    hp = [torque x rpm ] / 5252, it is a mathematical calculation

    turbo s14 Silvia vs ITR The ITR is pushing 200 HP and roughly 140 tq only... I don't know of any car with about the same HP number but has more torque that could kick a Type R in stock for stock form...
    Hmmm... that's something (RE: JRSC), I'dve thought it would give more down-low urge... oh well...

    Yes, it is an equation... no argument. What I mean is that peak horsepower gives a general indication of expected performance. Of course, you're right, the powerband graph is more indicative of actual on-road performance.

    RE: Type R... it's hard to find such a car because of the variance of power, displacement and weight. But given a 200 hp, 200 ft-lb car versus a 200 hp, 140 ft lb car, given the same weight, drivetrain, etcetera, the car with more torque will usually be a bit faster.

    oopppssss. . . sorry I made that confusing... I meant to say, a b16 with upgraded cams and tuned ECU matches a stock b16 with a JRSC

    that could be true but having a type R involved makes it hardly true... In addition to weight, short gearings and VTEC own their competitors.

    Bought it off a friend. They're curved stainless pieces that clamp around the filter. You can find them at almost any "ricey" accessory store in Manila.

    Like I've said, it helps quite a bit, but you will still suffer heat soak in traffic.

    RE: Type R - Again, it's very hard to tell. Honda's drivetrains are spectacularly efficient, and you're never sure whether or not the manufacturer is understating power. Heck, against other variable cam, high-strung cars (Mitsubishi Cyborg, Nissan Pulsar VZR), the Type R still comes out on top.
