Hondata Fuel System upgrade
Stig_JDM experience at Global Time Attack
The Hondata team did an amazing job installing the upgraded fuel system on my car in preparation for the Global Time Attack finals at Buttonwillow in November 2019. Since the car had already been used for 30+ track days with a Hondata FlashPro and would continue to be abused at the track, we decided to go with a conservative tune on 93 pump gas. With the upgraded system, the car went from 360whp to 400whp on stock turbo and basic bolt-ons (PRL Intercooler, Downpipe and Front Pipe + Remark Catback). Although we chose to be conservative and the power increase was just moderate, the additional torque/power translated into a mind blowing engine response and improved lap times at Buttonwillow by approximately 2s (a 2s improvement when you are running 1:54 lap times on a street Civic is A LOT!). Better yet, the fuel system ran flawlessly for the whole event with no check engine lights or going into limp mode. If you are familiar with the Civic Type R, you know how sensitive the stock ECU is and how it likes to throw codes. I'm looking forward to seeing this system being used widely with more aggressive tunes and upgraded turbos to explore the full potential of the system.
