How to download the calibration from the ECU --> Flashpro?

Post by transam617 » Fri Nov 22, 2013 12:14 pm

I just purchased a flashpro for my 2008 civic si.

Before lock it to my ECU and begin uploading new calibrations I would like to know how to download and view the stock calibration present in the ECU from the factory.

I searched the help file and couldnt find any mention of downloading the ECU's stock data through the flashpro.

I have read about the option to 'return ECU to stock', however I am unsure if this will upload the exact calibration that is in my ECU now (from the factory). Does 'Return ECU To Stock' simply load a hondata 'equivalent' image or is it an original Honda Image? Does the Flashpro (when locked to my ECU) actually save the factory image from my ECU, or does it have a preloaded hondata (or Honda) image from a specific model/year of si? The reason I ask this is because of the FAQ from your website where it says:

"How does the FlashPro work with my FN2 GroupN ECU / FD2 Civic Type R ECU

The FlashPro will lock to and work with the FN2 GroupN / FD2 Type R ECUs perfectly. However if you unlock the FlashPro for sale and return to stock the GroupN ECU will be returned to a stock US Civic Si ECU. In this state it will not work in the Euro and Japanese Type R Civics."


If this is the way flashpro works then that implys that flashpro does not save the ECU image present from the factory. Is this correct? If it is then I suppose the only way to truly return the factory image to the ECU would be to have someone with the honda dealer equipment load the specific image intended for that model/year of car?

Thanks for engineering a very nice product - I expect great things!
Just want a little more insight into the process.

When you return to stock it will put the factory calibration back on the ECU.

I figured I might get this type of single sentence response... If you could just elaborate a little.

Which factory calibration will it put back on the ECU? The one that is on there now (2008 USD Civic Si 2dr) or one for another model/year?

Also, can I view the factory Honda calibration in flashpro manager?

Thanks.

Great! That answers my first question.

Also, can I view the factory Honda calibration in flashpro manager?


Thanks again.

No you cannot, you can only view the stock equivalent.

Is it possible to retrieve my tune that isn't factory from the ecu to my flashpro? I bought the car and the vault password isn't available to me I was able to retrieve the ownership of the flashpro and registered it but accidentally removed the tune from the flashpro

No, the calibration can only be read from the FlashPro not from the ECU.
