Our Hondata FlashPro allows full user tuning and datalogging of late model performance HONDA's. It includes Windows based software called FlashProManager.
The FlashPro connects from your laptop's USB port to your vehicles diagnostic port to provide 90 second programming with a variety of calibrations with extensive real time and stored datalogging capabilities.
The following are the current supported vehicles and their respective ECU part number suffix:
* 2006 + US Civic Si (RRB-A01 through RRB-A14)
* 2007 + European Civic Type R (RSP-E01 through RSP-E03)
* 2007 + Japanese Civic Type R (RRC-J01 through RRC-J04)
Hondata FlashPro features:
* Programmable ECU interface.
* Connects via OBDII diagnostic port.
* USB 2.0 connection
* Works with Laptop or Desktop
* No ECU modification necessary.
* 90 second ECU programming time.
* 20 hours on board datalogging memory.
* FlashProManager Windows software.
* Check and clear diagnostic codes.
* Custom laptop gauges.
* Theft mitigation
2006+ Civic Si / Civic Type R tuning features:
* Choice of AFM or MAP based tuning.
* Support for MAP based forced induction.
* Support for larger injectors.
* Ignition, fuel, cam angle table editing.
* VTEC window.
* Rev, launch and speed limiters.
* Race vehicle sensor disabling.
* Plus other compensation and trim tables.
* Map tracing
What do I need to run the software?
* Windows laptop or desktop
* Windows XP, Vista or 7
* USB 2.0 port
* CDROM Drive
Will the FlashPro be available for other Hondas and Acuras?
The FlashPro has the potential to work with most new model Hondas and Acuras made since 2007. Hondata's focus for the moment is for the Civic and will evaluate other models as time permits.
How does it compare to KPro?
KPro is a completely different product. It was created for the 02-04 RSX style ECU. It will only work on that type of ECU with the exact same Oki processor. Honda has changed the architecture of the ECU, including ECU architecture, processor and encapsulation, so that there is no way the KPro can be made to work on any other ECU.
K-Pro requires the ECU be sent to a Hondata for the installation of the K-Pro daughterboard. By comparison, new FlashPro owners need never remove the ECU from their car.
Because FlashPro is a different product from KPro, it has different features. Not all features implemented in KPro are possible with FlashPro.
Do I need dyno tuning?
It shouldn't be necessary for common part combinations (intake, exhaust), but you still have the option of custom tuning if you wish to get a little more. Camshafts and race headers probably will need tuning to get the most of the them - it will depend on the manufacturer.
Is there a VTEC window?
Yes. This means that VTEC will operate based on rpm and engine load. For example, the supercharger reflashes have a VTEC window from 3200 rpm - 6000 rpm. At full throttle, VTEC operates at 3200 rpm. At light throttle, VTEC operates at 6000 rpm, and for load between full and light the VTEC will shift between 3200 rpm and 6000 rpm.
Any option of immobilizer control?
The immobilizer can not be disabled. We've implemented a number of features designed to protect the owner of the vehicle from theft, and one of these is not to allow the immobilizer to be disabled. This is going to be much less of an issue than previous products because the ECU does not need to be removed / swapped.
90 sec programming - does that mean it can't do real time tuning?
Correct. In any case, if you are tuning a vehicle, you need to wait longer than 90 seconds between dyno runs in order to maintain consistency between runs. If you think you could set the dyno up as constant rpm or load, and then tune each cell in each table, this type of tuning does not work because the engine temperature and therefore output changes fairly rapidly, prohibiting this type of tuning.
If the ECU had been reflashed by another maker, can FlashPro still work?
Probably - Hondata could tell based off the ECU part & serial numbers plus the calibration ID. When you unlock the FlashPro it will only be reflashed back to a stock calibration.
Will this support a 64-Bit Windows Vista?
Not at first. We need to make sure the USB driver is working 100% before handing over the money to Microsoft, because after that every change to the USB driver incurs a substantial cost to re-certify.
Can it control nitrous?
Not at the moment. However, you can at least control the ignition timing to make nitrous safer.
Will dealers need a software license?
No. Every FlashPro will come with the full tuning software FlashProManager.
Do I need to send my ECU to Hondata?
No. Your ECU does not need to be modified for FlashPro.
