Honda Civic Type R | FK8 | Tuning Packages
Honda ECUs tend to be table driven - for example, in order to work out the throttle plate angle the Honda ECU typically looks up a table based on engine speed and throttle pedal angle to find the target throttle plate angle. Bosch ECUs use a mathematical model of the engine to find target values for most outputs.
Typically the Bosch ECU will start with a desired wheel torque and calculate the required manifold pressure to achieve that force. For the same example as the Honda ECU the Bosch ECU will work out the engine torque necessary, then the cylinder filling necessary modified by the current ignition timing, lambda, accessory load etc and from that calculate the necessary manifold pressure. From the manifold pressure the Bosch will then calculate the throttle angle and also the boost pressure if necessary to achieve the cylinder filling.
Make sure that there is enough air flow over the intercooler, otherwise ECT will be high, boost will be high, but power lower than expected. As a guide the IAT temperature at the end of a dyno run should be no more than 45F higher than ambient temperature. Note that this must be done each time the ignition is switched on. Bosch cam angles are relative to a central zero position.

The cam overlap and phase is used to help turbo spool up. A negative value indicates advance, a positive value indicates retard, for both intake and exhaust camshafts. VTEC is exhaust only and controls the exhaust back pressure, which also affects the turbo. VTEC is switched based on rpm and air charge. VTEC is off at idle, on at cruise, off when the turbo is spooling and on at high load.
After reflashing the lambda will take around 2 km and 2. On a dyno it is best to run the vehicle until the lambda starts to read, otherwise the engine may run richer or leaner than intended. After replacing the ECU or reflashing it is best to start the TPMS recalibration otherwise a low tire pressure error may occur after a few miles. The short and long term fuel trims do not behave the same way as Honda ECUs.
Both act as short term trims. Do not be alarmed when the long term trim changes quickly. The Bosch ECU will use 'air charge' as an index in preference to manifold pressure. Target lambda. Throttle Tables. There are target torque tables for each gear and each mode comfort, sport and R. All other things being equal, simply increasing the torque values in these tables will generate more power. Torque Limit. This table limits the overall engine torque. It is best not to modify this table because the feedback loop is long and can led to oscillations.
Rev limits used multiple tables with indexes such as gear, speed and temperature. The actual ignition timing is interpolated between the four tables using the actual cam angles. The Bosch ECU stores ignition values in units of 0. You cannot make a change to the ignition table value smaller than 0.
There are cam angle VTC tables for the intake and exhaust cams for normal operation, cold engine operation and turbo 'spool' operation.The Honda FK8 Type R intake is the result of extensive design iteration through dyno testing and flow analysis. It was developed to achieve two objectives — 1 Maintain low inlet temperatures.
The first objective was met by enclosing the filter inside a carbon airbox and using the stock seal against the hood to block out the heat soak from the engine. Since the intake sits directly behind the radiator it is crucial that the filter is not exposed which would result in a loss of power through high IAT. The second objective was met by removing the flexible tubing and optimising the inlet path with a Venturi stack connected directly to the filter. Furthermore, we added a second inlet to the airbox with a scoop pulling in air from the inner wing area.
This almost doubles the total cross sectional area through which the turbo can draw from as compared with the single entry on the stock system.
Our carbon airbox enclosure has been designed to maximise the use of the available volume and block all sources of heat. The resulting performance gains and aesthetics are industry leading for the FK8 Type R.
Download Installation Guide. Main menu. The demand from the turbo results in this opening becoming a restriction. However, simply opening the filter inside the engine bay is detrimental since the filter position is directly behind the radiator and once the engine warms up - the filter will become quickly saturated with heat. This coupled with our Venturi Filter stack for smooth flow results in an immediate gain across the entire RPM range of hp.
The dyno graph below shows the comparison between the stock airbox and the Eventuri intake system on a standard car with standard map and exhaust. Dyno runs were done back to back on the same day and with the hood closed. Testing was conducted on the same stretch of road - again on the same day to keep variables minimum.
The Eventuri FK8 Type R intake system consists of a number of components engineered to perform a specific purpose and fabricated to the highest of standards. It shields the filter from the multiple sources of heat in the engine bay. The most direct source is the radiator and fan which pushes a stream of hot air directly into the intake area. The other significant heat sources are the turbo and downpipe which sit next to the intake area and once the engine is up to operating temperatures, the engine bay becomes quickly heat soaked.
All these heat sources require a complete airbox system as shielding - a simple cone and heat shield just cannot do the same job. During development we tested open filters with heat shielding and the inlet temperatures increased significantly causing a loss of power.With over 10 years experience and extensive knowledge in race prepping cars, EVS Tuning has released aero parts that are both form and function. We have developed a steering wheel controls solution that will fit most popular aftermarket race steering wheels with a Nardi or MOMO bolt pattern.
Controls could be used for a number of functions, from scramble boost, nitrous, data logging or radio controls to OE cruise control functions. Our adapter bolts under the front crash beam directly under the crash beam. The OE tow hook or any aftermarket tow hook with the same thread pitch and length can be used.
The built in louvers reduce lift and create downforce by relieving unwanted pressure differentials. Pressure differentials can occur anywhere that a fluid flow is allowed to enter an area that is difficult to exit.

