I'd like to start a official thread to discuss Hondata Flash Pro for the 1.5-T.We can discuss the Hondata Flash and the Flash Pro tuner.
Hondata is pleased to announce a reflash for the 10th Gen Civic Turbo!
Available for Civic Coupe and Sedan equipped with the 1.5L turbo engine
Turbo spooled 500 rpm earlier
20-28 hp increase from 4500 rpm to 6000 rpm
4 to 6 psi boost increase from 3000 rpm to 6000 rpm
Fuel and ignition optimized
Partial throttle fuel economy unchanged
91 octane tuned
Ill just say that Vit e-tuned my 8th gen Civic SI with intake, Skunk2 header, and Skunk2 exhaust, and while the butt dyno thought it was faster, overall it drove better and I actually got better gas mileage than i did stock. Im excited to see what he can do with these cars. Im not building a world beater, but if a few bolt-ons and a tune can pump the power up a bit, I personally would be happy with that. Dont forget, 10-15 hp or 10-15 torque gain on these cars would feel significantly quicker than on a larger engine starting with more hpI'm an old guy .. have a average understanding of the mechanics and tuning of cars. I drove Rams Hemis and the Cummins 6.7l V6 since 2002 bought a Taco in 2015. You can get some more horse out of those with a tuner and maybe air kit and exhaust ..but only a few at best unless spending race car (truck) kind of money. That will also effect mileage ... more horse less mileage.
I guess my question is - what are can you really expect to get out of a 1.5l peanut ? ... even if turbo charged. Not bashing .. again just curious. If I'm looking for speed/sport Id go with at least a 6, most likely an 8. .. but it would be nice if these civics came in a small 6. Would be a rocket !
