Can the perfect Honda be quantified? Does it even need to be? If it's numbers you're after, then the answer is yes. And yes. Quarter miles, lap times, and dynos don't lie, and it's numbers like these that determine a car's rank. How then do you quantify the subjective when quarter miles, lap times, and dyno data aren't yet known? Can red be wrong? Can something be too shiny? Not shiny enough? Or do you just trust an organization like SEMA and its Battle of the Builders competition that recognizes Ryan Basseri's Porsche GT3 RS-themed Integra Type R and Big Mike's Prelude with its Formula 1 livery as among the best of the best? Photo 2/23 | Big Mike Honda Prelude Rywire Honda Integra Type R Are these the ultimate Hondas? Does it even matter? That's for you to decide after our one-on-one interview with Ryan and Mike.
Super Street: You've both owned cars that've achieved recognition and that you were able to enjoy on a regular basis since they were primarily street cars. Do you miss that? Big Mike: The ability to just start up a car and drive it on the street, there are many times that you do miss that. But that's why you have other cars. Ryan Basseri: The amount of hassle you could potentially have with police or other people, you have a really big investment in your vehicle, and you don't want to just drive it and get rear-ended by a little old lady.
Having another car to fill that void helps. [The Type R] was a car on the side that was built for a purpose, for my business and to challenge myself. Photo 3/23 | 1997 Honda Integra Type R Pci Side Skirts SS: Why a Prelude, Mike? It's one of the most under-appreciated classic Hondas and yet you continue to update yours. BM: Even in high school in the '90s, the shape of the fourth-gen Prelude—the sweeping dash, the electroluminescent gauges—I thought it was this really good-looking, classy, ahead-of-its-time car.
It's not a complicated thing; I enjoyed the car's lines and was able to get it for a fair price. SS: Why do you think more people don't modify Preludes? BM: I suppose it's their comfort zone. The aftermarket support for Civics and Integras is massive. Stepping out of your comfort zone, learning about a Prelude or an Accord, that's not easy. SS: Ryan, why did you choose the Type R? RB: I was into CRXs and Civics and never really thought about a Type R.
A guy I knew was selling an unregistered Japanese shell; it was under a thousand bucks, so I figured I'd be stupid not to grab it. After that, I got a really good deal on a rollcage and then it just turned into this whole thing that I never really planned on. SS: Mike, how difficult has it been to not swap a more modern K-series engine into place, if at all? BM: I think the K better responds to making power, but there's nothing about that setup that appeals to me or my car.
I like the look of what I grew up seeing in the '90s—that H/F look. Photo 7/23 | The most obvious changes to Big Mike's Prelude since you've last seen it are its new color scheme and motorsports-inspired livery that pays homage to Martini Racing. Here, nothing's not stock in any obvious sort of way. The Jun front spoiler integrates into the factory bumper and the PCI side skirts and custom fenders look as though they might belong on a more modern, updated version of the Prelude, were one to exist.
SS: There's an argument to be made for the guy who starts racing a bone-stock Civic and continues upgrading it over time. Instead, both of you have followed an all-or-nothing approach. Do you stand by that method? RB: We've done it the other way, too. I think there's good and bad to both ways. With the Integra, it was a slow-moving process but with big steps. Doing things the other way, where you save up, you do a swap, and you add more parts, I think that can definitely be more fun.
The way I did it was more stressful and costs more money at once. It's not really an enthusiast's approach to building a car. BM: I've done it both ways with the Prelude. What we're trying to do and create is just so far out there that you really couldn't do it piece by piece. When you've designed a car in your head from front to back, it would only make sense to build it all at once in order for everything to be complementary.
Starting stock and going piece by piece and relearning the car in, let's say, Time Attack, feeling each new part, that's ideal. But there's a certain level of experience where you know what [certain modifications will result in]. You're not taking any risks at that point. Photo 8/23 | Ryan's exterior pays homage to Porsche's 997 GT3 RS, but behind the orange panels, it's all Honda, and about as much Type R as it is Porsche.
