TC maximum pressure ratio

Is anyone having trouble hitting boost control targets? I'm unable to achieve higher than 20psi under any circumstance at 3200 feet. It sure feels like I've maxed of the factory turbo. The SI engine in factory form peaks out at 17-18psi which seems about right for this elevation. I've tried the +6,+...

Re: High flow catalytic converters?

That's about what I expected. I have no desire to completely alter the proper function of any readiness status. That being said, high flow cats aren't as efficient and running one sounds like a crap shoot.

Re: High flow catalytic converters?

I'm sure I can run one and it will make a difference as is. My concerns are with catalyst codes, Readiness completion, 02 Delay adjustments. I've noticed there is a "Disable downstream o2" check box but surely its not that simple. I'm still learning about this ECU but I'm also aware that some engine...

Re: Atmospheric BOV

Atmospheric blow off valves cannot be used for proper engine operation. While I do enjoy that silly worthless sound, here are some screen shots of what it does to your fuel trims and why it's just not worth it 2017 SI running a BPV 2017 SI without BOV.jpg 2017 SI with any BOV = Uncontrolled rich mom...

Safe Air/Fuel ratios

Being a newly designed engine there isn't much out there about about the limitations of the factory pistons I have noticed that factory is 10.5 at times and the base maps are using 11.2. Running 11.2-11.5 would have been my guess for safe running A/F under load. Is 11.2 conservative? Does anyone hav...

Throttle Response

I don't see many adjustments for throttle control available.

Has there been inaccessible background changes made to the throttle response?

High flow catalytic converters?

Installing high flow catalytic converters is something I usually do when building a better performing engine. Should this be avoided until further development of the Hondata software for the 1.5? I'm interested in the ability to pump more air without having to take the turbo to the edge of its capab...

2017 Civic SI knock Retard

So I've just got a FlashPro for my 2017 SI and was doing a bit of logging before any real tuning just to get the feel for normality. I have noticed that I get lots of "Knock Retard" blips from 5 to 6 degree. I have assumed that this knock is a sensitivity issue or maybe even an anticipation of knock...
