I'm excited. I hope I didn't mess up the datalogs. Excited to get rid of that flat midrange.

A little tip from me, take your laptop out with you and save the data logs to it at the road side. Ensuring all the files have saved properly and none just have 1kb next to them. This means if a data log is corrupt for whatever reason you can carry out the run again.

That's what I did Beato . I needed to be able to upload the new maps anyway so I just ensured I downloaded each data log. One more set tonight if the rain stops.

This just reminds me how much Ive been slacking at logging. Should have just brought all my crap and done it at the dragon last week.

I finally got my tune. So far its a monsoon outside but the power is there. The flat spot between 2k-5k is gone. But I'm with op, I cant get used to the slow speed throttle. I will email gernby to give some feedback.

In all fairness, I believe Gernby had the right intentions. The slow speed bucking when you let off or jab the throttle does seem frustrating at slow speeds and his map helps this. But you are right about it feeling lazy Seanix. It almost feels like a turbo car with a slight hesitation and then you jump into the power.

Currently its back to stock throttle map but I am determined to try and make it smoother. So I will revise the map and try to keep the "pep" without the jarring.

As I mentioned, I really had to think hard for the cons in this review. My bad about the laptop instructions...I will edit the review though to correctly reflect this.

The process was relatively straight forward. Gernby sends a few base maps with instructions on collecting and sending the data logs back to him.
Need some help, guys.

I received Greg's initial seven calibrations to run the trials and unzipped them into my laptop. Problem is I see no way to load these into the FlashPro and consequently no way to dump them into the ECU.

I see all the Hondata calibrations but Greg's don't show up when I go into the calibrations screen even though I copied them into the same folder as the Hondata calibrations.

1. Connect Flashpro unit to your car and your laptop
2. Turn the cars key into the "on" position
3. Launch Flashpromanager (FPM)
4. Make sure that the ECU is online (4 green checkmarks in the lower left of FPM window)
5. Click File-->Open
6. Find the folder with Gernbys calibrations and select the first one
7. Click the Upload Calibration button (it's an Arrow - 4th button to the right of "New Calibration")
8. Wait about 90 seconds until the upload is finished.
