Training videos
We've put together a series of training videos to describe the function and use of the
FlashPro. Some the videos were shot using pre-release software. Some displayed
functions have changed slightly. View the videos in High Definition Full Screen to view
the screen shots.
FlashPro Introduction
Hondata's new generation programming tool for the 06 - 09 US Civic Si, the Japanese
06-09 Civic Type R and the European 07-09 Civic Type R. A brief introduction.
FlashPro Getting started
This video covers the installation the FlashPro Manager software, the USB drivers,
software registration and upload of a calibration.
Race Calibration
Hondata has developed a Race calibration which allows you to tune with the MAP sensor
and bypass the limitations of the AFM sensor. A look at the tuning principles for forced
induction on a modern return-less fuel system.
Datalogging and Air fuel ratios
A look a the extensive datalogging capabilities of the FlashPro and the many ways in
which to examine your engine data. We touch on the datalogging of the air fuel ratios
and how you can use it to adjust your tuning.

The tuning process is similar to the K-Pro. For more detailed tuning videos specific to the
K-Pro click here:
Will the FlashPro be available for other Hondas and Acuras?
The FlashPro has the potential to work with most new model Hondas and Acuras made
since 2007. Our focus for the moment is for the Civic and will evaluate other models as
time permits.
I already have a reflash / GroupN ECU / FD2 Civic Type R ECU. Is there a
discount?
Yes. There is a rebate of $150. Here is how it works:

Purchase a FlashPro at the retail price.

Install FlashPro Manager 1.1.0.5 or newer.

Lock and register FlashPro.

Press the button request rebate

If your ECU qualifies Hondata will be notified and will send you a rebate check.

The process is explained in detail here


The rebate applies to:

Civic Si reflashes

Civic Si reflashes that have been returned to stock

Civic Si reflashed ECUs that purchased Flashpro without sending their ECU for a
discount

CT Supercharger stage 1 reflashes*

AJ turbo reflashes

Group N ECUs

Civic Type R ECUs

The rebate does not apply to CT Stage 2 Supercharger customers affected by the cruise control or reverse
lockout issue. Hondata is dealing directly with this.

How does the FlashPro work with my FN2 GroupN ECU / FD2 Civic Type R
ECU
The FlashPro will lock to and work with the FN2 GroupN / FD2 Type R ECUs perfectly.
However if you unlock the FlashPro for sale and return to stock the GroupN ECU will be

returned to a stock US Civic Si ECU. In this state it will not work in the Euro and Japanese
Type R Civics.
How does it compare to KPro?
KPro is a completely different product. It was created for the 02-04 RSX style ECU. It will
only work on that type of ECU with the exact same Oki processor. Honda has changed
the architecture of the ECU, including ECU architecture, processor and encapsulation, so
that there is no way the KPro can be made to work on any other ECU.
K-Pro requires the ECU be sent to a Hondata for the installation of the K-Pro
daughterboard. By comparison, new FlashPro owners need never remove the ECU from
their car.
Because FlashPro is a different product from KPro, it has different features. Not all
features implemented in KPro are possible with FlashPro. We will try to develop more
popular features such as nitrous control as we can.
In the meantime, if you run nitrous, you will be able to run a calibration that is far safer
and make more power than you would with a stock ECU.
What do FlashPro owners think?
We got an improvement of +85% on peak power/torque with an astounding
improvement of over +100% in power/torque - Mo Choudhury, Swift Racing
technologies
I don't think you truly understand the greatness that is the Hondata FlashPro until
you've tried boosting without it. The car drives BETTER than my friends Mazdaspeed6 Soxfan143
I am so exhilarated at the moment. For those of you who have been on the sidelines
deciding if you should do it or not, DO IT! Do it NOW! What are you waiting for? NitrousG35
My car feels like it just lost the flu. - UnlimitedSi
Car feels amazing... someone mentioned that it felt like the car didn't have the flu
anymore. I'd say it's more like the black plague. - SIporfavo

The car drives soooooooo smooooooth. Thanks Hondata for saving my baby. ryanmcm83

Questions and Answers
- Are there base calibrations?
Yes, for all common part combinations, plus Greddy turbo, JR and CT superchargers.

