The K20Z1 program advances the ignition, alters the cam timing and optimizes the fuel for better driving and advanced performance. It adds up to 20hp and up to 12 ft/lbs fo torque.
This program works very well with cold air intakes and cat-back exhausts. If you have a race header then you need to use K-pro.
This reflash is not suitable with stock air box, race header, anything other than stock cams, force induction or nitrous.
You are responsible for paying for and sending your ECU to Hondata. You can send your ECU as fast as you would like and shipping costs normally start at $10.00 for ground and $60.00+ for next day air. We recommend using an express service (2 day or next day) through FedEx or UPS because they have the least amount of delivery problems, provide proper insurance, and have good package tracking. We recommend that you do not use USPS because of delivery issues. You are not sending your ECU to K Series Parts you will be sending it to Hondata directly and we provide all of the instructions on where it needs to be sent once your order is approved.
After we approve your order we will send you two emails, one email will be a Hondata form and the other email will be instructions for shipping and what items need to be included. Orders submitted by 3:00pm Mountain Standard Time Monday to Friday are normally approved same day. Orders places after 3:00pm MST or on Saturday and Sunday are processed the next business day.
Hondata normally reflashes ECU's the same day they receive them but they do get busy and it might take an extra business day. We recommend that you plan on a 3 day total turnaround time from the day that Hondata receives your ECU.
Hondata uses K Series Parts FedEx account to next day air the ECU back to you once the reflash has been installed. This means that you do not have to pay for return shipping. Your ECU will arrive by 3:00pm the day after Hondata completes the reflash installation. Hondata does not provide us with a tracking number or notification when they ship the ECU back to you.

All in all, okay
By Kazumi Nomura on 6/30/2012
This product is okay. It gives moderate gains. Engine sounds a little different, sounds a little deeper. It does make your car and acceleration smoother. I like the product, it's a nice gain, improvement. You really have to look for the difference, it's not easily apparant, noticable. Hopefully should be nice with some other improvements I plan to do.

2006 Type-S. Injen Ram air, Borla exhaust, and now the relash. Holy smokes. What a difference. Must have if you have no plans to turbo or supercharge. No need for me with these mods.

Feels like it grew to a 2.2L
By IronGumby on 3/25/2012
I cannot be happier with this mod!! It feels primed and ready for action at all times now. The new-found torque down low makes you wonder how you ever drove it before; it's hard to make it bog. VTEC now is enjoyed from 4900 on up and just really shines and makes one proud to have a K-motor. You can feel it surge a second time as you surpass 7000rpm, too! The higher revs are foreign to the ear and I feel like it finally broke my motor in. This is all with only the Icebox intake so I can only wonder what adding the CRSX header will do!

Totally Worth It
By Daniel Koffer on 2/13/2012
I got the reflash a few months ago because I didn't, and still dont plan to do anymore then basic bolt-ons. I already had a cai, and with the reflash, it is a night and day difference over stock. Worth every penny.
