The FlashPro allows datalogging and limited tuning for your 2007-2012 Honda CRV. It includes Windows based software called FlashProManager. The FlashPro connects from your laptop's USB port to your vehicles diagnostic port.
California emissions compliant (CARB EO D-742-1), which allows this product to be used on street vehicles within the USA.
This FlashPro allows limited tuning or preset calibrations. For competition vehicles we recommend the FP-RDX-US FlashPro as that FlashPro allows full tuning.

What sort of improvements can I expect if my car is modified?
This RDX had the second catalytic converter removed, was fitted with a custom 3" exhaust, an intake and tuned. Gains were in the order of 47 lb-ft torque and 47 hp.
What sort of improvements can I expect if my car is stock?
This stock 07 Acura RDX gained 26 hp solely from FlashPro tuning. This is the tuning previously used in the RDX reflash and is now included as a base calibration. Gains were made from altering the boost, advancing the ignition, and leaning the mixture.
How much can I increase the boost?
The RDX MAP sensor will read up to 26 psi of boost but no testing was done above 15 psi.
We raised midrange boost on our test RDX from 14-15 psi. Boost at peak RPM was raised from 8 to 12 psi. At 12 psi the stock injectors were very close to maximum duty cycle. More boost requires larger injectors. Base calibrations are provided for 600 and 800cc injectors. Boost is also limited by fuel octane. All tests were done with California 91 octane.
What is a CARB FlashPro?
A CARB FlashPro is a FlashPro which only allows uploads from calibrations which are determined to not alter the any emissions related parameters in the ECU.
What does CARB stand for?
Not carburetor. 'CARB' is the common term for the California Air Resources Board, who are responsible for determining if calibrations could affect emissions.
Why should I use the CARB FlashPro?
Within the USA you must use the CARB FlashPro for any emissions controlled vehicle.
But I don't live in California / my state does not do emissions tests.
It does not matter - the concept of '49 state legal' is no longer valid. Under the federal Clean Air Act administered by the EPA it is not legal to change any emissions equipment (including the ECU) on any emissions controlled vehicle. There is no mechanism to prove to the EPA that an ECU modification does not affect emissions, but the EPA will accept the California Air Resources Board approval. Hence California legal modifications are also federally legal.