Everything that makes the Type R the special car that it is was stripped away in favor of parts of an even higher pedigree, like the Eibach R2 coilovers and AP Racing brakes that are of IndyCar heritage. SS: How did you overcome any setbacks you'd encountered during your builds? RB: I threw money at it [laughs]. There were a lot of things we needed [custom-made] that just didn't work out. You'd look at the part that you just spent X amount of dollars on that was now trash and you'd just start again.
There were pieces made that, when test-fitted, we realized weren't gonna work. It's not Target; you can't send it back for credit, so you lose out. BM: So many parts are one-off pieces that you're reliant on somebody who does that for a living. If they don't do it within the time frame that you want them to, you have no choice. The biggest setback for me is the deadline that we put ourselves on.
It's the catalyst that makes you go but it's the part that makes it so brutally fatiguing—financially, mentally, and physically. It's a very brutal thing to try and do in your spare time. RB: For SEMA, look at who else is building high-profile cars—shops that have 15 employees to help work on them. SS: Is there anything you'd tried implementing that you just weren't able to? BM: My cooling system ended up being designed three times.
It's part of the learning process. I had an entire aero package fully designed that just flat out couldn't happen in time. RB: I have custom fenders on the car, but they weren't what I had in mind. Everything else ended up getting done the way I wanted it. SS: What keeps drawing you back toward classic Hondas? Both of you have primarily owned pre-'00 Hondas. How would you compare those to something like the current Civic Si? RB: I would buy a brand-new Civic Si for my wife.
I think it's a good car and it's reliable; as far as modifying one, I'd never buy one for that. BM: We're building '90s cars—new technology in an old car; you can't do that with a new car. Photo 12/23 | 1997 Honda Integra Type R Aviaid Dry Sump Tank Photo 13/23 | Underneath the hood is a standard-issued 2.4L K-series block that's been topped off with the better-performing head from the 2.
0L. The obvious tells you that it's turbocharged by way of a Precision turbo but what you don't notice right away is the HPD dry-sump oiling system that, like that transmission, is the sort of motorsports technology you won't normally find on any Honda. SS: Do you envision 20 years from now a '17 Civic Si being built similarly to your cars? BM: I do. I don't know to what scale. The '90s was the golden era for music, for a lot of things, and for us it was cars.
For me, I stick to the classic, Japanese '90s cars because that's what I grew up seeing and wanting. I also don't aspire to have a car payment. SS: How difficult was it for you to obtain the information and parts you needed when you started building cars compared to now? BM: Today, there are DIY and FAQ threads and YouTube tutorials and everything that could help someone learn. I used to pay shops to do everything because I didn't know how to do it.
I had to get screwed over and burned and had to learn before I started doing stuff myself. Those experiences made me learn. I had to pay a lot of money and get burned a lot before I got to this point where I have the acquaintances and support that I do now. RB: I heard that there was a teacher at a college near my house who was a Honda technician and was teaching a course. I decided I'd sign up for his class and see if he'd let me do an engine swap.
My B16 swap in my CRX was done at that college. I was 17 or 18. It was actually easier than I could've imagined, and I learned so much. Photo 14/23 | You weren't expecting the Alcantara-draped interior, either, of which coexists alongside an AiM Sports dash and AEM engine management system, all customized by Rywire and positioned within the confines of the car's six-point rollcage. SS: What's something unique about your cars that you haven't seen done before? RB: I would say the pneumatic paddle shifter that I designed.
It's a combination of F1 technology and some of the cutting-edge stuff that my ECU can control. When I heard that the ECU had strategies for shifting, and I already had a sequential gearbox, I was like, well, let's do something crazy. BM: I don't know if it's so much one thing as it is everything. I think it takes a certain level of balls to take cues from off-roading to drag cars to Time Attack cars to hot rods to show cars.
I took cues from all of these worlds and put them together in one place. From the F1-inspired livery to the hot rod-esque panels in the back. SS: Is there a wrong way to build a car? Are there modifications that shouldn't be made or is everything fair game? BM: I think the motive behind something can very much be wrong. If you build a car for attention, it's wrong. That attention will be based upon what's popular at that time and that will constantly evolve, which means you'll never be happy with it.
