    We have had HUGE Success with our VRTuned ECU Flash for the FK8, Many hours of work have gone into ensuring the most amount of power while remaining SAFE. We develope our Tunes inhouse on our Mustang Dyno with the help of some of the best tuners in the industry. Our stage 2 Flash has consistently shown Gains of 64WHP | 81WTQ while improving throttle response and other areas!



    Tuning the ECU of your Honda Civic Type-R 2.0L Turbocharged engine is possible with VR Tuned. The driving characteristics are vastly improved while providing you additional benefits that your engine craves for. With this additional programming to adjust your ECU calibrations, we also make changes to the torque limiter to provide better throttle response.

    The new VR Tuned ECU Flash for the FK8 Civic changes air/fuel ratio targets, ignition timing, boost, and many other parameters of the ECU. The change is parameters exposes the performance that Honda left on the table.

    On our baseline runs, the FK8 put down 249whp and 257wtq. Keep in mind, measuring wheel horsepower will give you a lower number than the advertised crank horsepower rating. Torque comes on early but stays flat: a sign that the turbocharger is being held back. After getting a few baselines runs, we popped the ECU open and flashed the new tune file on it.

    With the new tune file installed, the FK8 put down 313whp and 338wtq, representing a gain of 64whp and 81wtq. Where the torque once flattened out, it skyrockets up and peaks at 3800RPM. This massive gain in low-end power turns the FK8 into a beast on the street. The big increase in torque continues to the top-end which results in big horsepower gains.

    Overall, the tune file we’ve developed thrills us, and we’re excited to offer it to our customers. With huge low-end torque gains, your FK8 will pull hard right off the line. The big top-end power gains put the FK8 into a whole new category of front-wheel-drive performance. On top of the power gains, throttle response, turbocharger lag, and fuel economy are improved.

    This is not an OTS Tune, it's a custom map that we developed, it's set up specifically for your car.

    You would purchase the Tune, Specify what modifications you have, Fuel Type, Etc. Then we will apply that Tune to your ECU. We can also update the tune and alter if you decide to add other parts later on.

    OTS Tunes are ok, but they are designed to work on Everyones Type R, even if its Stage 2 for bolt-ons, it's still not made specifically for your vehicle.

    I can speak from personal experience, this tune feels MUCH better than any OTS map's I have driven.

    Impressive but $800 for a tune? I see that you mention unlocking the ECU and all that stuff. Im assuming it will be less if you already have a ktuner/hondata and have ur ecu unlocked.. right?

    I'm interested and I'm local as well (Surprise). I just need to decide on an exhaust before I do this. Any recommendations? Also, what type of deals are you offering for this tune?
