Cool ECU-remap

Hi all, i'm new on the site so apologies if this is not in the right place

I have had my Type R for a couple of weeks now and having carefully run it in, i am now beginning to enjoy it.....

However, I was disappointed to be told by my dealer about the Typr R-R last week which is supposed to have in the region of 260 bhp !

After some research it appears to be using the same engine so in theory they have (despite some weight savings and other minor tweaks) remaped the ECU to provide improved performance

I spoke to Celtic Tuning who remap the diesel version, but are unable to offer anything on the Type R

Does anyone know of any companies offering ECU remap for the Type R

I had my last car remaped by Revo and the performance difference was blistering !

I think you will find that the RR has a different cam, and lighter piston , as well as the ECU

from AutoExpress

Thanks to careful tuning, this car kicks out a tyre-burning 260bhp. It's the same basic i-VTEC 2.0-litre unit, but Honda has reduced friction on the internals and redesigned the camshafts. However, the greatest power gains have come from electronic improvements made using the ECU to operate the VTEC system.

Now, the engine doesn't go into fuel-sipping mode at lower revs, improving throttle response as a result. Meanwhile, the VTEC set-up cuts in at 5,100rpm instead of 5,400rpm. So rather than the perceptible increase in power you get when VTEC is unleashed on the standard model, the R-R's engine feels stronger throughout the rev range thanks to a 30 per cent hike in torque.
HOWEVER (and it's a BIG however) - This is from AutoExpress. The same people who said (except in very small print) that this was Honda releasing this car.
It's not.


So I'd personally be taking it with a rather large pinch of salt...

You may, though, get some joy from JAS, who are the people who actually developed the car.

BUT - read the Civic-RR thread in here before you start getting excited and looking for their phone number


Welcome aboard by the way!

Thanks for the comments, i looked at JAS but could only find an Italian website

There are remaps out there for other models, so i would imagine that they will at some point become more readily available - at a more sensible cost !
