Re: Fully Built R18 Stepping Up

Nice setup, but I can't help but say for the cost of all those parts you could have put a K20 motor in there with a turbo. The R18 is okay and all, just kind of sohc..

Um, what are you looking for exactly, $$ to HP its not exactly a smart idea your better off just starting off on a base K20Z3, if you're looking to make real power than K20Z3 it is.

Re: Fully Built R18 Stepping Up

And we're just starting! we had a successful start to testing on the ‪‎VitTuned‬ Honda Civic R18 running our custom VitTuned MoTec‬ ‪M150‬ firmware package. The fuel system couldn't keep up and I had to cut the testing short, but everything went very smooth otherwise -- made 410hp & 330tq on 22psi of boost using an old PTE 5757 turbocharger (with a 2.5" downpipe at that).

The MoTeC firmware package we've developed brings a lot to what has been an otherwise neglected platform -- anti lag, closed loop boost control, boost by gear, closed loop lambda control w/ an LSU 4.9 wideband sensor (accurate even for full time closed loop in boost!), launch control, traction control, flat foot shift, rolling antilag... the list of features just goes on! We'll be demoing some of the features after we get the fuel system upgraded to handle big power on this platform.

When an R18 sounds more savage than your K series.

Re: Fully Built R18 Stepping Up

What's the word on the transmission? I am looking at doing a Boosted K20 build in mine, and I wanna know what the trans will hold, cause I like the 5 speed better.

Re: Fully Built R18 Stepping Up

Hey, I want to bore, sleeve, and turbo my 2006 r18a1 168k (pretty much everything you have done) the story is that my engine in my 06 civic had a knock for about 2 months then finally gave out, I put a newer (61k) motor in it and now have my old one torn down to bare block sitting in 2 totes in my apartment, I found the connecting rod bearings of 3 cylinders in shards in the oil pan, so of course the crank and cylinder walls are in pretty bad shape. I am going to be building a tube steel bare bones car from scratch to look like a BAC mono or Ariel atom style, that my r18 I would like to rebuild and boost will go in, but in the rear! Since this will be a fully from scratch (other than some steering and suspension components coming from a crown Vic AMD c5 vette) size of the engine won't be an issue as i am going to build the engine then build the car around it. NOW TO THE POINT, I saw your build and it is exactly what I want to do, engine, tranny, everything. So I am wondering if you can give me am estimated cost of your build and pointers on how to get it all done and what needs to be diy fab'd. Any help is appreciated!
