Boosted Type R
For those deep into the Honda scene, it’s no revelation that VTEC and boost combined makes for one hell of a lethal combination. Riku Nguyen picked up his own boosted R as a “mint runner” only to have it knock on the door the following day. The B18 makes use of a Darton MID sleeves with JE forged pistons and Molnar Technologies rods, while, up top, the head contains a Skunk2 valvetrain with Pro 1+ camshafts and HKS camgears. Boost is delivered via a Holset HX Super 40, which sits atop a custom equal-length divided manifold. While the goal is upwards of 400kW at the front, Riku has kept the exterior styling subtle so as not to give away the secret.
Tim Chai’s DC2 Type R is all about handling and aero, packing the full Hardrace bush catalogue with Skunk2 Pro C-II coilovers, Top1 Motors double-stack canards, and an APR Performance GTC200 3D carbon wing
