JDM H22A Dyno Tune vs. Various Basemaps (Ebay Skunk2, GSR P72 & More)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


We installed a internally stock JDM H22A into a customers 1990 Honda Accord and dyno’d it with some of the more often used basemap and ecu/tuning configurations used on H22 swapped vehicles.

This comparison goes to show it’s NEVER a good idea to run your motor (n/a, turbo or nitrous) off a basemap or stock ecu. You will always benefit from a good tuner tuning your car on the dyno. This car picked up 22 wheel horsepower, stock gas mileage and reliability over the best basemap we came across.

Modifications to the vehicle were: Stock JDM H22A Motor, Stainless 4-2-1 header, 2.5″ Catback Exhaust, 2.5″ Short Ram Air Intake, Final Tune on Neptune by Gold-Autos (Rialto, CA)

It's been proven that dyno tunes always make more power over off the shelf chips or basemaps, but an H22 was the wrong platform to test these basemaps. All the programs you tested are designed for 1.6-1.8 liter B series engines and 240cc injectors. Running them on a 2.2 with 290cc injectors is obviously going to cause the fuel maps to be way off and run lean. Having lived through the "chip" era before programmable ecu software was so affordable and common, I can tell you that Skunk2, Feels, Mugen, Spoon etc all make a decent ecu program for a basically stock B16/B18 and generally work pretty well for a plug and play ecu. In the end there is always more power to be had tayloring a tune to the specific vehicle though, so you did show people that effectively.

Nice. this answered alot of my questions thanks for the video. did you guys run closed loop where the O2 sensor can vary the a/f ratio or strictly basemaps?
