The Honda Civic Type R is arguably one of the most recognizable and modified vehicles in the automotive enthusiast market and starting today, you’ll be able to pair it with the world’s easiest and best selling tuning solution, the COBB Accessport! With Honda fully embracing the light that is turbocharged engines in the US market, it only makes sense that the Accessport returns to the Honda to take full advantage of the new K20C1 powerplant and we’ve done just that with the AP3-HON-001. The best news is that all of the power increases are completely DIY and can be done anywhere, anytime, without any additional fees or unlock purchases required. One solution and done!
The Accessport V3 is the world’s best selling, most flexible ECU tuning solution for every platform and now it’s available for Honda. Unlock power hidden within the vehicle by replacing conservative factory settings with more aggressive calibrations. Upgrade forever with included off-the-shelf (OTS) calibrations and the ability to custom tune for most bolt-on modifications via Accesstuner Pro. It’s the last engine management solution you’ll ever need. Installation takes just 6 minutes from the comfort of your own garage or driveway. Simply connect the included OBDII cable to your Civic Type R’s OBDII port and follow intuitive the on-screen instructions. And for those of you with MY20/21 vehicles, worry not as you’re able to do the “jailbreak” using our COBB Unlock Box that is included in every Accessport kit!
The following list of vehicles are all supported by the aforementioned Accessport. Regardless of year, they are able to be tuned in the same manner for increased power output.

Off The Shelf Maps & Power Gains
Included in the Accessport, also available for download on our website, are our COBB Off The Shelf (OTS) Maps. These files are generated by our COBB Calibration Team for otherwise stock cars. Components like replacement air filters for the stock airbox and exhaust components that retain factory catalytic converters are safe to use with these OTS Maps. The Stage0 file does not increase power as it retains all factory calibration data but provides the ability to utilize all of the other Accessport functions, such as data monitoring and logging.
Our Stage 1 files are aimed at really taking advantage of what Honda has left on the table. With increased boost pressure and more aggressive timing/fueling curves, and much more, we are able to produce a significant increase in both low end torque as well as top end power.
- Stage0 v100
- Stage1 91 OCT or 95 RON v100
- Stage1 93 OCT or 98 RON v100

In the clear, no matter where you live
The COBB Accessport for the 2017-2021 Honda Civic Type R (AP3-HON-001) allows you to flash and tune without worry as our device and all calibrations come with coverage via an executive order from CARB (D-660-174). This means you don’t need to duck and dodge the fuzz or even need to uninstall before going in for any smog checks. We’ve got you completely covered at full power, no secondary neutered calibration.
Only The Best!
With the AP3-HON-001 Accessport, you’ll have the fastest logging rate in the aftermarket Honda scene at up to 50hz depending on monitors and even the ability log an absolutely insane 49 monitors at the same time. You’ll also have the ability to live view up to six of those data points with digital gauges on the high-resolution screen!
But We’re Not Stopping There!
As you know, we can’t just leave good alone and we’ve got a bunch of goodies in-progress for the Honda platform! We’re already hard at work adding in your favorite COBB Custom Features like Launch Control, Flat Foot Shifting, Custom Traction Control…and more!
