for me to A. Buy the Auto ecu thats been unlocked & sell the reg ecu?
Or B. Wait until I get all the parts together for the manual swap & get ktuner then?

Iím trying to figure out which approach would be more cost effective

If you want the extra bit of power, just buy it now. You will still benefit from it even though you have an auto trans. The reflash isn't anything spectacular, but it's an improvement over stock. Paired it with bolt ons and it made highway merging/passing much easier.

Cost effective steps:
1. Save for a type s
2. Tell your parents you're a grown ass person (I wont assume your gender bro #me2)
3. Revel in the cost/labor savings

Stack that money and wait, theres a good life lesson in there somewhere about good things and waiting

Yes but Iíve already invested into this RSX ontop of that, I have 5K left to pay off. Motor has low ass miles. It was kind of a steal. But honestly I was thinking of taking that approach. Itís gonna be at least a year before I finish paying this one off

In that case, I'd save up and do it all at once. Gives you more time to assess options and possibilities, plus it would sure be nice to pay off you car before you start dumping money into it. As my good friend Dave Ramsey says, cash is king and debt is dumb.

Yes thats exactly what I was thinking. But I may just wait & do it all at once because the more money I spend, the longer I have to wait to do the tranny swap

I think thats a smart move. I can use this time to do all my flashy mods (splitter, coils, side skirts etc.) then when I get my other job I can go for the swap. I just get bummed out about how ass that A3 motor is * My dumbass was getting close to frank swapping it. Iím just gonna toss a snail on a few months after the tranny swap & call it a day
