Honda Civic biggest-selling 3-door hatchback

Honda Civic biggest-selling 3-door hatchback

The Type R saw off all opposition to become the biggest-selling 3-door hatchback in the UK
Honda’s latest Civic Type R has become the biggest-selling hatchback in the UK, it was revealed today.

From its launch in March 2007 to the end of February this year, a total of 5,192 customers purchased this particular model, putting it ahead of the Ford Focus, its nearest competitor.

To achieve this, Honda introduced the GT line, fitted with a more refined, high-spec cabin. To say this was a successful move would be an understatement, with 90 per cent of the range’s sales being made up of the GT line.

Long-term owners will be pleased to hear the residual value of the Civic Type R GT is an impressive 52 per cent, comparing favourably with the Focus ST (40 per cent) and the Golf GTi (43 per cent).

The industry has recognised the achievement and popularity of the Type R – it was voted Top Gear magazine’s Hot Hatch of the Year and scooped the same award in Auto Express’s New Car honours list.

Dyno of fd1a turbo

2008-04-08T07:16:56.301-07:00

Did a dyno on low boost of 0.38bar boost few days back.
A hp of 175bhp and 225torque was produced at engine.
The result was pretty good for me when running at such a boost,
fuel consumption is good and power is there for daily driving.

Crankshaft for K20A by JUN!!
Power up your Civic Type R with this addition.
http://www.junauto.co.jp/products/cylinderblock-part/crankshaft/k20.html?en
CRANKSHAFT - K20A



While a standard crankshaft is cheap, it is inferior in strength and balance field. Since JUN FULL COUNTER CRANKSHAFT is performing the special surface treatment, it has realized both improvement in durability and reduction of friction. At JUN, the crankshaft of ideal form was made by shaving a billet material. The crankshaft made from shaving has flexibility in a design as compared with a forge product. A crankshaft designer can determine form satisfactorily. JUN FULL COUNTER CRANKSHAFT is a genuine crankshaft with both the counter weight of ideal form and the excellent balance.
