I've been thinking about going FI on my Type R for some time, I've been considering the Vortech setup with the chargecooler but was wondering what other peoples experiances were with this setup?

Just found a bit more, looks like maybe not the vortech then.

I'm looking at getting my car into the low 13s, I run 14.6 stock and don't want to have to build the motor. What do people recommend as my best FI route?

Pretty much sums it up. Since you don't have any goals in mind other than "I have a type R, I want to go fast" we really can't be of assistance. You don't tell us your budget, your preference on powerband location and all the good stuff we need to help.

So read up. Lots of stuff out there.

This forum is such a nightmare for giving crappy answers like that.

Budget wise I will spend what I need to in order to get the job done right.

Powerband I would have thought was obvious, an 'R' is geared for 5700-8400Rpm.

The car gets used for autoX, drag strip runs and the odd run to work. I want to get 13's compared to my 14.6 and want enough power for me to achieve that. (230-250 whp?)

Get the job done right? With F/I, you want to build it up then.

Powerband? Oh it's so obvious that's where you wanted your powerband, especially since you picked a supercharger.

Again, I suggest you read the articles and search and read prior threads. There isn't going to be any spoonfeeding here like you're obviously used to. Sorry man.

I started the thread asking for peoples opinions on a particular product, the opinions weren't in its favour so I asked what people would suggest just for ideas. I don't see the problem?

I don't want to build it up, the b18 is perfectly capable of holding the power I want to achieve in it's stock form, i'll be AEM EMS so the tune can be spot on.

The powerband of a supercharger isn't fixed by anymeans (especially if you get a centri. charger)

I have read every article on this site (I've been a member for 3 years, just changed my login name due to change in car) I used to run a small tuning company and now work for Honda as a staff engineer. I don't want spoonfeeding just some discussion. Isn't that why this forum exists?

The problem is this has been covered sooo many times before....you want to be spoonfed. If you did some searches, I'm sure you could find the info you are looking for...

Ok, so which threads have you looked at? If you've seen these threads about the Vortech, you would know it's not for you...in which case a JRSC would be a much better fit...If you tuned it on 6 psi, you could easily reach your goal.

I've got all of the info but not evrything can be summed up in peoples posts, there times when it is better to talk about things.

I am perfectly capable of going away not listening to a word you say and building a 600Whp B18 and running 10's, that isn't the plan however and I just wanted other peoples ideas of a good alternative to the product I had mentioned. (I was on the Civic Type R production project BTW and prob know more about Honda 4 Cyl engines than most people on here
)

I said way above that the info I now had was that the Voretch was a numbers only setup.

Downside to the JRSC is the difficulty in cooling the charge a decent amount after it has been compressed.

Honda buy ECU modules from a supplier with the data all ready coded except for the VIN number writing, the software is specifiead and written in Japan, it would be so much hassle to get a unique ECU coded it is easier by far for me to go standalone.
