Hondata releases FlashPro for FK8 Civic Type R

Hondata has released the details and pricing for the FlashPro for FK8 (2017-up) Civic Type Rs.

The preliminary dyno sheets look quite promising. The baseline numbers were established with 91-octane pump fuel (this is the grade that's sold in California as "Premium" unleaded). With their base maps, the dyno results show peak gains of up to 39.3lb-ft and 33.6hp on 91 octane. If you're fortunate enough to be able to buy 93 octane premium fuel, then the gains are even more impressive, showing a huge gain of 71.8lb-ft and 46.8hp. Just for fun, they blended together a mixture of fuel to achieve an E25 (25% ethanol) formulation. With this fuel they saw 79.1 lb ft of added torque and 58.4hp gains.

For testing purposes, we've already jailbroken an ECU for the 2017 FK8 Civic Type R and we are awaiting the FlashPro unit so that we can perform independent dyno testing in the near future.

The ECU in the Civic Type R is different from the ECUs in the other Civic models, and it is encrypted by the factory. Hondata has to "jailbreak" the ECU in order for the FlashPro to be able to flash the updated tuning maps. This one-time process costs $250 and Hondata will return the ECU overnight as long as you can get it delivered to them by 10:30.

The FlashPro unit itself is priced at $695 and is available for ordering right now.
