Hondata Reflash for 10th Gen Civic

Hondata reflash to get the party started.

By Aaron Gaghagen

 

The 10th generation Honda Civic is popular. It’s outselling all of its competitors. It has shown itself to be quicker than its USDM predecessors and have better standard options too. The reception by enthusiasts has been predictably cold. There’s no manual transmission yet and it is more expensive than ever. Perhaps that’s a result of being benchmarked against offerings from Mercedes Benz and Audi or Honda’s desire to advance the breed.

The good thing for enthusiasts is that, in typical Honda fashion, Honda engineers left much room for improving performance on the table. That brings us to Hondata, the company that cracked the tuning potential of Honda through it’s computer with products such as S300, K-Pro and FlashPro. It appears that Hondata has done it again, this time for the newest generation 1.5 liter Honda Civic. The Hondata Reflash is currently for the Civic coupe and sedan equipped with the 1.5L turbo engine.

 

Honda Reflash Highlights include:

  • Turbo spooled 500 rpm earlier
  • 20-28 hp increase from 4500 rpm to 6000 rpm
  • 4 to 6 psi boost increase from 3000 rpm to 6000 rpm
  • Fuel and ignition optimized
  • Partial throttle fuel economy unchanged
  • 91 octane tuned (It will run on 87 octane with a reduction in performance. They recommend 91-93 octane.)

The Hondata Reflash for the 2016 turbo Honda Civic is now currently available at $295 through authorized Hondata dealers.

Aaron Gaghagen is a veteran video editor and longtime Honda enthusiast. All told, he’s owned seven of them, and has enjoyed every single minute of wrenching on every single one. Except for that automatic one. That was probably a mistake. In 2010 Aaron teamed up with Brian Gillespie who along with another partner launched Nacho Speed Garage, a venture that capitalized on Aaron’s video expertise to do its part in entertaining and educating the Honda masses. Nacho Speed Garage took everything to the next level. Instead of reading magazines and cruising forums for content, Aaron and Brian were generating it themselves. The demise of Honda Tuning magazine in 2014 was the impetus for Aaron to do something even more impactful, though, which led to the creation of VTEC Academy and aims to carry that Honda torch forward in the same spirt of not just Honda Tuning but Nacho Speed Garage.
