Mugen's Honda Civic Breaking 240HP

Every Honda enthusiast has heard of Mugen. Mugen is the official tuning company of Honda. It is specialized in turning legal and street Honda vehicles into actual beasts. Established in 1973 by Soichiro Honda's son, Mugen means “infinite” in Japanese and benefits from an exquisite reputation around the world. It has even modified engines for Formula 1 teams, such as Jordan or Tyrell.

The recent Honda Civic Type R could not miss the exquisite tuning package from Mugen either. While the Japanese tuner prepares parts for both new and old Honda cars, the recent Type R has “suffered” from an amazing change. The tuning is based on a 2.0 liter engine, which is already powerful enough for a street car with its 198 HP. The three door hatchback has been enhanced with around 40 HP – approximately 20%. The engine could not get so far without changing the high compression pistons, not to mention about replacing the cams with a new and more durable set. The induction system has been cleared of all issues, so it breathes freely and aspires like there is no tomorrow.

The powerful Honda Civic has been boosted with a new exhaust system made of stainless steel too, but also a Mugen manufactured ECU that increases the total RPM with 500 units. If the street legal model could go up to 8,000 RPM, the Mugen version goes up to 8,500 RPM. The H20A engine has been taken to a new level, but the costs are obviously directly proportional with it.

Fortunately for the enthusiasts, Mugen does not necessarily provide full packages only. Instead, tuning fans may opt for specific parts only. The most expensive upgrade is clearly the engine, but one can take it slower than that. With all these changes, the powerful Honda Civic is still legal on the streets.
