hondata s100 versus s300

Postby kracksmith » Wed Feb 22, 2017 1:38 am

My crx currently has a Hondata S100 and street tuned on p28 ecu, 80 shot nitrous, and dsm 450cc injectors with a b16a2 . I see and read everyone else is running a S300. What is the main difference between them 2 and wondering if it's necessary to get a s300 or any disadvantages running s100?

I plan to retune without the 80 shot nitrous though.

If you're happy with the S100, then no need to upgrade. The primary benefits of the S300 are real-time programming, datalogging, and programmable outputs. It's better suited to someone that will tinker with the tune on a regular basis or needs custom outputs, for things like PWM boost control or butterfly valves in the exhaust, etc.

One reason you see more S300 setups today is because Hondata stopped selling the older S100/200 stuff. Also tuners expect you to have a modern setup, so you may in fact need to upgrade if you can't find a tuner willing to burn you a chip for your S100 ECU.

The S100 also required expensive proprietary software to tune and IIRC uses a parallel port on your computer. Most have moved on from it for that and other reasons mentioned.
