Like JK said. There are a couple guys in JHB that could do it rather easily. I could etune it as I have the Base maps.

It is corrected for atmospheric pressure. With a turbo you can compensate for the air pressure at altitude. It really only affects NA and SC motors. 0.5 bar is 0.5 bar whether it's at the coast or at altitude. So you will have the same power. Unlike a supercharger which is affected by atmospheric pressure.
As you can see at the coast a rotrex c30 makes 270kw. In JHB it will drop to around 230-240kw.
Turbo ftw.

I am so tempted to do this mod, but have plans for 2016 when the new R comes to town. So it would be quite some cash that could go towards the new monster coming out. :sly:

No need to do internals up to around 250kw.
You'll need a stronger clutch, hondata Flashpro and preferably a LSD but not necessarily.
Chris i see them motor with turbo goes up to about 270kw, that still within the reaches of the stock internals of the motor?

Well I know of some K20 motors that have gone up to 800hp on stock internals. Also this power is on flywheel so it's still around 250 on the wheels.
This is a safe reliable limit.

I would advise building the motor if going higher.

Such as the cams, valve train, pistons and con-rods?

Review on Formula R Motorsport / CivicRSA Civic Type R FN2 Bolt on Turbo Kit

Okay guys, thought I'd give some honest feedback and review on this kit. I got this kit and had it fitted by CivicRSA. My car prior to fitting this kit, was completely stock performance wise.

The only ancillaries you would need to run this kit would be a Hondata Flashpro (and possibly an uprated clutch?), however I got a LSD as well as upgraded my brakes (Pads, lines and fluid).

This kit is running on a stock motor and I've kept my exhaust stock as well (haven't removed any silencers or boxes either).

Pricing

Prior to obtaining this kit, I was obviously looking at the various options for more performance, especially at the Highveld. The performance I was looking for did not justify the money I would have to spend to modify the car NA, IMO - and I was after some extra oomf.

So the search began for possible force induction routes. My initial idea was to supercharge my car via Rotrex Supercharges or would be to import a turbo kit or have one done. The pricing and exchange rate to bring in a charger or turbo basically (depending on forex) lands anywhere between 70-100k. This is besides fitment. CivicRSA had the turbo kit for the advertised price which is much cheaper than importing any kit, and you get the service and knowledge locally should you require it and not left in the dark if you have concerns or issues. So turbo kit it was.

Economy

Part of the kit is the 1000cc injectors. Having gotten the kit I thought fuel would be the most draining part in terms of daily maintenance. Turns out I was wrong. Much like the NA car, the turbo car is all about how you drive the car. NA I was getting around 7-7.5L/100km, and driving daily on the turbo car, I get anywhere from 450km-550km (again depending on driving). For me, the car is actually MORE economical provided I'm driving slowly etc. However, you wont always do so with the turbo Lol. Daily Driving with racing on weekends lands me at around 450km+-. So in terms of economy its all up to you. But the car is pretty decent, stay under boost and youll get improved fuel economy. Due to the extra power I also find myself shifting down less to get power to overtake somebody etc, so the extra power through the gears and rev range really help.

Overall

Overall this kit is a piece of art. I had CivicRSA keep my stock exhaust due to the fact that this car is my only car and is used as my everyday daily drive to work and back. This daily drive, played a major role in my decision making, as the turbo kit is VERY reliable, I've had absolutely no issues, its also economical and powerful. The exhaust was kept stock due to my daily driving, so under 3500+- rpm, the car sounds completely stock. I had it this way so that its a normal car on the way to work and back with no droning noise or loud noises. However.. once you touch the accelerator above this, the car becomes an absolutely monster. You hear the turbo spooling, sucking in huge amounts of air and with every release of the accelerator, you hear the blow of valve whistling. Combine this with V-tec and the car forgets being a daily driver and becomes an absolute beast, pushing you back in your seat and waking you up to take control :evil:

The performance on the car is insane at only 0.5 boost with stock motor and stock exhaust. See dyno graph and video above (must still dyno in JHB). The car pulls so hard and the kit has so much more potential. Upgrade your exhaust and crank up the boost and youll have a monster no doubt. I haven't raced much, but I have come across an E46 M3, 2014 Audi S3, Polo GTI so far. Cruising at 3000rpm, your car sounds stock so they pull up behind you to bully you. Put your foot down and the gap grows and grows. The power delivery is un-real.

Overall I've found the kit very low maintenance, fuel efficient, much cheaper in terms of other kits, build is excellent, car is still a daily driver, reliable and much much faster. Maintenance is low, only checking oil levels etc.

The only downside is that the car no longer drives like a FN2 - in boost, its now a boosted car if that makes sense. I know many people go with charger to keep the NA feel. This wasn't an issue for me as I was after power, and the turbo drive and sounds is a love in its own.

CivicRSA definitely knows his stuff, and is extremely helpful and skilled. I had some noob questions relating to FlashPro and the turbo, and the after-sales service is excellent. Any queries and you've always got help.

Many thanks to CivicRSA for developing such a kit, I think it will really help SA FN2 users build their cars safely and at a more reasonable price. Big ups to JcivicK as well, for all the help and advice :thumbup:

BEWARE: BOOST IS ADDICTIVE :evil:
