Unless your car is built for drag racing, this unit serves no purpose. There is no need for "Launching" during daily driving.

Ok, your right about no need for launching during daily driving, but you do not need a built car for it to serve a purpose. Many people have the chipped p28 ecus on their daily drive ludes that offer the 2 step option for free so when you take your car to the strip one day you have it to make it easier.

Re: Who here has a 2step launch?

I'm just sayin, IMO, it's not cost-effective.

Re: Who here has a 2step launch?

I think most software used to tune a Honda ecu's offer some sort of launch control. I know Neptune does(what i use). So, it usually is cost effective. However, i wouldn't buy 5-6 hundred dollars worth of software and hardware JUST to have 2 step. But if you already have the means to use it, i say why not.

5-6 hundred dollars? A chipped p28 ecu is $175 and comes with a basemap, option for 2 step, desired vtec crossover, and fuel cut for free and is tunable with all the softwares.

Re: Who here has a 2step launch?

I got my ecu from phearable.net and got launche control on it just so no retarded people could rev my car all the way up to 8k and my ecu was $175 with an h22a base map and all I wanted on it done. I have mine set to 5k but it is not needed at all.

Re: Who here has a 2step launch?

i had my two step set at 3800 and launched pretty good with street tires.
if you say it serves no purpose then you obviously dont race much.

Preloading the clutch + being at full throttle w/ 2 step engaged = perfect launches

I wasn't being a dick... It is just right infront of you on the honda/acura ecu page... obd1 vtec ecu or obd1 non-vtec ecu.

Anyway, you need to tell them what you want everything set to. Once they program it, unless you have a way to change things on it, it is set that way unless you want to send it back to them or to someone else for changes.

If you are mostly stock then I see no real reason to get another ecu but that is a personal opinion.

Well I'm still noobish, lol.

Doesn't their basemap still make improvements, stock or not?
