thanks Jules , sounds like you know your stuff. How much would a super charger be or the ecu remap? and what bhp and fuel results would I get ?

Depends how well you want to do it? When you start adding clutches, LSD, brakes etc you can be looking at about £6-10k. A 2nd hand charger will save you a few grand.

You can expect around 300bhp.

Your best bet is to get one already done!

As Ivor said though a type-r forum will be your best bet for more info. Im on civictype-r.co.uk as jules86  :wink:

Or get a MK5 GTI  :wink:

You will need an ED30 with 330BHP to keep up with a ctr with 300bhp as the bhp/ton would then be identical.

.....and the driver, weather, tyre pressure, tyre tread, amount of fuel in the tank, which was most recently serviced, temperature, altitude, fuel ron etc etc

Lots of variables, the only definitive example would be which has more power, as it then would be much more probable to win over the lesser powered car.

Yeah buying a fast car out the box would be a much better choice. If i want to get from a-b as quickly as i can without losing the roof and body panels (i.e. ariel atom) i will buy an evo, not a modified hatch that was originally built to get to the shops and back while having a bit of fun.

this thread still going  :huh:

A rhetorical question, no? Even if it wasnt you posting would bump it and therefore it would still be going  :laugh: Its like sending the terminator back, but if they didnt there would never have been a terminator so technically its never been built for the future to send it back as the future has not yet happened for it to travel back   :laugh: :lipsrsealed: :sick: :undecided:
