Supported bolt ons for CARB Tune?

Post by lieche » Mon May 13, 2019 4:37 pm

Hi guys/gals,

Ill be pulling the trigger on a tune for my 18 EX hatch soon and I looked around but didn't find a clear answer. Maybe I missed it, so sorry if this gets asked a lot.

I do not initially plan on going crazy with the car, but maybe down the line I'd like to upgrade the intercooler / intake / and maybe exhaust.

Does the CARB version support basic bolt ons or would I need the race version / would the bolt ons require a custom tune with the race version?

If the CARB version does support any basic bolt ons, which ones have supported premade tunes? If there's a link I missed that supports this info, please post it??

Thank you!

The CARB version only supports CARB certified parts which will not alter the emissions of the vehicle. If you want full tunability for a race car that is never driven on public roads then you would need the race version.

If only CARB approved bolt ons are used, then they cannot alter emissions and thus don't need tuning. So you don't need calibrations for bolt ons on the CARB FlashPro.
