Honda car tuning tips and advice. We have a wide range of tuning articles covering all models of Honda from small engined family Civics to large engine hot hatches and executive cars like the Accord and Integra. Honda introduced a range of high performing and well balanced engines in the guise of the Type R and S2000.
Honda make stunning and very solid engines. They tend to rev much higher than other engines and Honda produce some of the worlds most powerful and efficient NASP engines. Their high revving nature means that it is possible to extract more power with the addition of a few choice performance parts.
The Honda engines are very well built and can tolerate much higher speeds than most other makers. The VTEC mechanism has never failed under warrantee and provides 2 states of engine.
In terms of the power per 1000cc ratio for NASP engines Honda win hands down squeezing nearly 100bhp per 1000cc on more engines across their range than any other manufacturer. The Type-R models are the perfect Hondas and provide a suitable target for your tuning project and will also provide a large amount of compatible performance spares.
Following our tuning tips you will avoid many of the common mistakes and actually achieve the perfect car setup you desire. Even the well tuned Civic Type R and Integra Type R can be optimised further and benefit from extra power. We have frequent discussions about adding a supercharger or turbo to the 1.8 and 2.0 Type R engine in our forum as owners continually strive for even more power (some people are never happy)! Please join the forum for model specific questions and answers and to meet other friendly Honda owners and see what modifications they have done.

There were a number of different engine choices ranging from the a 1.8 which produce 115 BHP to the desirable 2.2 V VTEC and 2.3.
On paper the 2.3 would appear to be the engine to choose but in reality the 2.2 VTEC with its high revving characteristics is the best model to go for by far. Read More...
