    Piggy back off this question...

    what is your expected total price for sending in our ECU and your flashpro?

    Flashpro is usually all priced at $690 so I asked how much on top it would cost for the modification to the ecu to be done was.

    It's slightly more complicated than that but you will be able to return to stock for testing etc.

    We have not set the price yet.

    Sorry if these are not definitive answers but we are still two months away from release.

    How long of a downtime am I looking at if I bring the ecu to you?

    Since I live in the same city, would I be able to drive it to your location and drive back with the modification applied the same day?

    The price of the fuel here is also very affordable almost $1.20 cheaper in the summer. We have tons of stations here with both so that's not a concern on my end. I've run E85 or Flex fuel in my last 3 vehicles and have always been a huge advocate for its use. From my experience there are diminshing returns afer going over E60 and under E35. It can be described as linear in that range but not above or below it. The biggest thing I can point out in reference to what you said above is, the gains of E50 are more like 80% of E85, definitely not half. The gas mileage drops off dramatically and the amount of timing and fuel adjustment is incremental at best over E60. Plus High Pressure fuel pumps HATE high concentrations of ethanol.

    Why do I love ethanol? My DIT WRX put down 235WHP/260WTQ stock. It put down 311WHP/340WTQ on E60. Same Dyno, Same Day. Bone Stock.

    Generally we don't take walk ins. Contact us closer to release date.

    Prepping the ECU is time consuming so we're going to be limited to how many we can do per day. We'll manage how many orders we take at once, but given that there can be a delay in ordering from our dealers and the ECUs arriving, it might be a couple of days. With everything else (KPros, S300) we can do same day service but I don't think we'll be able to for the FK8.

    Can you enlighten me what we should be avoiding?

    I'm not sure if I missed something

    Can you give us a ball park estimate on cost for your modification to the ECU? will it be more than $1,000?

    @Hondata you in the past have been known for releasing “safe tune’s” that up the performance but don’t necessarily hurt the reliability of the car. Obviously when you up the performance you decrease it but what would be looking at as a “safe tune” or reliable tune for power?

    Hondata is refering to the price of modifying the ECU. The flashpro device price is already set.

    I believe they've had that up since last year. It was floating around the forum and the Facebook pages a lot.

    >> Expected power gains.
    Sorry, still can't provide an answer to that.
    >> Price
    We'll probably just roll it into one price to make it simpler.
