Do not sell your Type R!

Don't be so hasty to get rid, think yourselves lucky.

Why?

Because it may be your last chance for mad high revs and VTEC.

So many turbo performance cars now and even Honda may go that way.

I will hang on to mine for as long as I can, I can go big power and turbo anytime, but 8000 rpm and instant throttle response could be history.

In years to come it will be missed.

That is all, enjoy it while you can.

Well, if you're talking new cars then maybe... but plenty of other VTEC Hondas available

Wouldn't mind an S2000 myself!

True but when they get older it will be harder and harder to get a good one. I love the EK9 and DC2 but finding mint ones is the issue. Plus age related niggles and rust don't think I'd do it.

Totally agree. One of the reasons why I went with the FN2 was that a lot of the DC2s and s2000s available were looking worn out and had heaps of miles on them. I was able to get an FN2 in much better condition.

I love the high reving engine but I would never sell my fn2 even if they made a new one! But in worst case I'll just buy a ferrari, the F12Berlinetta looks nice

Turbo does not determine how high it can rev. Also emissions tests are not done at high rpm so it is unlikely that the next CTR will rev any less. Simply the turbo takes energy that would have been lost from the exhaust gas and uses that to compress air going into the engine making the whole process more efficient.

Thats probably true but instead of making it high reving to get power they use turbo with less revs for same power and cost. Wouldnt it be more expensive with both turbo and high revs?

Revs are more determined by the size of the piston and stroke. The CTR has wider pistons and shorter stroke compared to other engines. They are also not going for the same power, they are aiming for 300hp.

Okey so it wouldnt make any big difference in cost making it high reving in stead of turbo and low revs then, other than another design?

It is just the design of the engine from the ground up. There is going to be more wear with higher rpm engines but Honda seem to have this nailed. The big addition to the cost will be the turbo.

It will be the last of the N/A screamers for sure in this segment. We might be losing the manual box as well in the future with the way things are going.

I can't see people giving up manual transmission on any vehicle in the name of efficiency.

Most people want manual not semi-auto / auto. Any car company doing away with a manual options is committing suicide, at least in the UK.

You not seen the Type-Rs we been building for the last few years clearly.
10000rpm AND turbos or superchargers.
Best of both worlds.

Honda uk take note..... Nobody wants a rep mobile. We want high revs and boost.

Maybe you should put tdi forward for r&d on the new type r paul.

It won't scream or sound the same I really hope honda ditch the turbo R plans and leave them for the dervs. I've come from a volvo C70 2.3 turbo and can say the type s let alone type r scream is addictive . My ears are blessed with the sound of a N/A engine it doesn't matter if it revs to 8k rpm a lot of sound will be lost will never go back to a petrol turbo . Even porsche enthusiasts prefer the n/a machines over the turbo version and that says it all!!
