1.8 manual wanted.

I'm on the lookout for a 1.8 petrol 8th Gen Civic if anyone is looking at selling. Preferably 5 door...... like the BTCC cars
Cheaper the better and needs to be manual box.
If anyone knows of reasonable ones going cheap give us a shout.

Starting a development program on them as there are loads out there and nobody has done anything with them over here.

Plan is mild mods
Remaps
Boosting - low boost
Winding it up for big boost
Might even take it racing.

Very interested in this. Sorry, not to sell mine but regarding a remap for it.

Currently running an Injen CAI with Martelius catback so very interested to see what gains are available.

Any improvement to make this quicker will definitely be welcomed by me. If you want my car for testing I'm happy to help but not looking to sell it sorry.

Interesting, I join the queue for a guinea pig tune up

Don't think there is a Type S in 5 door.

I have Type S front seats does that count

It just needs to be the 1.8 petrol and manual box.
Will be ripped apart eventually so overall condition doesn't really matter to some extent.

Does that mean the i-shift won't handle a remap?

Yes you can do it on them.

I'm just looking for a manual car as that's what I need and the one I have the ECU for

Excellent, if you need an i-shift guinea pig when you have it all up and running I'll add myself to the list

We've just been talking about cams in another thread and it got me thinking. Is there a way to use the R18's intake eco cam retarding mechanics in reverse as an intake advance using some custom cams? Would the ecu allow that? Am I talking out of my arse?

Am I right in thinking this engine retards the cams to stay open for a short period during the compression stroke, reroutes the intake mani to longer runners and opens the throttle more, to aid economy? Or is that a newer version..?

If it's anything like the lesser powered K cars like the z1 etc the rocker pins are reversed, i.e the small pins that slide across on vtec to lock the centre roller to the outer lobes.

Just having a quick read. I didn't know there were so many variations of Vtec. I'm probably miles off with what I was saying..

Is the R18 a Vtec-e style system?

That could be very interesting.Especially if you will develop an advanced cam and a remap so it could be combined with a stage 1 tuning package.
