Check ECU Compatibility
To ensure that you order the correct FlashPro we recommend that you check your ECU is supported.
The ECU part number is located on the ECU. You may need to remove a plastic cover in order to see the sticker containing the part number.

What sort of improvements can I expect if my car is modified?
This RDX had the second catalytic converter removed, was fitted with a custom 3" exhaust, an intake and tuned. Gains were in the order of 47 lb-ft torque and 47 hp.
What sort of improvements can I expect if my car is stock?
This stock 07 Acura RDX gained 26 hp solely from FlashPro tuning. This is the tuning previously used in the RDX reflash and is now included as a base calibration. Gains were made from altering the boost, advancing the ignition, and leaning the mixture.
How much can I increase the boost?
The RDX MAP sensor will read up to 26 psi of boost but no testing was done above 15 psi.
We raised midrange boost on our test RDX from 14-15 psi. Boost at peak RPM was raised from 8 to 12 psi. At 12 psi the stock injectors were very close to maximum duty cycle. More boost requires larger injectors. Base calibrations are provided for 600 and 800cc injectors. Boost is also limited by fuel octane. All tests were done with California 91 octane.

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.
One of the latest features added to FlashPro, live tuning gives you the ability to tune your Honda or Acura on the fly without switching off the engine. Live tuning simplifies part throttle tuning and significantly reduces the time and cost of tuning your car.
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 FlashPro uses software called FlashProManager for tuning & datalogging.
Online help is available.
How do I tell if my FlashPro supports Bluetooth?
From July 2013 some FlashPros shipped from Hondata including Bluetooth.
From Jan 1 2014, all FlashPros shipped from Hondata include Bluetooth.
FlashPros sold before the dates in the table below do not support Bluetooth. To confirm if your FlashPro supports Bluetooth follow this procedure:
- Launch FlashPro Manager
- Plug in the FlashPro to your USB port.
- Press the FlashPro button, tab, then hardware.
- If Bluetooth is present, Yes will be indicated.
- If you do not see 'Bluetooth present' at all, then you are using an older version of FlashProManager and need to update. This does not mean that you don't have a FlashPro with a Bluetooth radio.
- If 'Bluetooth present' is No, your FlashPro does not have Bluetooth. You may upgrade your FlashPro is you wish.

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. - SIporfavor
The car drives soooooooo smooooooth. Thanks Hondata for saving my baby. - ryanmcm83
What is a CARB FlashPro?
A CARB FlashPro is a FlashPro which only allows uploads from calibrations which are determined to not alter the any emissions related parameters in the ECU.
What does CARB stand for?
Not carburetor. 'CARB' is the common term for the California Air Resources Board, who are responsible for determining if calibrations could affect emissions.
Why should I use the CARB FlashPro?
Within the USA you must use the CARB FlashPro for any emissions controlled vehicle.
But I don't live in California / my state does not do emissions tests.
It does not matter - the concept of '49 state legal' is not longer valid. Under the federal Clean Air Act administered by the EPA it is not legal to change any emissions equipment (including the ECU) on any emissions controlled vehicle. There is no mechanism to prove to the EPA that an ECU modification does not affect emissions, but the EPA will accept the California Air Resources Board approval. Hence California legal modifications are also federally legal.
What if I sell by vehicle and wish to use the FlashPro on a competition vehicle?
The CARB FlashPro cannot be changed into a Race FlashPro. Sell the CARB FlashPro and purchase a Race FlashPro.
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.
Do I need the laptop in the vehicle to reflash the ECU?
No. The FlashPro can upload either with or without a laptop.
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.
I am considering purchasing a used FlashPro. What do I need to do to check?
The FlashPro must be unlocked by the seller. Have the seller send you this screenshot which shows the serial number password and lock status. Hondata does not unlock FlashPros. The reason for this policy is to prevent both fraud (against us) and theft (against you).
