    For the 1.5T variants, several have put a kit to market. The PRL plug-n-play kit is available 'pre-order' on my website for $399 (I think I have it for free shipping right now too to 48 states...)

    Hondas from Brazil have had it but...good luck getting parts from Brazil. :(

    The main issue with E85 on the Type R is that you'll need secondary injectors of some sort...the factory DI fuel pump will max out and limit your power gains. There is a solution, but it is a little complex. We'll see what happens in the future regarding this.

    One more 1.5T Flex Fuel kit to add to this list: https://www.procivic.com/p/m/civic/sirimoto-e85-flex-fuel-kit.html. This one comes with a digital E85 gauge so you can easily monitor your approximate "power level" (i.e. ethanol content). This frees up your Navi unit so you don't have to jailbreak it and use the Hondata or KTuner app.

    Just installed Flashpro in a Mexican FK8 and have some doubts about the calibration to use, maybe you can advise:

    Engine Mods:
    Injen FMIC
    Full 3" turboback (DP is AFE with no cat)

    In Mexico gas is crap, so 91 octane calibration is a must, so my options:

    1. 91oct DP, intercooler, improved throttle response (This is the one that I have right now)

    May I use one of the following?
    2.- 91oc fullrace DP, fullrace intercooler, stock exhaust.....
    3.- 91oct injen DP, injen intercooler, injen intake, injen exhaust.... (I know I don't have intake, but it may fit)

    Car is not daily driven and is being tracked, so calibration I'm looking for should be the best for trackday use.

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    Hey first time hearing about a Mexican R owner! How is it down there? Seen other ones? Aren't you scared of it getting stolen?

    I think you cant use these because these calibrations are for the ypgraded turbo kit by full race even though thats a good question. I am interested in the results on our stock turbo but using this map

    It's not thaaat dangerous here, of course, there are places that you shouldn't go, but in general it's not a worry.

    Some friends have them, like 4, but is rare to see them rolling

    I actually have noooo idea, in the notes part doesn't state something about an upgraded turbo, but I'll keep reading about it and post results here.

    Hopefully Hondata will answer my post haha

    Is there any reason you want to use the other calibrations?
    I definitely wouldn't use the injen intake calibration though.

    Not really, just have the best fit for the car mods that I assume will give the best output power and be "safe" I don't want to stress or break anything for using a wrong map (remember will be tracked used)

    I was thinking in the injen to, more or less in the middle and I don't think the intake is that much of a difference

    intakes don't change much so you should be ok.
    I wouldnt use the injen intake calibration because that intake is hot garbage (performance and quality wise) so who knows how it was on the car they tested on.

    Yeap, I know that about the Injen intake, I was thinking in Mishi or AFE, but after reading that intake temperatures are almost the same that the stock box, I decided to better put a replacement filter and spend that money in something else.

    On Saturday I will track the car, I'll try to datalog one or two heats to have baseline data and start comparisons.
