Hondata FK8 Civic Type R Fuel System Upgrade
The Hondata FK8 Civic Type R fuel system upgrade consists of hardware and software components designed to deliver 24% more fuel flow over the stock fuel system. This upgrade enables the Civic Type R to take the next logical step for a reliable, well engineered and thoroughly tested power increase.
• High flow ethanol rated in-tank low pressure fuel pump
• High flow ethanol rated low pressure fuel line
• High flow direct injection fuel pump
• High flow high pressure fuel line
• High flow fuel injectors
• Precision Hondata FlashPro software control
• Multiple calibrations starting with an increase of 92 lb-ft torque and 59 hp over stock with intercooler and high flow cat.
In addition to the new fuel system, Hondata has provided ECU calibrations for our product line of Civic Type R Turbo Kits and Performance Parts available for download in FlashPro Manager Software. Tuning has never been easier! Over a year of track testing as well as daily driving went into making these tunes the most reliable, safe, and highest power Civic Type R Tuning options available, making the Full-Race EFR turbo kit and Hondata’s Full System Upgrade and FlashPro a winning combination. Below you will find some examples of what is possible with our bolt on turbo kit and performance upgrades!
@Stig_JDM experience at Global Time Attack
The Hondata team did an amazing job installing the upgraded fuel system on my car in preparation for the Global Time Attack finals at Buttonwillow in November 2019. Since the car had already been used for 30+ track days with a Hondata FlashPro and would continue to be abused at the track, we decided to go with a conservative tune on 93 pump gas. With the upgraded system, the car went from 360whp to 400whp on stock turbo and basic bolt-ons (Intercooler, Downpipe and Front Pipe + Catback). Although we chose to be conservative and the power increase was just moderate, the additional torque/power translated into a mind blowing engine response and improved lap times at Buttonwillow by approximately 2s (a 2s improvement when you are running 1:54 lap times on a street Civic is A LOT!). Better yet, the fuel system ran flawlessly for the whole event with no check engine lights or going into limp mode. If you are familiar with the Civic Type R, you know how sensitive the stock ECU is and how it likes to throw codes. I’m looking forward to seeing this system being used widely with more aggressive tunes and upgraded turbos to explore the full potential of the system.
