ECU reflashed or not?

Post by Italian33 » Tue Sep 27, 2016 7:13 am

Hi Hondata,

I recently came across a private seller who is selling there ECU, Immobilizer and Key that is "reflashed" all together from you guys.

Here is the part number and serial number for verification.

Part #: 37820-PRB-A13
Serial #: 1589-302656

1. I need to know is this ECU reflashed or not

2. Is this ECU reflashed with the race header program?

Thanks again and looking forward to your response.

-Tim

Thank you for the reply Hondata.

I have a few more questions if you don't mind.

1. If I run this race header re-flash program with the CAI and Hondata IMG only (excluding race header) is it ok to drive the car at all until my race header comes back from being coated? Looking to break-in my new suspension.

2. If it is ok to drive the car like this, can any wide open throttle driving be done without harm to the motor or what kind of driving is acceptable?

3. Also would gas mileage or running too rich be a problem at partial or WOT?

I do not know how (Lean or Rich)(Retarded or Advanced) this reflash changes the stock map, answering these questions above would logistically help me in time management.

Thanks again Hondata, these are my last questions for this thread.

It is not possible to answer those questions as headers vary a lot. Running at light and medium load will not do any harm.
