    When the Type R first came out, we were unsure if it would have similar power modification potential compared to the 1.5T engine. Well, I'm happy to say that those days are gone! With the Hondata FlashPro FK8 Civic Type R Flex Fuel software update and this new SiriMoto E85 Flex Fuel Kit, your Type R will see 65+ hp and 70+ lb-ft of torque using just the Hondata Base Map and some E85 fuel (at about E40 concentration).

    Here are some key takeaways for the Type R version of this kit:
    • Available Base Calibrations will provide peak performance at ~40% ethanol (E40) concentrations.
    • The FlashPro has a specific safety strategy for the Type R: boost will decrease as ethanol concentrations surpass 30% (E30) mixtures.
    • Boost is reduced in this manner because the stock High Pressure Direct Injection Fuel Pump cannot supply the necessary fuel volume for full boost at E40. Even with the reduced boost, your Type R will make more power running E40 compared to E30.
    Key general features of the SiriMoto E85 Flex Fuel Kits:
    • Allows you to run E85 fuel, and mix it with regular pump gas. Your gas tank is not required to just have all E85 fuel in it after installing this kit (hence the name Flex Fuel). The Hondata FlashPro will automatically adjust your tune on the fly as needed for your current fuel mixture.
    • Potential for huge power/torque gain.
    • Helps to spool a turbo earlier and faster.
    • Allows the engine (and turbo) to operate considerably cooler.
    • Enables the ECU to dynamically adjust your tune, for a given amount of ethanol percentage.
    • Best bang for your buck power adder.
    • Easily monitor your E85 / Ethanol-Percentage level with the included Innovate digital gauge.
    • You can choose to run regular gasoline and only pump E85 when you desire more power/torque.
    • This kit was thoroughly tested and designed with very reliable components.
    • Easy to install and features pre-assembled fuel lines to plumb the Ethanol Sensor.
    • Comes with comprehensive installation instructions.
    • Covered by a 1 Year Limited Warranty.
    • Custom SiriMoto Flex Fuel Badge included with every kit.
    • Includes everything you need for a complete installation.Plug-and-Play (PnP) solution, does not require any splicing of wires.
    • Premium Chasiss Harness constructed with:
      • Tefzel Wiring
      • Deutsch Connector
      • Flame-Retardant Nylon Sleeve
    • Sturdy Ethanol Content Sensor Bracket for lifetime reliability.
    • Includes Gauge Pod to easily mount the Innovate digital gauge.

    @procivic have you tested this kit on a car with a catchcan radiumengineering or mishimoto? I would love to purchase this kit but also want to know if it’ll fit with my current mods. I’m currently running radium dual catchcans.

    The kit SHOULD work with either one of those catch cans, but since we haven't tested it specifically, I can't guarantee it. I think you would be able to figure this out pretty quickly by sizing up the bracket and provided hoses without even installing the kit.

    I originally went with the KTUNER in order to maintain the three drive modes, after using HONDATA for years in my other cars, and am now happy to say I'm going back. I'll be ordering these two units next week. Thanks for the detailed post and for the link to where we can get the packaged deal together. I've been mixing 101 oct in with our (shitty) CA 91 oct to get 93-94, which has worked well with the KTUNER. However we have E85 all over the area and, frankly, their are many reasons to swap to HONDATA/flex fuel beyond that.

    I too have the Mishimoto can and will see how it mounts up together.

    Yea, California 91 really limits the potential of these cars, but more and more we are seeing E85 stations pop up throughout the state! I'm confident though that you should be able to complete the install of the catch can and flex fuel kit, as it has been done on the 1.5T Civics as shown here:

    you have to modify the flex fuel kit bracket or move the catch can out of the way for it to bolt it up together. I ran the sirimoto kit previously with the mishimoto catch can and i just made custom brackets because i didn't like the bent bracket look under the hood.

    For those interested, I've uploaded a copy of the PDF instructions with this post. Feel free to check them out and see how simple the installation of our Flex Fuel Kit is.
