I installed a cold air intake from Fujita.
I have a question about a fault that comes on my ODO. (the fault is system check).

The fault is not always, it sometimes comes up when the engine is on and i am not driving (not touching the gas-pedal).I get only 700 - 800 rpm and it look i go to low in rpm.

When i go to my garage for reading the fault..the fault is "system to poor"
This i probably the fault of the mix of air and fuel..because the engine gets more air now.

does someone know a solution? i hope you'll understand the question..

I can not clear the fault bij my self, with the how to on this forum..

your car is running too lean, you need to get the car mapped or use flashpro and an air/fuel meter to get it right

I had the same situation when installed my CAI. Now You're running on MAF calibration and sensor from stock intake gets wrong data about air fuel ratio. That's why CAI can't work properly without FlashPRO, which deactivates sensor. Get FlashPRO, install MAP calibration ( like in EP3) and then everything gonna be fine- there won't be flatspots etc.
Cheers.

thanks for the info..
My next question is..Where can i get flashpro? Is it software? Is it available in belgium? And van i loafers it in mu car? Van my garage do it?

Thanks

Sorry for the spelling.. The 4th question was, how do i get the software in my car?

Sccal, don't believe what they tell you here !!!
If they would be right it would mean we all (including me) would see this fault just because it's freezing. Airintake is now freezing cold, but there's no errorcode and the stock ECU compensates this perfect.
Possible cause if this error came on just after installing CAI:
There's a false air intake AFTER the MAF-sensor so the engine get's air that was not measured.
Good luck and keep your head cool, not only your intake !

i-DSI: I can't understand Your opinion at all...:) Really, it isn't my vocabulary, just arguments. Could You explain where I made mistake? Maybe You know something I don't know.

Intake is very tough issue in FN2. If there's no FlashPRO in Your car, CAI doesn't work properly. AEM CAI is wider, there's more air and fuel, when You floor right pedal ECU starts to think because of wrong AFR and provides a flatspot.

FlashPRO is fully programmable device which helps to program car to mods which are already on board. You just plug in FlashPRO under steering wheel and upload remapped data to ECU.
CPL Racing are selling Hondata FlashPRO, google it and there is needed info. It costs about 500 pounds.
FlashPRO and CAI will completely transform CTR- better throttle response, lower VTEC and higer rev:)
I hope this site helps: hondata.com.
Cheers.

Hi Majkilipa,
This is why I think you're wrong:
- Kevin has a problem when idling, at that moment the error comes on. The effect of more air (colder air) can have no influence, as the throttle valve is almost completely closed at idle.
- FN2 has just as FK1, FK2,... the same method of measuring the airmass coming in: a MAF and a MAP sensor (airmass and pressure). Temp.sensor is integrated with LAFsensor. Give me please one good reason why these sensors would not be able to measure the amount of air coming in after modifying the intake. Take into account the narrowest point of the intake never changes: the throtlle valve. Only (!) at WOT there can be a very slight increase (a few %) of air coming in at a slightly decreased temp.
But everything is measured and by far into 'range' for the stock ECU.
You state his engine runs leaner. That's correct (the ECU tells so), but it's hard to accept for me the reason is another intake.
Reasons for showing this errorcode can be:
- false air entering after intakesensors
- false air entering at exhaustmanifold (before LAF sensor or lambdasensor)
- injector clodged
- a valve that doesn't close 100%
- misfires (!) because of a bad sparkplug/other reason
- ....
I experimented with temperatures of airintake and never got an errorcode (why should I ?). An increase/decrease of 10 to 20°C is compensated by the stock ECU in an eyeblink.
And getting a lot more air into your engine to get it out of range for the stock ECU is extremely difficult at legal speeds (below 200 km/h).
As I said: throtlle valve is narrowest point anyhow, and only at WOT.
Do you understand my explanation?

i-DSi it has been shown that Stock ECU does have trouble when certain "Inductions Kits" does affect MAF control as alot kits change piper and surrounding for the MAF sensor I.E with mine its now upside down

The stock ECU will be programmed for only so many variations i doubt its programmed for shorter air runs more air flow passing it or forced air passed it

Actually You are right, but have You ever made an experiment with FN2?:) Really, considering Your point everything should be fine in typical car. Unfortunately intake in FN2 is the hardest issue to upgrade- CAI with stock ECU doesn't work. Many guys couldn't sleep until problem was solved. My friend who started upgrading his FN2 in 2007 had about 5-6 intakes and nothing helped. He ordered upgraded sensor which should provide correct AFR, but it didn't help at all. After purchasing a FlashPRO intake started working.
I'm not a specialist so I can't excatly explain why's there such a problem, but every owner of FN2 will find out that upgraded intake with stock ECU doesn't work.:)
Cheers!