RB: Ryan from Rywire says that everybody has the right to do whatever they want. Ryan Basseri thinks the opposite [laughs]. BM: You can't build a shitty car and get mad if people call it shitty [laughs]. There is math and science that will tell you that a certain thing is wrong. Photo 18/23 | You think it's an H-series and you're mostly wrong. Here you'll find Honda's F20B, which is essentially a de-stroked version of the H22A.
Modern-day power levels are obtained by way of a Garrett turbo of modest proportions but are overshadowed by the car's custom cooling, oiling, and fuel systems, the likes of which, typically, only race cars are accustomed to. SS: Both of you have fans who aspire to build their cars like yours. How can they get started? RB: Don't think you're gonna build a perfect car the first time around or even the third time around.
You're gonna have a lot of failures. Even I still have a lot to learn. BM: Envision the car in your head, and once you know exactly what you want to build, write down every single part you need, price it out, then do the math. When you get the total number, stare at it. If you still want to build the car, start there. SS: What would you have built if Honda didn't exist? BM: An FD RX-7 or a Mk IV Supra.
RB: My options when I was kid were a CRX, a Volkswagen Corrado, or a Toyota MR2. Probably an MR2. Photo 19/23 | Inside it's all business and where you'll find evidence of the Quaife sequential gearbox and the OMP steering wheel of which Basseri used—along with a series of MoTeC electronics—to control that transmission by way of a custom-designed paddle shifting system, the likes of which you've never seen within any unibody Honda.
SS: Where do you go from here? Is this the peak as far as building a Honda goes? BM: I believe you can always be better. When you build something that people believe is a masterpiece, you still see the flaws. I don't intend to redo the Prelude again, just make it better. RB: I've thought about building a Fox body Mustang. I don't really plan on building any kind of car that will be any less than the Integra.
That Mustang would have to outshine the Integra in my mind and would have to be pretty gnarly. Photo 23/23 | Big Mike Honda Prelude Rywire Honda Integra Type R View Photo Gallery (23) PhotosSee Also: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Without Complications Icd 10

Honda Civic Type R Overview Manufacturer Honda Production 1997–present Body and chassis Class Sport compact Body style 3-door hatchback 5-door hatchback 4-door sedan Layout FF layout Related Honda Civic Si The Honda Civic Type R is the highest performance version of the Honda Civic made by Honda Motor Company of Japan. It features a lightened and stiffened body, specially tuned engine and upgraded brakes and chassis.
Red is also used in the badge interior to give it a special sporting distinction and to separate it from other Honda models. In Japan, there is a one-make series of Honda Type R cars where a privateer can purchase an off-road Type R and compete in a series championship, which is a stepping stone for many aspiring racing drivers. 1st generation (EK9 chassis) (1997–2000) First generation (EK9) Overview Production 1997–2000 Assembly Suzuka, Japan Body and chassis Body style 3-door hatchback Layout FF layout Powertrain Engine 1.

The contributing base model was the JDM Civic 3-door hatchback called SiR, code named EK4.
Like its big brother the Integra Type R DC2/JDM DB8, the Civic SiR's transformation into a Type R was achieved by working on the base model and improving it to Honda's idea of a car capable of high performance on the circuit. The first Civic to receive the Type R badge was introduced in August 1997, as the EK9. The EK9 shared many characteristics with the Integra Type R DC2/ JDM DB8 such as omission of sound deadening and other weight-reduction measures, a hand-ported B16B engine, front helical limited-slip differential and close ratio gearbox.
The B16B engine boasted one of the highest power output per litre of all time for a naturally-aspirated engine with 185 PS (136 kW; 182 hp) from 1.6L of engine displacement. For the first time, a strategically seam welded monocoque chassis was used to improve chassis rigidity. The interior featured red seats, red door cards, red Type R floor mats, a titanium shift knob, and a Momo leather-wrapped steering wheel.

It came with steel wheels, no air conditioning, no power windows, no power steering, no radio, and came with the standard Type R interior. Type Rx model was given a CD player, body coloured retractable electric door mirrors, power windows, auto air conditioning, keyless entry unlock system, aluminium sports pedals, and a carbon type centre panel.

