R18 Type-S development (Turbo video on post 1)

Finally got someone genuinely interested to work with us on the testing of a few bits for the R18 and see if we could remap them ok and make and improvements on the general performance and then look at possible upgrading options.




Actually been having several of them in recently for servicing, suspension work and the lines but was able to spend the day on Ashleys lovely example doing some tests then installing the US R18 ECU, recoding it and doing a base tune.

We had no check lights after swapping to the US ecu and remapping with flashpro but you loose cruise control as there isn't provision for the 6 speed box on the Euro cars, you loose the reverse lockout as well but that's something we can easily get around and I have a strange thing happening at 6000rpm on full throttle where the throttle plate starts to close.

Needs some more work but it's looking promising.
Whether owners would be willing to pay about 1000 for an ecu, Flashpro and remap I doubt but for me we know we can get the cars up and running with a mappable solution so if someone wants to do a project build we know we can do it

Next step is adding a little boost.




Update.

Things have progressed quite a long way and today for the first time we were able to put it on the dyno with a fresh Turbo build.

Enjoy.

Nice one guys

Would this ECU work with an FI conversion?

EDIT: Just seen the last line of your post..

EDIT2: Is there any scope for a decent increase with cams?

Yeah we hit 160 with just a remap and good exhaust so decatting and possible cam change would certainly help.
Don't think of the motors in the same way as the K20 as its designed more for economy with performance.

Dead easy to turbo though..... just like the latest generation motors they are using and bringing out

Wow that's impressive. It makes that 1000 seem pretty justifiable IMO. A before and after dyno graph would be interesting if you get a sec. Just out of curiosity really, but I know you're very busy. It'd be nice to see where the gains are.

Well the cost is not high if you consider that you are ready to go for the next step: FI

Well Flashpro and map is 899. Rest is whatever cost it is to get the right ecu from America so depends on that really.
I can recode them in house now which is handy as the dealers struggled with it with their new HDS system

Would you have to go done the ecu/flashpro route to turbo as I wouldn't like to lose cruise control.

I believe it is the only way mark cruise control work over 62mph though, so not lost completely

I've tried the solution with a parallel ecu but If you are going for FI the us ecu & hondata is the only way to have really good results.

Only really use it on motorways so that's good enough for me.
