Not only do I want to see a timeslip, I need a Video Too. I'm curious as to the 60', and 1/8th mile times.
Not flaming, I just want the facts.

Sorry, I can't provide a slip. I wasn't there. I saw it on the Celica board before and put up a link to it just for people to read.

Only reason why the current ITR gives u that kick when VTEC engages is the drop on the power curve. If you have seen B series VTEC on dyno's... you'll see a power dip then a spike. IMO...I think this was done on purpose for the market. Normally with a after market ECU, you'll get rid of that dip and make it nice and flat.

How do you know he ran a 14.3? Did you see the time slip?Motor Trend has timed the Type S at 15.16 at 91 mph. Thats a big difference. The Honda Type R was tested at 14.3. I don't belive a Type S is running the same as a Type R.

i bet it isn't a type S , but a TYPE R engine in it...cause they've said that its should run this
What in the world do you mean, a Type R. First, I'll assume you're talking about a B18C5 engine, from a 3G Type R. Okay, thats stupid b/c that engine makes less hp and less torque, not to mention the engines are not compatible due to the pistons rotating in the opposite direction. wnd, how would you explain that a new RSX type R motor found its way over here already, considering the car isn't released yet in Japan?

And for all you people saying this is no big deal, thats where you're wrong. Most of us with mods to our GS-R's would be damn happy to get a 14.3 1/4 mile time, and here's a stock car that can do it without mods! Our type of car has come a long way in recent years, so cut the crap and quit whining about how it doesn't match up with a mustang.

No.
I'm sure he's referring to the RSX Type R that isn't even out yet. I highly doubt someone in America was able to get the RSX Type R Engine and swap it into a USDM RSX Type S.
