Not sure just yet what Hondata will deliver with the new tune. Its important to keep in mind that this is not an ordinary FlashPro, as its more difficult to do than a typical Honda ECU due to the encryption. The ECU will have to be removed for cracking, so its best to wait on this tune until after your warranty expires.

I hope that Japanese brands like JUN come along and offer up their tunes which can very well be plug and play although being a company that's all about refinement, they will take a while to bring something to market.

Generally it's better to wait until the warranty is up to make engine adjustments because even though the burden of proving that your mod caused damage is on the dealership, they can make life infinitely hard for you. I'm sure the tunes produced by well known companies can be trusted, but they don't exactly long term test their products before you get your hands on it.

I think for the most part that Honda is pretty understanding when it comes to aftermarket tunes. Have there ever been any reports of mechanical/powertrain issues as a direct result of a Hondata tune? I know their products are tested quite rigorously.

Probably depends on how hard you push the car on a daily basis, but I haven't seen any issues with Hondata in other models. Should something arise you could always reset the ECU back to stock, though I think that Honda will be able to tell.

I think you would need more rubber on the ground to get 350 hp to hook up.

Correct. Probably the best place to look to confirm this are track setups guys are using to run over the weekends. One of the first to go are factory tires.
