hang

  1. Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    So I've have my Si TFW sedan for about two months now and have surprisingly experienced something I've that's never happened in my 20+ years of driving. As a general rule, I use engine braking whenever possible, meaning I downshift and let the engine drop revs on it's own in each gear. A few...
  2. ECU Tuning
    Well, I have been doing a good job of not spending excessive amounts of money on my Si, but I am intrigued by FlashPro and the tuning services offered by VIT. Even though my engine is stock and will likely remain largely stock, I would like to know I am getting everything out of the engine I...
  3. ECU Tuning
    I just switched maps for fun. I installed the Stock equivalent one "reflashed" and it felt like how my car came from the factory. I know hondata doesnt take away all the rev hang but when I had the stock equivalent one. It was bascally almost all gone. Now with thr reflash map, ITS BAD. lol I...

    Curious as to what y'all (if anything) have hanging from your review mirror. I have (image attached) a dog tag with a line from one of my favorite songs of all time, my favorite guitar pick and this very cool key chain of my personal logo. The key chain was a birthday gift from my coworker...
  5. Drivetrain Problems
    Just letting you all know (as IF you don't know most of this already!!!) that I just got off the phone with North American Honda, Torrance about my Rev Hang that I've been "formally" complaining about - IN WRITING - since June - even have a "case number" wow!!! The "Chris" that I talked to gave...

    Hey guys, I was told that taking the car in and getting Honda to plug in the.. Forgive me I think it's called the mcif tester they would find an update that would cure the rev hang a little bit.. When I took it in the dealership said no update was required.. So I am wondering if isthmus update...
  7. Drivetrain Problems
    Hi, my Si has about 8K miles on it. Over the last couple of weeks my car has not had rev hang at all. I am wondering if it has to do with the extreme 100 degree temps in N.C. Anyone else have a similar situation or am I just lucky?
  8. Drivetrain Problems
    Here is the CORRECT Info - straight from my Honda Shop Foreman - who fixed my car last week Saturday. I DO have it posted on the Rev Hang CURED site also - but wanted to get it out to all. The FI Program that is programmed INTO our ECU's is either X0A030 or X0A050. That's the FI Program ONLY...

    If you will get your Honda Dealer to connect their MVCI Tester to your car - it will come up with a Trouble Code reading "PGM-FI" and show a "Recommended Program Update" of Version 2.17.06 to the FI Program X0A030. When that Software Update Program is installed it WILL "cure" the Rev Hang/Rev...
  10. Drivetrain Problems
    I am a new 2012 Si owner, and I am not new to manual transmissions. The only drawback could be that I learned on an Audi S4. The car has 700 miles on it. I have seen 2 persistent mentionings; Rev Hang and 3rd Grinding. Rev Hang: I have seen so many definitions of why this happens and what it...
  11. Drivetrain Problems
    Hello all, Just noticed this happening the last couple days...I have a LX Sedan Automatic and the last couple days going down hill on Cruise Control on the freeway my RPM's jump from the low 2's to 3 1/2 and then jump all the way to 5 which was surprising...the downhill was steep at...
  12. Drivetrain Problems
    I have heard that you can set up a web petition on an issue. In this case we could set one up to get Honda to modify the SI rev hang. When enough SI' owners names get on, we can make sure the petition gets to Honda Corporate. What can or will Honda do about it? Well, for one thing, they could...
  13. Drivetrain Problems
    For those of you with manual transmissions, do you still "heel and toe" downshift (blip the throttle between shifts) even though the engine "hangs" the revs for you between shifts?
  14. Drivetrain Problems
    Anyone driving one of these care to chime in with their experience? "In fact, our only serious beef with the new engine is its considerable overrun when the throttle is suddenly dropped. Among other things, that makes for very little initial engine braking, and the revs sometimes take a couple...