1 in) Curb weight 1,204 kg (2,654 lb) Honda Civic Type R (EP3) rear In 2001 Honda introduced the next generation of the Civic Type R (EP3) as a unique 3-door hatchback to the UK market, which was manufactured in Swindon, England. This EDM (European Domestic Market) Civic Type R featured a 200 PS (150 kW; 200 hp) 2.0L i-VTEC engine (K20A2) and the regular Type R treatment of seam welding, close ratio 6-speed transmission and uprated brakes, but did not include some of the other higher-end features, such as the helical LSD and red Recaro race-seats, that were standard in the previous generation EK9.
However, Honda of Japan marketed a JDM (Japanese domestic market) version of the EP3 (which was exclusively manufactured in Swindon, UK and was shipped to Japan), which retained the highly renowned helical LSD similar to that of the EK9 and red Recaro race-seats. Other differences included a more track-oriented chassis/undercarriage settings as compared to the EDM, as well as a 215 PS (158 kW; 212 hp) i-VTEC engine (K20A) had a fully balanced crankshaft assembly with different intake manifold, exhaust manifold, higher-lift camshafts, higher-compression pistons, chrome-moly flywheel and ECU programming.
All of the Japan-spec K20A Type-R powertain were built in Japan and shipped to the Swindon plant to be installed in the Japan-spec Type-R EP3. The JDM EP3 was also available in the traditional Type R championship white while the EDM was not. The EDM has more relaxed gear ratios and some high rpm torque traded for low rpm torque compared to the JDM . The JDM Civic was said to be the better of the two.
The EDM EP3 Civic Type R was much acclaimed by motoring journalists across the UK, winning 'Hot Hatch of the Year' awards more than once from Top Gear, Fifth Gear and What Car?. The Civic Type R became a popular alternative for mainstream drivers clocking huge sales numbers. The 2001 release of this CTR (Civic Type R), as it is commonly referred to, also indicated Honda's return to Formula One after almost 10 years as an engine supplier to the Jordan and BAR teams – this eventually led to the full-fledged comeback as a dedicated F1 works team in 2005 with Honda gaining full ownership of British American Racing.
2004 saw this successful CTR updated with many improvements – revised EPS with quicker steering, revised suspension settings, projector headlamps (JDM came equipped with halogens only while the EDM came with an option for HIDs with self-levelling motors), lighter clutch and flywheel assembly etc.; based on Honda literature, this facelifted (FL) model was targeted at addressing customers' and critics' feedback such as understeer on the limit (due to the front MacPherson strut setup), numb steering response and lack of low end torque.
The base price for the 2001 Civic Type R (EP3) in the United Kingdom was of £23,100 (about US$34,650). Performance (all figures are manufacturer claims) 0–60 mph in 5.8/6.5 seconds (JDM/EDM pre-FL), 5.8/6.4 secs (JDM/EDM FL) 0–100 mph in 15.1/16 secs (JDM/EDM FL) Top speed 141 mph (227 km/h) and 146 mph (235 km/h) (JDM/EDM) Mugen made an upgraded version of the JDM Civic Type R, it has a sport exhaust system and an engine tuning, special Mugen Grille, and anti-roll bars for pro racing activities.
30th Anniversary Special Edition In 2003 – 2004 facelift and pre facelift Honda decided to celebrate 30 years of producing the Civic by offering a special edition 30th Anniversary Type-R. The special edition features special red and black sports seats Type R from world-renowned seat maker Recaro, air conditioning and privacy glass on the rear windows. It also has a lighter fly-wheel and clutch. The JDM addition has red bucket seats from Recaro, red carpet and door cards, a leather MOMO steering wheel, and also comes in the famous championship white.
30th Anniversary models were available in Nighthawk Black, Satin Silver and Milano Red and the JDM addition comes in championship white. Only 300 of these models were produced, 100 in each colour. Premier Special Edition In 2005 Honda introduced the Premier edition which had Recaro Trendline seats (similar to those found in the Anniversary Edition, only in red and black rather than all red), a darker shade of fabric on the rear seat centre sections, a Momo Steering Wheel, Red Carpet, Door Linings, "Type R" embossed into the front brake callipers and privacy glass on the rear windows.
