And the jade is a fairly bigish car ,but very nice , they reckon it will be on par to a two litre ,from its 1.5 turbo engine! Amazing stuff the Japanese are coming up with, specially the f1 engine and its design

Don't get me wrong... i excited about the new 1.5L Turbo 4 Banger that Honda is coming out with, but i'm a little skeptical as far as the motor being tunable. The look of this motor and the turbo doesn't look like a traditional forced induction setup. I'm think that this motor could fall short like the motors from the 7th gens...
1.5 L D15B I4
1.5 L D15Y2 I4
1.5 L D15Z6 I4
1.6 L D16W7 I4
1.7 L D17A1 I4
1.7 L D17A6 I4
1.7 L D17A2 I4

Now the 2.0L Turbo is a different ball game... that could be the successor for the K20 series. Only time will tell. This is Honda's intro into VTEC Turbo... may the unicorns be nice to us.

Yeah its looking to be a different kind of monster all right but this time i think honda is back to what honda is known for , proper motors that can suit all party's, about tuning them i have no idea, but would be amazing if all you had to do is bigger turbo and a tune and your good to go , be interesting,
