Im having the same problems as well. I sold mine to some kid for $400. I feel like kicking myself in the head everytime i drive my car now. Ive sold so many parts from my car its not even funny. I still want the flashpro though because i still have high comp valve, headers and stage 2 comp clutch and ultralight flywheel. I really want to free up my acceleration. its a little rusty. i think i might get an intake or something soon. well see what happens. flashpro first. holla

What you think about Flashpro on a stock FG2? Im debating between coil over's for a drop or the power, but Im stock. I'm satisfied with the stock power but a lil more would be sweet

Get the flashpro it is worth it just using a basemap will increase ur overall happiness when DD, you will not see a power increase with flashpro but it will smooth out the power band, get rid of rev hang & lower vtec engagement point. I had flashpro for my stock car, it was great I miss it, but i sold it..

Flashpro was one of those mods I was not sure on, ended up getting it for the lower vtec point. Once you get it the car is like night and day, the more mods you add the more you will need a etune. Had my car tuned by vit and it runs like a dream now.

Post a 3rd gear pull datalog after so we can make sure you're good if you're not sure what to check yet.

just make sure you match injector size when picking a map. Other than that, try a few cals and pick which one needs less work if you're going to drive on it for a while.

It's fun. Don't be overwhelmed by the software either, watch the youtube videos on tuning basics to get a bit familiar. I was shocked at first, now I'm quite comfortable with the software, and my flashpro is always with me so I can work on my car.. shhhhh... at work... haha

and read up on how short term fuel trim works, if you decide to do some basic tuning yourself, strim will be your eye to what's going on.