Air conditioning was an option. They were available in Milano Red, Nighthawk Black, Cosmic Grey and Satin Silver. C Package In 2004 Honda introduced the "C Package" option (¥330,000 JPY) to Japan's Civic Type R line-up which included an additional colour, Satin Silver Metallic, HID lighting, rear privacy glass, automatic air conditioner and outside air temperature sensor. 3rd generation (FD2/FN2 chassis) (2006–2011) Third generation (FN2/FD2) Overview Production 2006–2011 Assembly Suzuka, Japan (FD2) Swindon, England (HUM) (FN2) Body and chassis Body style 4-door sedan (FD2) 3-door hatchback (FN2) Layout FF layout Powertrain Engine 2.

FD2 chassis (Asian version) Honda Civic Type R (FD2) rear The Japanese market Civic Type R (FD2) went on sale on March 30, 2007.
For the first time, the JDM Civic Type R was sold as a four-door sports sedan rather than a three-door hot hatch. Using the Japanese market four-door sedan as a base model meaning the new Type R is now bigger, wider and heavier. More importantly, the wheelbase has grown from 2,570 mm (101.2 in) to 2,700 mm (106.3 in), giving the FD2R a more stable stance in high speed cornering. The new Japanese model's engine output is higher than the European version's, with 225 PS (165 kW; 222 hp) being developed at 8000 RPM and 215 N⋅m (159 lb⋅ft) of torque peaking at 6100 RPM (versus 201 PS (148 kW; 198 hp) at 7800 RPM and 193 N⋅m (142 lb⋅ft) at 5600 RPM for the European model).
The base engine itself is borrowed from the Accord Euro R CL7 with its longer intake manifold. Changes have been made to the block in terms of mounting points for ancillary parts making it different from previous K20A. New technology such as drive-by-wire throttle and porting of the intake valve ports using techniques from the NSX are implemented. Honda says mid-range is increased by 10 PS (7 kW; 10 hp).
Drive is fed through a close-ratio six-speed gearbox, and a helical limited slip differential is fitted as standard. The front brake discs increased from the DC5R's 300 mm (11.8 in) to 320 mm (12.6 in) fitted with four pot Brembo callipers. Tire size is now 225/40 R18 running on Bridgestone Potenza RE070. Honda claims the chassis is 50% more rigid than the previous Japan-only DC5 Integra Type R, and the new model features an independent rear suspension rather than the torsion beam configuration used on the latest European Civic Type-R.
 To save weight, aluminium is used extensively and bonded with adhesive instead of welded. Though the chassis is larger and more rigid than JDM Integra Type R, it is only 1.8 kg (4 lb) heavier. A typical interior of a Honda Civic Type R (Japan) Exterior wise, the front bumper is wider and different from the standard Civic designed aerodynamically. The rear bumper features a diffuser built into the bumper and completing the aero package with a huge rear wing.
Inside, the trademark black and red bucket seats are no longer made by Recaro as with previous versions, but designed in house by Honda. Also gone is the Momo made steering wheel, instead replaced by a Honda made version. The familiar red-on-black colour scheme or black-on-black scheme is offered on Championship White and Super Platinum Metallic Silver while a black-on-black scheme with red stitching is for the Vivid Blue Pearl only.
In October 2008, the Civic received a minor face lift. The standard and hybrid versions now had a similar front bumper as the Type R while the head lamps gets a smoked tint and also redesigned tail lamps changes the round insets into octagons. The Type R also received new colours, with Premium White Pearl, Premium Deep Violet Pearl and Crystal Black Pearl being added and the Vivid Blue Pearl color was dropped.
In back to back tests the Civic Type R (FD2) was on average 1 second quicker than the Integra Type-R (DC5) at the Tsukuba Circuit and four seconds faster at the longer Suzuka Circuit. In a back to back test on the United Kingdom TV program 5th Gear, the FD2 Type-R was three seconds quicker than the equivalent FN2 UK version around Castle Combe Circuit in the wet. Only about 13,000 units of FD2 Civic Type R were produced until it ceased production in August 2010 due to failure to meet the upcoming emission requirements.
