About Type R Engines

High speeds cause an exhilarating ripple of thrill for many drivers. The Honda name does not immediately make you think of speed, but you can change that by equipping your Honda with a Type R engine. A fixture in the performance wing of the Honda family, the Type R delivers heightened horsepower, acceleration, and handling that increases a Honda's performance capacity to transform it from a standard vehicle into a veritable speed demon. The Accord Type R engine delivers 217 brake horsepower and 164 pound-feet of torque, and the Civic Type R reaches 182 horsepower, which is impressive for the small car. Honda's racing wing first developed the Type R engine, and it is not surprising that speed enthusiasts highly value the R engines, including the B18C Type R engine, which boasts 12 years of performance history. A quick search on eBay for the B16B Type R engine or one of the other models yields plenty of results. Honda no longer produces the B line, but Honda engines are famous for their longevity. If you have a yearning need for speed, then a Type R performance engine is a great choice to amp up your ride.
