Review of FlashPro

I wanted to start a thread on my experience with flashpro and e-tuning.

Car setup:
2009 Si 16k Miles
Mods:
Fujita SRI (I live in FL tons of rain)

HFP suspension and brakes
Star Spec tires 225/40/17

I order my flashpro from E-Tunez with ultimate package. I selected Steve as my tuner because of various emails and his awesome customer services.

I received my flashpro last night minus stupid Fedex not leaving it at my door.

Once i got the package I ripped open box and hooked up flashpro to my laptop in fedex parking lot.
I uploaded MAP base Fujita SRI configure and was done in about 60 secs.
Started car up and off i went. I was datalogging on the way home.
The car feels different. No rev hang. Pulls like crazy between 3k-5k. It is a new car.
I have not received my first custom tune as i sent off my 3 datalogs(Idle, 3rd gear pull and daily driving) this morning.

So far flashpro is best mod for my money period.

I will update thread as custom tunes are applied.

PS datalogging this weekend may be tough as new Fast Five comes out and cops will be in full force.

Update:
Damn that was fast services. Emailed off my logs in morning and at night I had a new configuration
Uploaded Config to car and will datalog a 30 minute drive and 3rd gear pull.

Hints: When submitting a log give as much info as you can to tuner like gas used, temp, elevation. I believe it makes things easier.

I was able to datalog my car with the new config feels better. I know it is running rich but I think that will be worked out.

Well did some datalogging and the more aggressive cams rock but i get knock on upper RPM in 3rd.
I have total faith that Steve will fix but hands down Flashpro and E-Tunez was best mod for my money.

Are you verifying knock based on knock retard, knock counts or through hearing?

Because if it's through hearing... you're unequivocally not hearing knock. If it's through knock retard, the KIL tables are lying, and if it's through knock counts, do they count up fast in succession, and if so, what is your ignition timing in that area where it "knocks"

Luckily knock counts when you're N/A are totally not dangerous unless it's extreme (bursts of knock counts at high load going up into the 1000's

Just sayin, because a lot of people think their engine is knocking to pieces and going to explode.

So I received my 4th Revision and did not have time to post about it before I received my 5th Revision and a nice dyno graph.
Tunning the car thru flashpro is best mod every.
I am happy with whp.
Also the tempature was about 88F, and my IAT was 123F.

That's not 198 whp. That's about 180 whp. That high spike at the end is some sort of anomaly.

Flashpro really doesn't gain but a few horsepower on a stock car. It does gain a ton of driving feel though. It drives so much better than the stock tune.

+1

I only have the Flashpro for about 2-3 days, but I already like it a lot more than the stock setup. Nothing is "night and day" different, but there are numerous "little" things that I like better, from reduced rev hang (still there, but less), to having better throttle response on the highway (around 70 on 6th gear). And I am sure once I do the etune with the intake/exhaust, it will get a little bit better/smoother.

At lest for me, with the car 100% stock, even the base map from Hondata feels a little bit better than the OEM calibration. Now that I am doing a few bolt-on mods, and then an e-tune, the FP will be able to maximize and help fine tune these mods for "my" engine/setup.

Does FP void a warranty? I got a new '11 si and don't wanna void my warranty, but want FP.

Thanks for the input.

Recently got some bolt ons installed. Waiting to purchase my FP and get my car tuned by Steve as well. By reading your reviews, seems like everything is going great.. AWESOME!