Following the previous success following the introduction of the FN2 Civic Type R from Europe in 2009, another batch of FN2 Type R with minor updates were available in fall 2010. The FN2 Type R has 197 hp (147 kW) vs the 222 hp (166 kW) output in the FD2 Type R. Civic Mugen RR (Honda ABA-FD2) Honda Civic Mugen RR in Japan. In addition to Civic Type R, 300 Honda Civic Mugen RR cars available exclusively in Milano Red had also been produced for Japanese market, which reduced weight to 1,255 kg (2,767 lb) using CFRP bumpers and aluminium for the bonnet.
The engine is rated 240 PS (180 kW; 240 hp) at 8000 RPM and 218 N⋅m (161 lb⋅ft) torque at 7000 RPM achieved through Mugen parts such as camshafts, exhaust system and ECU. Other exclusive items that make this a collector's item are Recaro SP-X seats and other Mugen items inside while special 18 inch Mugen 7-spoke wheels come equipped as standard. This version costs ¥4,777,500 (4,550,000+tax) (US$38,750) and went on sale on September 13, 2007.
 Mugen also debuted Civic Type-RR Experimental Spec concept car in Tokyo Auto Salon, which features 2157 cc K20A engine rated with horsepower of 260 PS (190 kW; 260 hp) at 8250 RPM and torque of 237 N⋅m (175 lb⋅ft) at 6750 RPM. Weight is further reduced using aluminium hood (4.6 kg (10 lb)), as well as the new titanium exhaust system (7.6 kg (17 lb)). Interior was replaced with more carbon fiber parts.
The car also features Intelligent-Tire Condition Monitoring System (i-TCMS) and Recaro seats. The Honda Civic Mugen RR Advanced Concept was debuted during 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon, based on the face-lifted FD2. It has the weight of 1,095 kg (2,414 lb). Brake disc was increased to 340 mm (13.4 in) diameter (320 mm (12.6 in) in Type R/RR). Civic Mugen RC (2008–) A race version called Honda Civic Mugen RC has also been produced, designed for the 2008 Honda Exciting Cup Civic One-Make Race-Civic Series.
 The engine is the stock K20A engine from FD2 Honda Civic Type R. It comes with following models: Basic: ¥6,247,500 (5,950,000+tax). Standard: ¥7,192,500 (6,850,000+tax). It adds racing wheel package (Mugen RC 18-inch wheel with Yokohama tire), brake package (front+rear brake pads), seat and steering (Recaro bucket seat, seat rail, steering wheel with box, TAKATA harness), carbon inner part option A (carbon fibre right floor cover panel, footrest, door lining) over BASIC.

2-litre Honda Civic Type-R Mugen engine The European market Civic Type R is offered only as a three-door hatch back and uses a different chassis and internal layout (notably tank placement below the driver's seat), which will serve as base for the next European Jazz. The rear suspension, formerly a double wishbone setup, has been changed to a less complex torsion beam axle. The drive train is largely the same as the outgoing model, offering 201 PS (148 kW; 198 hp) at 7,800 rpm and 193 N⋅m (142 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,600 rpm, with 90 percent of peak torque is available from 2,500 rpm.
 It runs on 225/40 R18 Y88 Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyres, while optional 19-inch Rage alloys run on Yokohama Advan Sport 225/35 ZR19 88Y tyres. The car has a curb weight of 1,320 kg (2,910 lb). The suggested retail price (MSRP) for the Civic Type R in 2007 was £17,627, or about US$35,254 at the exchange rate when launched. Versions Type R GT includes, dual zone climate control (Left:right independent), rain sensing windscreen wipers, refrigerated glove box, automatic headlights with dusk sensor, front fog lights, power folding door mirrors, cruise control, front and rear curtain airbags.
It is finished in the same three colours as the standard FN2, and a new addition the range, deep sapphire blue pearl.
