Honda North America has announced their Civic Type-R crate engine purchase program at the annual SEMA show just hours ago. What this means is that ordinary mortals can now buy "off the shelf", the legendary 306hp 2L 4cylinder Turbo Type R engine that powers the latest Civic Type R.

Update: So there's a snag, chances are you're gonna need to an approved member of the HPD grassroots support program as said by R&T here:

"To be eligible to purchase a Type R engine, you have to be a part of the company's HPD Honda Racing Line grassroots support program."
Price

The engine will retail US$6,519.87 or RM27,579.05, via Honda Racing Line program. The Honda Racing Line program is a Honda performance parts entity that has been supplying racing components to US racing enthusiasts for many years.

Honda NA, "For years, Honda racing enthusiasts in the U.S. watched with envy, as Europe- and Asia-based amateur racers were able to load their cars with Civic Type R crate engines. The wait is over. The 306-horsepower (SAE net) K20C1 engine that powers the new Civic Type R will now be available to U.S. grassroots and professional racers for verified, closed-course racing applications through the HPD Honda Racing Line program"

Stick it in a Lotus Elise/Exige mk1 with the useless Rover, and immediately it'll outshine the latest Toyota blown Elise/Exiges.

Honda is going to be seriously nitpicky about where this K20C1 engine goes. If you aren’t racing a Honda or Acura in a sanctioned series, you’re not eligible and will have to find your Type R motivator in a salvage yard. Honda makes buyers of the engine sign a lengthy contract that requires proof several times over that you’re not attempting to bolt it inside a Subaru BRZ or other non–Honda/Acura product and, essentially, that your creation is intended for on-track competition

Probably when reach MY, the price will be double! :smokin:
Can fit in which cars also?
will be more than double since got tax and the logistics cost from US to Malaysia, if not mistaken Japan dont produce this engine right:hmmmm:
by sea still on budget and can get double on the price I think, since cheaper on cost but engine reach here dont know what will happen at the end.
by air.. guarantee above double since calculate by kgs
