It is difficult to generate a consistent dyno graph for the CVT Accord, especially at lower RPMs. Above 6200 RPM ignition timing is lowered to reduce engine power for the next gearshift.

What if you have modifications?
The reflash has been tested with an Injen intake and works well. This combination gives 15 lb-ft tq and 13hp. The Hondata reflash will work with any well designed intake.
The Hondata reflash will also work well with any exhaust system modifications.
Can I use this reflash with high octane fuel.
Yes. Although this reflash was tuned with regular gasoline, using a higher octane fuel will increase the power and torque. The reflash works very well with low or high octane fuel.
Some 2002 onwards and all 2006 onwards ECUs are flash programmable. The ECU can be repeatedly reprogrammed without removing or replacing and internal components.
How do you get your ECU reflashed?
- Fill out this form
- Contact your dealer. All sales are made through Hondata dealers.
- Your dealer or you will need to remove and send your ECU, immobilizer and key to Hondata.
Do I need to send the key & immobilizer?
Only for 2002-2006 RSX and 2002-2005 Civic Si reflashes. All other reflashes do not need to send a key or immobilizer. Flashing the ECU does not in any way alter the immobilizer operation.
How long does it take?
The ECU will be reprogrammed and shipped out the same day it is received. Shipping in the continental USA is FEDEX next day.
Will this affect the fuel economy?
Assuming you drive the vehicle in the same way, no. Fueling at cruise is the same as stock.
Will this affect the engine life?
Provided your engine is maintained correctly this modification should not affect the engine's life.
Will this affect the warranty?
It should not.
Federal law sets forth requirements for warranties and contains a number of provisions to prevent vehicle manufacturers, dealers and others from unjustly denying warranty coverage. With regard to aftermarket parts, the gist of the law is that warranty coverage cannot be denied simply because such parts are present on the vehicle, or have been used. (see Federal Warranty Laws for details). The warranty coverage can be denied only if the aftermarket part caused the malfunction or damage for which warranty coverage is sought.
If a dealership denies warranty coverage (more details here) , they should be willing to do so in writing. Have the dealer describe the failure which is causing your problem AND how the dealer believes the aftermarket product installed is responsible for the problem. Keep an accurate log of all contacts and correspondence in addressing the warranty denial. Hondata will provide any technical information the dealership requires.
With any increase in rev limit there is an increased risk of valve damage. To minimize your risk use the Hondata program with the stock rev limit. All reports of valve damage we have heard have been as a result of miss-shift. The Type S valve springs are good. We have tested a Type S with an 8900 rev limit in a press test vehicle for several months with no problems.
Will any settings be lost?
Your ECU will lose some idle settings and fuel trim when it is unplugged. It will relearn idle automatically if you leave it idling for 10 minutes. As you drive the car it will relearn fuel trim values in a matter of minutes.
Can a Honda/Acura dealer erase this program?
Only if another Honda/Acura update is released could a dealer erase your existing program. If Honda/Acura comes out with an upgrade you are not obliged to have it installed. If you do not wish to have the dealer program installed there is a wire you can disconnect or cut, to prevent reprogramming. The charge for restoring an erased program is $75 (cashiers check or money order) shipping included. You can also remove pin 7 from the OBD2 port to keep the dealer from reflashing your ecu (DO NOT CUT THIS WIRE).
What about bolt ons?
Most programs have been tested to work well with a variety of intakes and exhausts. No retuning is necessary after an intake is added. Some programs as tuned specifically for an intake or exhaust, and if so, will mention this in the reflash notes.
If you currently run nitrous, these programs will probably not be suitable due to the ignition advance used. If you want to use nitrous and this program now, you must install a nitrous system that retards ignition.
What about turbo-charging and super-charging?
What octane is recommended?
For high compression engines (K20A2, K20Z1, K20Z3, K24Z7) 91 octane fuel or better is recommended. For all other engines there are gains from using higher octant fuel, as the ECU will automatically advance the ignition timing if no knock is detected.
