    Leading the Civic Type R FK8 tuning community has been an eventful journey. The countless hours spent around the clock with our hard working team, has allowed us to innovate our FlashPro software and become the industry standard for FK8 tuning while helping manufacturers develop and support bolt-on products to greatly enhance this platform.

    Recently we have been working closely with PRL Motorsports to support their latest Type R products. Daniel, our chief calibrator was able to implement a tuning strategy to temporarily explore higher boost levels by rescaling the MAF sensor. In doing so this allowed us to reach new boost levels, providing there is room for more power, but this strategy is not ideal nor suitable for production software. Utilizing better fuels and a larger turbo, we came across a new ECU boost limit which was not allowing the Type R to reach full potential. With the new gathered data our programmers were able pin point the limit that was not allowing the FK8 to reach maximum boost.

    We are pleased to announce our team has been able to disable this limit and create a new quick Mod adjustment that allows our end-users the ability to turn this limit on or off with the click of a button, if they desire to do so.

    Software update is now available:

    Warning. This mod raises the boost limits. Check with your tuner.

    Just to clarify: are these stock turbo, full bolt on numbers? I ask because 370 is the typical full bolt on power limit.

    If so, did you encounter any knock at 426 whp?

    ^^^ Ditto. @Hondata Is it safe to enable this mod (disable EGT air charge reduction) on a CTR without bolt-ons (other than a FMIC) running base 91-octane calibration?

    We do not want to distract from this EGT disable modification by getting into the exact vehicle modifications. The change in boost and power from the one modification is the important part.

    We have completely stock vehicle on the dyno right now.

    The dyno charts you posted were from a stock vehicle?

    When we are finished with the vehicle on the dyno now we will write it up and post those dyno charts.

    My apologies if I’m reading the charts wrong, but it appears that the power/torque indicated by the charts don’t match the numeric values displayed at the bottom. As an example, it looks like the “before” torque is 440 ft lbs based on the graph, not the 353 that the number at the bottom indicates.

    look at the rpm the datas are based off of. It's not showing peak but showing the figures at 5500 ish rpm.

    probably to highlight the section that had the most gains.

    Gotcha. Man, I'd be petrified to make 400+ wtq on a stock engine.

    I've run over 450 lbft on a stock engine for the last year, and now are at 470 lbft, so the stock clutch is good for that at least.

    Downloaded the software update and I don’t see the option to disable the EGT air charge reduction.

    Yeah it’s not for many users it appears.

    I emailed hondata support and the reply they gave me was

    “What modifications in the software are you referring to” and have yet to rec response back

    Which calibration did you click on? I clicked on the 93 octane with downpipe and intercooler and it doesn’t show on the options list.
