Well, it’s been a long time waiting for our 2008 Project Fit Sport, and with dreams of turbo whooshes, we’ve finally received our Hondata FlashPro. Our FlashPro is part number FP-FIT-US-120001, (yep number one baby!) and after our supporting turbo mods, we are ready to install the FlashPro and start tuning!
Newest changes to the FlashPro as it pertains to our Honda Fit are :
- Added support for the 2012 Civic Si, 2013 ILX, 2007-2008 Fit.
- [Traction Control] Firmware 6
- FlashPro firmware updated to version 47
- [Civic Si / Type R] Added learned fuel trim under closed loop parameters
After flashing the unit, we are ready for install and setup of the most basic parameters. I will outline a few of the settings we’ll be adjusting. As this Fit is still a daily driver, we’ll be aiming to retain it’s factory emissions and gas mileage without disrupting how the car drives or feels on the road.
To do this, we’ll be looking at tuning the Fit in closed loop mode while referencing the “closed loop target lambda” table in the FlashPro.
This controls the target lambda (air/fuel ratio) when the vehicle is running in closed loop. A combination of tables is used the set the target lambda, based on temperature and load.
Next up : Trying to squeeze as much power and torque from the engine stock as possible, before slapping on our turbo kit and going for broke.
