However, the American Hondata has prepared a package to upgrade the 2-liter VTEC turbo engine, in which it fits new nozzles, new fuel pump, new direct injection pump and hoses, with the aim of higher fuel flow to the engine. These, in conjunction with Hondata's FlashPro brain, which has several programs, increase the horsepower of the whole depending on the customer's wishes.
Hondata is aiming for its Typer R package for homeowners who are likely to further modify their cars, so the basic set-up they tested in the Japanese hothatch features an upgraded intercooler and high-flow catalytic converter. Thus, using simple 95-octane gasoline, the car delivers 375 horsepower and 575 Nm of torque, while the factory delivers 320 horsepower and 400 Nm.
With 95 octane gasoline and 46% ethanol, the engine delivers 415 horsepower at 607 Nm of torque, while with the installation of a new Full-Race turbo, a new catalytic converter and 95 octane petrol and 40% ethanol, the engine delivers 477 horsepower and 594 Nm of torque. Finally, for those who want to use pure racing petrol, Honda offers a custom program, making the engine deliver 550 horsepower and 654 Nm of torque.
