    We are shipping more batches out this week and also having to ship out to some customers new corrected wire harnesses as well, we do apologize for any delays you may be experiencing on our flex fuel kit. We are planning getting the rest of these out this week and next :)

    Is this a K-tuner screen? Is there a comparable screen shot for Hondata (I'm a Hondata user), or any changes needed there? I was planning to use their stock calibration which I recall is the +6PSI Ethanol Tune. Thanks.

    The feature detects how much ethanol is in your system and adjusts based on that. This means if there is no ethanol in the system it will adjust for that, too.

    Before putting the billet EFI adapter fitting on, be aware of the two sizes on each side of the fitting, one is for the OEM line and the other is for the GM Ethanol Content Sensor provided in the PRL kit.
    Each of these specialty fittings will be placed onto the first barb on each line

    Either side can be installed first, but we suggest the PRL Flex Fuel side to be installed first for ease of tightening on the OEM Line side.

    The fitting assembly should look like this when everything is tightened down.

    38%20PRL%20Fitting%20Installed%20on%20kit_zpsnfpct8eo.jpg


    Connect the lower fuel line to the OEM line near the valve cover. Ensure that it is completely pushed onto the line and secure on the barb on the line and the clamp is secured on the line

    The final connection can be accessed two ways. From the top, or by jacking up the car and removing the plastic shielding to access the ECT2 connection. We chose to show how to do it without jacking up the car. This way requires that the plastic shroud to be removed with the plastic clips (Holes shown already removed clips)

    80%20Final%20COolant%20line%20plug%20insert_zpskuh2v1wd.jpg


    The factory clip can hang free or we suggest sealing it to protect against elements.

    Feel free to cut the excess tabs of the zipties off towards the end of the install for a clean look.

    Please be sure to have P2185 (Secondary ECT), P0128, and P0138/P0139 (O2 slow response) codes disabled on your KTuner or Hondata software. Our kit pulls power from the secondary o2 sensor and utilizes the ECT2 output. Enable flex fuel tables which can often be found in the advanced features section.

    PRL Motorsports Flex Fuel Kit Installation on a 2016+ Honda Civic


    Tools Needed:

    13/16” Wrench 12mm Socket Wire Cutters

    5/8” Wrench 10mm Socket Ratchet with Extension

    9/16” Wrench 8mm Socket Small Flathead Screwdriver


    Tools%20Needed_zpszbxaknn5.jpg


    **This kit is designed to be a direct plug n’ play kit, but keep in mind that an engine management system with Flex Fuel capabilities like KTuner or Hondata is required, along with a Flex Fuel Tune.

    Begin by inspecting the components of the PRL Flex Fuel Kit, if you have any questions, concerns, or out of place items please contact PRL Motorsports and do not proceed with installation.

    Make sure the engine is off and cool. We recommend discharging the existing fuel pressure from the system. Refer to the factory service manual for OEM methods of doing such. A method we use to disable the fuel pump is pulling the Slot 8 fuse in the interior fuse box (consult the underside lid for the correct fuse location), this is a 15amp fuse for reference, then attempt to start the vehicle. The vehicle will most likely run for a brief moment then stall. By doing this the fuel pressure is reduced, be cautious some pressure may still remain in the system.

    The final connection can be accessed two ways. From the top, or by jacking up the car and removing the plastic shielding to access the ECT2 connection. We chose to show how to do it without jacking up the car. This way requires that the plastic shroud to be removed with the plastic clips (Holes shown already removed clips)

    The factory clip can hang free or we suggest sealing it to protect against elements.

    Feel free to cut the excess tabs of the zipties off towards the end of the install for a clean look.

    Please be sure to have P2185 (Secondary ECT), P0128, and P0138/P0139 (O2 slow response) codes disabled on your KTuner or Hondata software. Our kit pulls power from the secondary o2 sensor and utilizes the ECT2 output. Enable flex fuel tables which can often be found in the advanced features section.

    This is great. As soon as I get my new clutch installed this year I will absolutely be picking this up. I love the detailed install post.
    I have a question that may have already been covered. Is there any damage that the extra ethanol will do to my car over time? Don't want to sound like a noob, just wondering what type of preventative maintenance I can do if there is a possibility of any kind of corrosion or build up from running E85 regularly.

    @PRL Motorsports Is there any need to disconnect the fuel pump and run the car until the engine cuts to purge the fuel system before starting the install?

    Looks like to keep a Mishimoto can you would have to replace the firewall bolts with studs and use female bosses to offset the the can from its current mounting position using the existing bolts. Is there a place that has metric bosses?

    Can someone explain to me what a flex fuel kit actually does/used for?

    It integrates an ethanol sensor into your fuel lines and allows the ecu to also sense the ethanol amount which can allow more aggressive tuning options etc with the proper blend. You are not required to run ethanol due to the kit just gives you a way to measure the percentage in the tank. It is not instant horsepower without ethanol and an ethanol based tune like TSP stage 2.

    Ah ok, I guess it doesn't make sense for me then, there's no biofuel stations around me in Canada
