Hello i have a 2007 civic type r and was looking at getting a milltek exhaust as i have heard and read reveiws saying there good. Then i got told about getting it remapped or replace the throttle body to. Altho the guy that got his car remapped had a 330 bmw. Ive tryed researching it but im a bit confused i dont realy know much about these things and just wanted a bit of advice. I dont want to mega over modyfy my car i just wanted it to have a bit more power and sound cooler. Any advice would be much aprecated.

To put any kind of map on your car you need the Hondata FlashPRO, this device is required by tuners to remap the ECU in order to obtain more power and get the best out of your mods! It comes with a standard "Group N" map which you can load on yourself however I would advise getting it properly mapped by a professional to get maximum performance! TDI North & South have a fantastic reputation, I myself have been to TDI North and received an excellent service.

The FlashPRO is £500 odd and a map will set you back around 2-300, and good choice with the milltek it's the system I have, superb! ;)

Before you get a miltek find a car that has one to see if you like the noise on a day to day drive.

HKS rsk is another option for sound, its an induction kit that is very loud in vtec and relatively quiet the rest of the time.

Yeh mate car drives far far better, lowers cam changeover so that vtec will be around 4000rpm and gives a lot more power lower down the rev range, far more drivability than before! :)

FlashPRO and FRS (Fast Road Set-up) are the 2 best mods for the Type R.

I have flashpro, FRS, milltek and the HKS RSK and alot of people say the car is very loud but only in vtec.. the rest of the time it gives a nice groan.

Im the type of person that listens to fairly loud boom boom music so I cannot really comment on 70mph drone.

If you are not far from TDi Noth or south pop in and im sure they will give you excellent advice.

I myself drove a 1500mile round trip in 3 days to visit TDi North and IMO well worth the drive. completly changed the car and the guys at North are really friendly!

Sorry that's not strictly true. Yes the FlashPRO is one option, but some tuners now have new hardware which allow them to tune the stock ECU (although it still involves removing the ECU and splitting it).

Drop Elite a line on [email protected] for more info, they've done a few this year already.

If we're going down that route there are plenty of options to choose from all the way from fuel and ignition controllers to standalone ECUs, but the preferred tried and tested method for tuning the FN2 Type R is the Hondata Flashpro.

It's the neatest way to reflash the OEM ECU, offers all the functionality a decent tuner will need to correctly set-up your engine fuelling, ignition, cam angles etc. and is also the easiest for the end user to reset the calibration to standard when selling on the Flashpro module and/or car.

Hondata have been making tuning modules for K20 engines for donkeys, but have made a real step forward in re-flashing the standard ECU with the Flashpro module.

Yes mate aware of all that. I was simply pointing out that it's not the only option.
Just didn't think it sounded like a neat or viable option to be honest. No offence meant to you bud, but I'd rather just plug something into the ODBC port than, removing and splitting the ECU.

Elite remaps don't list the Type R on their site as a car they remap, it looks like they specialise on diesels, so didn't even know it was an option: Eliteremaps - Honda Remapping

I'm all for new tuners and new ways of doing things, just Elite Remaps just seemed a bit of left field to me.

They don't list every car they can tune buddy, that's what the enquiry button is for ;)
If i go to a website looking for something and they dont list it..... I move on to another site.
The enquiry button 100% wont get used.

Just some food for thought :D
