The FlashPro, is a new electronic control unit calibration, designed to improve the feel
of the vehicle by making modifications to the vehicle‘s rev limiter, throttle response,
speed limiter, camshaft timing, and ignition timing. New calibration is installed using a
laptop, there are no user adjustments to emissions related data files. No other
changes are required for proper installation. Boost on turbo models is increased by
roughly 5 psi.


This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the
FlashPro will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the FlashPro, as exempt by the
Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the FlashPro using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the FlashPro, for an application other than those listed
in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any FlashPro advertised, offered for sale, sold
with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
FlashPro may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data generated on a
2017 model—year 1.5L Honda Civic (test group HHHXVO1.5562), certified to the Low
Emission Vehicle 3 Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle 30 (LEV 3 SULEV 30) emission
standards with the FlashPro calibration installed. Testing consisted of a Cold—Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test
Procedure (SFTP USO6/SCO03 (AC2 test + 20%)) test cycle.

Boost pressure gain was measured at 4.6 psi.

On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1I) test data showed that the FlashPro did not affect the
ability to perform OBD II monitoring. The FlashPro should have a similar effect on
emissions and OBD II monitoring for the other vehicles listed in this Executive Order.
