    IMO it's shaping up quite respectably. Looks a damn site better than the standard Civic... Nurburgring statement is a brave one.

    The boosted 1.6 that has been mention could by awesome so long as the car weighs **** all. I hope the car is bonkers!

    The WTCC 1.6 is about 310bhp or so I've read.

    There is potential in the new engine, I just don't think it'll be that tunable if it's already highly strung direct from Honda.

    The said the GTR was not tunable, but it was . TBF, if its 310 BHP out the box FRD then I don't think it think it will need tuning!

    Turbo'd engine = tunable.

    My point is it'll be a 1.6 potentially already running over 300 bhp. How far would you want to push that before it goes pop?

    Perhaps I should have said it won't be the case of a simple remap, it'll be a full engine build to get any more power out of it.
