I’m thinking about going flexfuel and I know I need the hondata race. My ecu hasn’t been jailbroken and I was wondering if I take it to the dealership and have them put on the carb +6 I think that’s what they offer, do they also jailbreak it for me? If so that’d save me the time to buy the jailbreak + the jailbreak device and just need to get a hondata.

I never heard a honda dealership will tune a car.

if they do, ask them if your warranty doesn’t effect by the tune and make sure they will still cover by warranty if something went wrong or breaks down.

Do you have a type r? You only need jailbreak for a type r. There are very few selected dealers that will “tune” a hondata base map but you don’t own the unit. Meaning you won’t be able to run flex fuel. Otherwise, in terms of a Honda dealer doing flex fuel and/or jailbreak. Forget about it. It’s not happening especially the jailbreak part.