- Does it fix the rev hang?


Yes. The rev hang is the result of the injectors continuing to provide fuel for a period of
time after the throttle is closed. This time is reduced by the calibrations provided with
the FlashPro and the revs drop much sooner after throttle liftoff.

- Can it eliminate the second o2 sensor?


Yes. The secondary oxygen sensor is used to monitor the catalytic converter efficiency
and assist with closed loop operation. For off road racing use in which a catalytic
converter is not desirable, the secondary oxygen sensor can be disabled using the
FlashProManager software without any negative affect on the tuning or operation of the
car.

- Do I need dyno tuning?


It shouldn't be necessary for common part combinations (intake, exhaust), but you still
have the option of custom tuning if you wish to get a little more. Camshafts and race
headers probably will need tuning to get the most of the them - it will depend on the
manufacturer.

- Can I get rid of the AFM?


You can switch to a MAP based calibration (recommended for forced induction and/or
cams). You need to still physically retain the AFM because it also contains the IAT sensor

- What about smog with a MAP calibration?


According to US and CA law the FlashPro is for off road use only. However, if you did
smog with you would find the readiness codes supported and complete as long as your
emissions systems are intact and working.

- Will this work on R18s or automatics?


Initially the FlashPro is for the US/Canada Si and Euro/Asia CTR. ECU part numbers are

listed on our website.

- Will this work on more than one vehicle?


The FlashPro is locked to one vehicle. It can be unlocked and transferred to another
vehicle by returning the ECU to stock.

- Can I share the calibrations I make for my car?


Yes.

- Do I need the laptop in the vehicle to reflash the ECU?


No. The FlashPro can upload either with or without a laptop.

- Is there a VTEC window?


Yes. This means that VTEC will operate based on rpm and engine load. For example, the
supercharger reflashes have a VTEC window from 3200 rpm - 6000 rpm. At full throttle,
VTEC operates at 3200 rpm. At light throttle, VTEC operates at 6000 rpm, and for load
between full and light the VTEC will shift between 3200 rpm and 6000 rpm.

- So does that mean 1 unit Hondata FlashPro can only work with one ecu or car
only? Which mean I can't buy one FlashPro and use it together with a few of my
buddies Civics?
One ECU and vehicle at a time. You can unlock the FlashPro by returning the ECU to
stock, and then transfer to another vehicle.

- Any option of immobilizer control?


The immobilizer can not be disabled. We've implemented a number of features designed
to protect the owner of the vehicle from theft, and one of these is not to allow the
immobilizer to be disabled. This is going to be much less of an issue than previous
products because the ECU does not need to be removed / swapped.

- 90 sec programming - does that mean it can't do real time tuning?


Correct. In any case, if you are tuning a vehicle, you need to wait longer than 90 seconds
between dyno runs in order to maintain consistency between runs. If you think you could
set the dyno up as constant rpm or load, and then tune each cell in each table, this type
of tuning does not work because the engine temperature and therefore output changes
fairly rapidly, prohibiting this type of tuning.

- If the ECU had been reflashed by another maker, can FlashPro still work?

Probably - we could tell you based off the ECU part & serial numbers plus the calibration
ID. When you unlock the FlashPro it will only be reflashed back to a stock calibration.

-Will this support a 64-Bit Windows Vista?


Yes.

- Can it control nitrous?


No. However, you can at least control the ignition timing to make nitrous safer.

- Will dealers need a software license?


No. Every FlashPro will come with the full tuning software FlashProManager.
- Do I need to send my ECU to Hondata?
No. Your ECU does not need to be modified for FlashPro.
