SUPERCHARGED… HONDA CIVIC TYPE R

This Honda Civic Type R is the pride and joy of the owner Mark. We previously remapped it using Hondata in 2015 and the usually 198bhp Honda made 222bhp on the rolling road 🙂

Now Mark got used to power and started looking for ways to give his car more horses under the bonnet. After a lot of research Mark decided on a Tts performance tuning supercharger kit. The order was made and the wait for the kit started.

Mark arrived at the workshop with two big boxes and his car, leaving us to install the kit with a bit of fabrication before the car headed over to the rolling road.

Now pulling 337bhp, this Honda Civic Type R is mental to drive 😍

Honda Civic Type R Custom Remap

Honda Civic Type R

Today we had a Honda Civic Type R on the rolling road for a custom remap using Hondata FlashPro. Fitted with an induction kit and a 3 inch cat back system, it made 204bhp with 152ft/lb torque on the health check run. We always do a beginning run to see what power the car is making before we do any custom remapping.

The custom remap written and the car tested on the rolling road, the next step was test drive on the road with the customer.

Customer feedback:

Had car into ADE Tuning today for custom Remap currently have HKS RSK, Tdi North Custom 3″ Catback & Hondata Flashpro car made 222.8bhp and 173.1ft-lb I know they are only numbers but out on the road it’s like a new car drives superb vtec now kicks in at 4500rpm and redline is now 8600 what a transformation thanks Guys at ADE Tuning really made up with the results.

So what is Hondata?

Hondata modifies the standard Honda engine computer (ECU), adding features and expanding the capabilities of the ECU (e.g. for forced induction). These modifications are available either as a reflash, or a fully tunable system. Reflashes involve the ECU being sent to Hondata; programmable system require the ECU to be modified for pre-2006 vehicles, or an external programming interface for 2006 and later vehicles.

CNC HEADS CHAMPIONSHIPS

CNC Heads Championship racing at Oulton Park

This weekend our head technician, Chris was competing in the CNC Heads sports and saloon championship down at Oulton Park. It’s not the first time that Chris has raced in this championship and last time he brought home a trophy for coming first in his class in his mk3 Ford Escort. This time he was competing in a Honda Civic Type R which his very kind friend Gareth had leant him. In the few weeks leading up to the race many hours where spent getting the Honda race spec ready. The Civic was even treated to a polish by Rachael, who claims that she increased the bhp by at least 10bhp 😉

Chris qualified 3rd in his class of 7 with most cars having a decent power edge on him.

In the first race he finished in 3rd even though he was locking up in every braking zone due to us taking the ABS out.

In his second race he started in 4th position, soon making his way into 3rd position and into a battle with 2nd place. It was looking like he was going to take the place, when unfortunately with about 3 laps to go the front 2 tyres de-laminated and left him unable to fight for position. Leaving him lame horse to the guys behind and he finished the race in 5th position.

Honda Civic Type R – Hondata K100

Watch and listen to the Honda Civic Type R on the rolling road after being custom remapped by ADE Tuning using Hondata K100.

After being modified with a cone filter and decat the customer brought their Honda Civic Type R to us be custom remapped. Using the K100 we wrote a map to suit the modifications and we produced a more powerful and drivable car.

The system consists of additional components which are added to the standard ECU to allow the ECU to use a Hondata program (this modification is normally done by a dealer). An interface box is then connected to the ECU which contains circuitry for data logging, stores rev limits and interfaces to switches in the vehicle. Optionally a clutch switch,push button and data logging cable may be installed. Collectively all this is known as a Hondata system.

Hondata – Honda Civic Type R

Hondata Honda Civic Type R ADE Tuning

Over the last week we have been custom remapping a Honda Civic Type R. Now most vehicle that we custom remap are mapped by connecting to the OBD port or by removing the ECU and reading the cars files on the bench. But the Honda is a different kettle of fish and on some models we can’t do that so we have to use Hondata.

A Hondata system consists of additional components which are added to the standard ECU to allow the ECU to use a Hondata program (this modification is normally done by a dealer). An interface box is then connected to the ECU which contains circuitry for data logging, stores rev limits and interfaces to switches in the vehicle. Optionally a clutch switch, push button and data logging cable may be installed. Collectively all this is known as a Hondata system.

Hondata systems modify the standard Honda engine computers (ECUs), adding features and expanding the capabilities of the stock ECU.

So now we know the basics around Hondata 🙂

Remap

With the Civic being run on the dyno whilst we custom remap the ECU we are able to data log the fuelling, revs etc. This allows us to improve the performance in the safety of the workshop. With the remap written and tested on the rolling road we take the Type R out for a road test before handing the car over to the customer for their own test drive.

With the simple modifications of a cone air filter and decat we where able to achieve these fantastic results and the feedback from the customer was brilliant.