Happy days indeed! I was blown away when I heard this news. Really awesome that Hondata was able to figure this out. But we need took off the ECU and send to Hondata for cracking I guess bye-bye dealerships. I will probably get this done after the factory warranty expires. Dragnet Senior Member.

LOL i'm thinking assuming here guys its gonna be in the 1k range but super worth it. So what kind of options will this potentially give us? SBD47 Senior Member. Dragnet said:. What do you mean by bye bye dealerships? SBD47 said:.
Consider the warranty on your engine gone! Ah ok. I know what you mean now. So if we are able to push another 50 to hp out of this car what do you guys think it'll do to the reliability? Or would a lot of parts need to be changed out with the tune?Although the FK8 Civic Type R is the most powerful front-wheel-drive production car ever and has a phenomenal chassis, there is always room for improvement.
Many factory components are heavy and hold the engine back. A full turbo-back exhaust is a great way to shed some weight, add some power and add some sound to your FK8 Type R, of course, like every Armytrix exhaust system, this one for the FK8 Type R will include our world famous Valvetronic system. The Valvetronic system allows you to change the tone of your exhaust on the fly quickly. In the case of the Civic Type R, with the valves closed it has a quiet but sporty sound and with the valves open it sounds incredible!
As an Armytrix fan, customer, or potential customer, you have likely heard of Valvetronic. It's one of the prominent selling features of Armytrix exhaust systems and has shifted the entire exhaust industry towards adopting similar technology in all exhaust systems. The whole point of the Valvetronic system is to give you an option for how loud you want your car to be. If you leave early in the morning for work, you probably don't want your car to be excessively loud, as it will upset your neighbors.
Once you're out on the open road or shredding a canyon road, you want to hear those awesome noises your car makes. The Valvetronic system allows you to switch between being quiet and being loud with the push of a button via the included remote or through the smartphone application; this works by tapping into a vacuum source on your engine and connecting it to the control module.
When you press the button on the remote or smartphone application, you are communicating with the OBDII module via Bluetooth. This OBDII module tells the exhaust valve module to allow the engine vacuum to open or close the exhaust valve. Aside from getting a brutal sound with the Valvetronic system open, you can also gain power, especially if your car is turbocharged. Depending on the car, modifications, and tune you have, the valve being open will also the exhaust gas to flow more freely, as it does not have to pass through any muffler.
If your vehicle is turbocharged, you may see a slight increase in boost pressure depending if you are running an open or closed boost cycle, resulting in more horsepower. The rpm value in Auto mode can be set to open valves.
