    Default Honda City AT 2010 - R18 engine swap

    Hi folks,

    This one is for all those who own the new Honda City. As you might be knowing that in China, the City comes in a 1.8L variant with the R18 engine with 140 HP. Does anyone have information on whether this will be a simple bolt on mod or there will be some chassis modification required in the version we get here. Ideas and advice will be much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    P.S. Just out of curiosity, are any other 09/10 City A/T owners experiencing extremely sluggish performance from their cars because the manual version is quite responsive?

    Well nice idea but i may also advise you to modify your brakes. R18A pulls 1300KG civic to 220 and 0-100 under 9 seconds. Do the maths for the city youself.

    Definately. I wish to drive this 1.8 City. It must be really exciting!
    Apart from brakes, engine mountings, tyres, suspension and much more would need replacement. Those stock 175 R14 tyres would run and burn in no time.
    Lets look forward for any swap!

    idea is just flop.instead of spending so much money on modifying and swap,buy a new ciivc.
    U will have to modify its suspension,bcoz city is not stable at high speeds,plus some modification for brakes,mountings and cost of engine.

    Sounds like a good idea...but would be costly to do it right as its a fairly new car.

    In Pakistan we only know how to drive fast in a straight line......circuits? understeer? oversteer? camber? toes? what language you speaking?

    thats why some apparently high perf cars lost to my turbodiesel VW Golf on racing from carlton to DHA girls college and back. And its fun racing around roundabouts too. - nice 3 wheel action sometimes too..

    the feeling is indescribable and intoxicating at the same time - attacking a corner in a balanced car - like an oldschool RX7 or even an oldschool VW beetle 1302

    yeh its much easier in the US...the junkyards are full of interesting items you would need to build a pocket rocket

    on the other hand i just love the way a rx7 handles....its beautifully balanced....would love to own one...but sadly most of the rx7s have been butchered already...i doubt any would be left by the time i save up money

    Sirs

    I think the L13 is more then enough for developing countries, specially when petrol rates are so high and we have to install CNG.

    Honda will also offer the L15 with 118PS in coming facelift after a few years.

    The Euro Civic which is even much lighter then the City has a R18 already.

    Even it has the 2.2 Diesel which has 140PS @4,000 RPM and 340NM of staggering torque at just 2,000 RPM paired with a silk smooth close ratio 6 speeder gearbox.

    When I was a kid, in my neighborhood, I used to see a black 1985 JDM Accord with full digital LCD meter and a stock B20 under the hood and the owner said that it was capable of 0-60 in 7 S straight.

    I looked for that Accord everywhere but never found it again.

    6.5 S is the official 0-60 time of the last and best limited edition FD2 JDM Civic Type R with 240PS and 216NM with 6 speeder racing clutch K20 engine.

    All rotarary engines like |RX7 series and RX8 enjoys the best chassis balance and creamy rev and response, also due to low centre of gravity a neutral throttle steering that cannot be compared by cars that commands a price in multiple of it, even like a C63 AMG.

    Sir Mugen is half a second quicker still due to Carbon fibre.

    These times are for the stock JDM 4 door Type R.
