2018 Accord 1.5 clutch slip

Post by ajgarcia » Sat Feb 02, 2019 11:53 am

Is anyone else out there getting any clutch slip with the stage 3 tune?

I know it come with the territory of the tuner (especially since I've got 42.5k miles), but it's not consistently slipping and wanted to see if anyone else has experienced it.

Update: for some weird reason, after a reflash, I have not had anything that seems like clutch slip. Really weird, but just wanted to let anyone who viewed this post know. Either I'm totally crazy or the ECM may have been interfering (which is probably not the case at all)

The EU itself will have nothing to do with the clutch as it is mechanical. If you make too much torque or abuse the clutch it may slip.

You definitely need a clutch. A modified stage2 tune will cause slippage too during high load.

I now have modified stage3 tune and FX400 Sprung clutch and clutch masters light weight flywheel.

The clutch now definitely holds the torque. Picked up over at PRL.
