Would like to know what were the gains with the sfr reflash( hp,tq and 1/4m), and with what mods. Just wanted to know if its worth it since their comming to my home town on the 2oth.

There is no reflash available.
The only thing in that way is the RRM piggyback
A quick schearch on the forum will give you the information about it.

Don't expect alot more HP with a reflash on a none-turbo car.
But a better power curve

You will prefer begin by add an CAI and an cat-back before thinking flashing ECU
again, a schearch on the forum will give you alot of information about tuning your forte

THEY OFFER A REFLASH MONTHS AGO , AND THE COST IS 450 AT PREDATOR Eric_kia_verde. BUT THEY WILL ONLY BE THE MARCH 20. JUST WANTED TO KNOW THE GAINS OF HP AND TQ, SINCE I KNOW IT MAKES THE CAR MORE FUN BY REMOVING REV HANG, TOP SPEED AND REVS HIGHER ETC.

Also i know it may sound funny why im asking, and you might think is a fair price but, their is someone down here in puerto rico who does reflash to lancer 08 up thats almost (not saying the same ) our engine and he manages to incres 20 whp and 15 wtq with minor mods like intake and exhaust, and thats above what the intake and exhaust gives you( example a guy came in with 130 whp with just and axel back exhaust and a hks air filter not even a cai or sri installed and he manage to make 153 whp on the base model 2.0, and ive seen the 2.4 with few mods at 180 whp ), for just 250.00 us. But he doesnt have the reflash for our cars yet. Thats why im asking if its worth it for the money

Well my 2 cents. I believen just taking off the governor and bumping up the redline is worth it. Then again thats just me. Also how can that guy manage so much power? Did he advance the timing? Sfr cant get that much juice out of it unless it was a gen

IF IM NOT WRONG, IT DOES ADVANCE TIMING BUT NOT BY MUCH. ITS REALLY IMPRESSIVE BECAUSE THE REFLASH TUNE IS VERY STREET USE AND SAFE, DOESENT GIVE ANY PROBLEMS AND IT SAVES YOU A LOT OF GAS. CHECK THIS GTS OUT

You can do that with the sfr reflash, you can go back to stock. Just want to know the hp and tq gains. Cause i find it a little steep paying 450 and getting 5whp.
